Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Hapoel Beer Sheva play host to Universitatea Craiova at their Toto Turner Stadium in what is expected to be an interesting Conference League game. The two sides played out a 1-1 draw in the first leg, with Hapoel failing to take advantage of Paul Papp’s red card. The Israelis, though, produce much better showings at home than on the travels, and they are surely capable of matching the Romanians at Toto Turner.
Keep in mind that defender Hatem Abd Elhamed misses the return leg through suspension. Universitatea, on the other hand, will be without aforementioned defender Papp in the reverse fixture. Elvir Koljic should miss out with injury for the away team. Anyhow, yet another close encounter is on the cards, and we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on draw.
