The last meeting on 7th November 2021 ended in a Maccabi Haifa 4-0 win. Both sides have met twenty-five times in the most recent seasons.

Ironi Kiryat Shmona’s latest fixture against Maccabi Tel Aviv ended in an away 1-0 loss. I expected more from Ironi Kiryat Shmona. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points.
Maccabi Haifa’s recent game against Ashdod ended in a home 6-0 win. (The Greens) הירוקים dominated the game and deserved the win. Maccabi Haifa had good chances in both halves and scored in the 7th, 19th, 31st, 43rd, 68th and 74th minute.
So far, Ironi Kiryat Shmona plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.27 points per away game on average compared to 1.10 points at home. Although Ironi Kiryat Shmona 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 20% home clean sheets.
Maccabi Haifa has picked up 14 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Maccabi Haifa wins 2.10 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows.
The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. Ironi Kiryat Shmona has won just 30% of home games. On average they score 1.00 goals and concede 1.40 per game. Maccabi Haifa is one of the best teams in the league. On paper, they have a great squad and I expect them to make life difficult for their opponent.
The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. Ironi Kiryat Shmona wins on average 1.10 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against Maccabi Haifa. My prediction is Maccabi Haifa to win.
