FC Ashdod prepare for this fixture coming off the back of a 1-1 Ligat HaAl drawn game vs Ironi Kiryat Shmona.
It has been a rare occasion in recent times where FC Ashdod have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that The Dolphins have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 7 goals during that time.
Taking a look at their past results, FC Ashdod:
have not lost a league tie with Hapoel Be'er Sheva in their last 3 matches.
are without a win at home for the past 3 league matches.
Hapoel Be'er Sheva
Previously, Hapoel Be'er Sheva drew 1-1 in the Ligat HaAl tie with Maccabi Tel Aviv.
Looking at their form, and Hapoel Be'er Sheva have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, with opponents netting 7 goals in all. Defensively, The Camels have clearly had some problems. While that may be of interest, time will tell whether that trend will be sustained in this game or not.
A look at their previous results shows us that Hapoel Be'er Sheva:
have not won against FC Ashdod in games played away from home for the previous 3 matches in the league.
are unbeaten in their previous 2 away league matches.
haven’t won away from home in the past 6 league games.

Timothy Dennis Awany (Thigh muscle rupture), Gil Cohen (Hamstring Injury), Fahad Bayo (Knee Injury), Dean David (Fractured Toe) and Shlomi Azulay (Hamstring Injury) will not be taking part for FC Ashdod manager Ronny Awat.
Team News: Hapoel Be'er Sheva
Due to a fully healthy squad available to choose from, Hapoel Be'er Sheva manager Yossi Abukasis does not have any fitness worries to report coming into this match.
We think that FC Ashdod will need things to go their way to put one past this Hapoel Be'er Sheva side who we think will win and very possibly keep a clean sheet.
We’ve gone for a very competitive encounter with a 0-1 winning margin for Hapoel Be'er Sheva at full-time.
