Our prediction for this Israel Ligat ha'Al match:
Ironi Kiryat Shmona will be looking to escape the danger zone when they take on Ashod at Kiryat-Shmona Municipal Stadium on Saturday. Ironi Kiryat Shmona restarted the season with a 3-1 loss at Maccabi Netanya, and, as a result, their Ligat Ha’al status is in great danger ahead of the visit of Ashod. Kobi Refua’s men did well to beat Maccabi Netanya 3-0 in their last home game in the league, but they have been anything but impressive on home soil in the 2019/20 season.
To make things even worse for Kobi Refua’s troops, Saturday’s match will be played behind closed doors due to the fierce of coronavirus spread. Ashod, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 3-2 win over Hapoel Ra’anana. The visitors are on the right track to secure the elite division survival, meaning that the hosts want this win more.
