Monday sees just one matches from Israel’s Ligat Ha’al league but it will be a competitive affair between two evenly matched sides. Ironi Kiryat Shmona vs Bnei Sakhnin see’s 9th take on 10th and whilst both sides are currently in the relegation group places, both are just one point off the top 6. A win here for either team could be enough to see them springboard out of the relegation group and into the championship group. The two are separated in the league only by goal difference and it looks set to be a cracker of a game.
Neither of these teams head into this matchup with much confidence behind them as both have only won once in their last five league outings. It’s Kiryat Shmona who start as very slight favourites at evens and we think they should just about edge this encounter. Bnei Sakhnin have lost their last three matches and have only won twice in their last eight matches, what’s more is that Kiryat Shmona own the recent head to head having won the last three. It’s going to be a tight match but Kiryat Shmona at even money could be the right way to play.
Over 2.5 goals
When it comes to betting the over or under 2.5 goal market, the smart play looks to be on backing the over. In the last five matches between the pair, the over 2.5 goal mark has been achieved in the last two matches – but outside of the head to head contests Sakhnin have seen over 2.5 goals in two of their last five matches whilst Kiryat Shmona have seen the 2.5 goal mark surpassed in three of their last five. We will hope that the recent trend continues here and have to back the over.
Both teams to score
In hoping for a high scoring game we will back both teams to score and find the back of the net in this one. In the recent head to head contests between the two sides we have only seen the feat achieved twice in the last five matches but both of these teams have two of the poorest defensive records in the league and we have to think that this could be a game with plenty of chances and goals.
