Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Toto Turner Stadium will host Thursday’s football game between Hapoel Beer Sheva and Motherwell. Yossi Abukasis’ troops aim to build on back-to-back wins over Dinamo Batumi (3-0) and Laci (2-1), but this match will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts, who scored two late goals in the previous round. Jhonatan Agudelo is pushing for a start after finding the net in the 2-1 win over Laci.
Motherwell, on the other hand, outclassed Glentoran 5-1 in round 1, with the team defeating Coleraine on penalties in the second qualifying round. The Scottish side face a difficult task in the Toto Turner Stadium clash, and seeing that Uganda international Bevis Mugabi misses the game through suspension, we are tempted to put our money on the Israeli outfit. It has to be noted that Hapoel Beer Sheva recorded four wins in the previous five home games in the Europa League.
