Our prediction for this Europa League match:
HaMoshava Stadium in Petach Tikva will host the Europa League game between Hapoel Beer Sheva and Slavia Prague. The Israelis have been impressive in the Europa League this term, with the team beating the likes of Laci, Motherwell, and Plzen to make it to the group stages. Hapoel Beer Sheva aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, but this match will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts.
The Czech side, on the other hand, aim to recover from a heavy 4-1 loss to Midtjylland in the Champions League playoffs, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail in the HaMoshava Stadium. Considering that the game will be played on neutral location, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on the Czech outfit.
Highlighted Player (Josue):
Born in Ermesinde, Portugal on September 17, 1990, Josué Filipe Soares Pesqueira is a 174-cm tall midfielder, who plays for Turkish side Akhisar Belediyespor. Josue is a product of FC Porto football school, but he played for the likes of Padroense and Candal during his youth career as well. After ending his loan spells with the likes of Covilha, Penafiel and VVV, Josue signed a contract with Pacos Ferreira in the 2011/2012 season.
The Portuguese footballer played 42 games for Pacos Ferreira before returning to Porto in the 2013/2014 season. In the summer of 2016 Josue joined Galatasaray on loan and after scoring two goals in 25 appearances for the capital club, he moved to fellow Turkish side Osmanlispor in the 2017/2018 season.
Josue currently plays for Akhisar Belediyespor, the Turkish club that booked their place in the 2018/2019 Europa League group stages thanks to a win over Fenerbahce in the Turkish Cup final. His main position is attacking midfielder, but he is used as a winger as well.
Highlighted Team (Slavia Prague):
Slavia Prague is considered one of the most famous teams in Czech Republic. The Cervenobili won the Czechoslovak First League on 13 occasions and they lifted their fourth Czech First League in 2017. Despite winning the domestic trophy in the 2016/2017 season, Slavia Prague eventually failed to book their place in the Champions League group stages as they were beaten by APOEL of Cyprus in the play-offs. Sparta Prague are regarded as Slavia’s fiercest rivals and the two teams face each other in the Prague derby.
The club was founded on November 2, 1892 and it has to be noted that the club was initially focused on cycling. In March 1896 Slavia Prague recorded their first ever victory, with the team beating AC Prague 5-0. The Cervenobili play their home games at Eden Arena and the capacity of the venue is 19.084 (football). Slavia Prague are well known for their red and white shirts and white shorts.
