Maccabi Herzeliya-Maccabi Petach Tikva
Pick: Under 2.5 Goals
Stake: 8/10 Odds: 1.65
I find this one as a nice bet for the Israeli Premier League for saturday.
Maccabi Herzliya earned the promotion to the Israeli Premier league, after finishing at the first place in the Israeli 2nd league(Leumit).
Although they are now in the Premier league, Herzliya squad is really looking bad, i don't expect to see something from them this year, as i think their target is to stay in the league, which can be a very harsh task for them.
At their 1st match at the league, they lost 1-0 at Ashdod, and at Sunday,in the Toto cup, they lost in a home match 0-2 to Maccabi Tel Aviv.
Maccabi Petach Tikva is known for some of you, as they qualified last year to the group phase of UEFA cup. Since then the team has struggled and almost relegated, but they finished at mid-table position.
Petach Tikva started the league off with a medicore home 0-0 against Hakoach Ramat Gan. In the Toto cup they've won one match 1-0 and lost two other 0-1.
I can see both teams playing defensievly style, and i can't see more than 2 goals at this one. I think that score will probably be a 1-0 one of the sides.
