In the upcoming Israeli Premier League match on Wednesday, a face-off is set between Hapoel Jerusalem and Maccabi Petach Tikva teams.
Hapoel Jerusalem took a win over Hapoel Petah Tikva with a scoreline of 2:1 in the last played match on the 30th of December. In the current season of 2023/2024, the team is holding the 12th spot in the championship's Ligat Ha al league table. Out of 13 matches played, the team has 3 victories, 7 losses and 3 draws, netting 11 goals and conceding 18. Presently, the team boasts 12 points, with a current form as follows: 3 wins and 1 draw.
Hapoel Petah Tikva occupies the 14th position in the league table. They have two victories, eight losses, and nine points after playing 13 matches.
Maccabi Petach Tikva last played and lost to Beitar, scoring 2-3 on the 31st of December. In the current 2023/2024 season, Petah Tikva holds the 9th spot in the Israeli championship's league table. They've contested in 13 matches, of which they clinched 4 victories, endured 6 losses and played to a draw thrice. The team has racked up 19 goals whilst allowing in 24. At present, they've amassed 15 points. Maccabi Petah Tikva has had just one win and lost 4 in the last five encounters.
Beitar Jerusalem is at the 10th place in the league table. They have similarly played 13 games, achieving 5 wins and suffering 5 losses. They have amassed 14 points to date.
Hapoel continues to climb out of the basement after a poor start, but they are still a long way off from escaping the drop zone - still trailing by 6 points and 6 teams in close proximity. However, the visitors are playing terribly and have dropped from 5th to 9th place, just 3 points ahead of Hapoel - my bet is on the hosts claiming victory with an Asian handicap (0).
