Sundays early kickoff from Israel’s Ligat Al Ha’Al is a fascinating contest between Hapoel Hadera and Hapoel Haifa. Both sides find themselves clinging onto a top six place with Hadera in 6th and Haifa in 5th. Both teams are level on points and are only separated by goal difference.
Both sides head into this fixture with some decent form behind them but it’s Hadera who have the form edge. Hadera currently sit second in the form table after winning eleven points from a possible fifteen. They were on six match unbeaten run before defeat last time out against league leaders Maccabi Haifa. Hapoel Haifa enter this match having won four of their last five in all competitions. Haifa have managed to win eight points from the last fifteen available. In a tough match to call neither side has really excelled at home or away. Hapoel Hadera have the eighth best home form in the league whilst Hapoel Haifa have the ninth best away form. The head to head record between the sides is also close with Hadera winning two, Haifa winning one and there being two draws between the sides. In a match where it might be hard to split the two sides, the draw could be the sensible way to play.
Hapoel Hadera over 1.5 goals
In a match where value looks hard to find, it might be worth siding with Hadera to score over 1.5 goals in the match. Hadera in three of their last four home games have scored at least two goals. They face a Hapoel Haifa side who have the joint worst defensive record out of all the sides currently inside the top 6. At 15/8 this could be one of the value plays of the match.
Both teams to score
Both teams have scored in just two of the last five head to head clashes between the sides, but both are on a nice run of goal scoring. Hapoel Hadera have scored at least one goal in seven of their last eight whilst Hapoel Haifa have found the back of the net in four of their last five, despite the recent head to heads not yielding a huge amount of goals between the sides, we will back both teams to score here.
