Our football match prediction:
Hapoel Be’er Sheva, who impressed in the Europa League last season, are determined to book their place in the group stages of the Champions League this term. The Camels recorded a hard-fought 2-1 win over Honved in the first leg of the Champions League second qualifying round, meaning that the Israeli champions will have to be at their sharpest in Wednesday’s football match if they are to defend their slim lead in the tie against the Hungarian side. Hapoel are likely to adopt a cautious approach in the return leg and that is the main reason why we predict fans will see a low-scoring affair in Budapest. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment and we would not be surprised if they play out a draw in Wednesday’s Champions League clash. It has to be noted that Honved will play their first ever home game in the elite competition against Hapoel Be’er Sheva.
