Hapoel Haifa will welcome Beitar Jerusalem to Sammy Ofer Stadium for a matchday 20 fixture in Israel Israeli Premier League. The last meeting on 24th October 2021 ended in a Beitar Jerusalem 2-1 win. Both sides have met twenty-four times in the most recent seasons. Hapoel Haifa has won 6 matches, and Beitar Jerusalem triumphed in 7. Recent outings average 2.63 goals, while both teams score 54% of the time.
Hapoel Haifa’s latest fixture against Hapoel Nazareth Illit ended in an away 1-0 win. Hapoel Haifa was very effective while counter-attacking. In the end, it was enough to make the difference between the two teams. Hapoel Haifa set the tone early and scored in the 23rd minute.
Beitar Jerusalem’s recent game against Hapoel Tel Aviv ended in a home 0-2 loss. The Menorah had plenty of possession, but not so much in the final third of the pitch.
Since the start of the season, Hapoel Haifa is more dominant at home. They have four wins out of 9 games on home soil. Although Hapoel Haifa is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 33% home clean sheets.
Beitar Jerusalem has picked up 3 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Beitar Jerusalem has collected 0.80 points on average per away game, compared to 0.78 at home. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Beitar Jerusalem kept a clean sheet in just 30% of their visits.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Hapoel Haifa is currently unbeaten at home in one game. Since the start of the season, they have just three home defeats.
The Menorah failed to win in five consecutive away games. It will be a big surprise to turn up on Saturday and win against Hapoel Haifa.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Hapoel Haifa wins on average 1.56 points per home game, compared to 0.80 points per away game for Beitar Jerusalem. My prediction is Hapoel Haifa to win.
