Our prediction for this Europa League match:
A place in the Europa League second qualifying round will be at stake when Hapoel Be’er Sheva and Laci face each other at Yaakov Turner Toto Stadium in what is expected to be a very interesting game. The two teams played out a 1-1 draw in the first leg at Stadiumi Laci, but it has to be noted that the Israeli outfit dominate the game. Seeing that Hapoel failed to turn their dominance into goals in the first leg, they are eager to get their job in front of home fans.
The Israeli club produce much better showings at home than on the travels and we predict that they are going to advance to the Europa League second qualifying round. In their last home game in the Europa League Hapoel Be’er Sheva played out a 2-2 draw with APOEL, but they are definitely capable of beating the Albanian side at their Yaakov Turner Toto Stadium.
Highlighted Team (Hapoel Beer Sheva):
Hapoel Be'er Sheva are an Israeli football club based in Beersheba. The club was founded in 1949 and they play their home games at Turner Stadium. The capacity of the stadium is 16 126 and it was opened in September, 2015.
Hapoel wear red shirts and white shorts when playing on home soil and they play in blue shirts and black shorts on the travels. The club played their first game against Mefalsim and they defeated their opponents 5-4. Back then no more than five teams competed in the Israeli league and it has to be noted that the likes of Hapoel Rishon LeZion, Hapoel Kfar Saba and Hapoel Ramat Gan were other teams that participated in the league.
