Our prediction for this Israel Ligat ha'Al match:
Ashdod will be looking to move one step closer to avoiding relegation to the Israeli second tier when they take on Hapoel Ra’anana at their Yud-Alef Stadium. Ashdod are on the right track to secure the Ligat Ha’al survival, but they can’t afford any complacency in the season finale. The visitors, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom of the table ahead of the trip to Ashdod, meaning that the lack of confidence should prove to be the biggest problem for them in the Yud-Alef Stadium showdown.
Considering that important defender Adi Nimni misses the game through suspension, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the hosts. When the two teams met in the national championship in January, Ashdod outclassed Hapoel Ra’anana 3-0, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.
