Hapoel Beer Sheva vs Feyenoord for the Europa League qualification match on Thursday at Turner Stadium.
Hapoel Beer Sheva
On Sunday, August 25th, Hapoel Beer Sheva made their debut in the 2019/2020 edition of Ligat Ha’Al, the First Division of the Israeli Championship. It was nothing more than a goalless draw away from home with B. Jerusalem crossing the 180-minute mark without shaking the opposition’s net.
The last goal scored was against the same opponent on Sunday, but in a clash for the Toto Cup that was played on August 18th, Hapoel Beer Sheva led 3 – 1. They opened the score after 17 minutes of the first half, since then it has shown offensive fragility.
In the Sunday duel, you can mitigate the result because of the warm weather of the match, which had many stoppages. Eleven cards were dealt, ten yellow (four for home and six for Hapoel) and one red for visitors.
While his rival took part in that pitched battle at the opening of the new season of the Israeli Championship, Feyenoord could calmly devote themselves to training aimed at Thursday’s match.
Eredivisie, First Division of the Dutch Championship, has postponed all meetings of the weekend, which was the fourth round of the 2019/2020 season, to all clubs involved in the Champions League and Europa League qualifiers.
Feyenoord’s side are unbeaten in the season. Between local and international duels held six clashes. They beat two of them and tied four times.
The intensity of their local duel is indicative that not even Hapoel Beer Sheva believes in a turn that will enable them to reach the Europa League group phase.
The more restful Feyenoord, however, has shown a significant drop in yield when playing outside their domains.
Thus, prediction on the success of the hosts is the best guess for the meeting this Thursday for the second leg of the playoffs that will indicate the last qualified for the 2019/2020 edition of Europa League.
