Our football match prediction:
Hapoel Be’er Sheva impressed in the Europa League last season and thanks to a 2-1 win over Maribor at Yaakov Turner Toto Stadium they moved one step closer to booking their place in the Champions League group stages. Hapoel have been producing fine performances in the qualifiers for the elite competition this term, but Tuesday’s football match against Maribor will be anything but a walk in the park for the visitors. The Slovenian side are tough to beat at home and it has to be noted that they suffered only one defeat in previous nine home games in the Champions League. Anyhow, given Hapoel’s recent form, we predict that the Israeli side are going to make it to the group stages of the elite competition. Nigerian attacker Anthony Nwakaeme has been scoring goals for fun in the Champions League qualifiers and Maribor defenders are likely to have their work cut out for them when facing him.
