Hapoel Beer Sheva vs Flora Tallinn
UEFA Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 17 July 2018
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Toto Turner Stadium (Be’er Sheva).
Hapoel Beer Sheva have one foot in the second round of Champions League 2018/19 qualifiers after a thumping 4-1 win at Tallinn.
The Israelites have been one of the consistent performers in the qualifying rounds over the past few seasons and have the fast growing reputation as an entertaining side in Europe.
Hapoel made it to the Europa League group stage in last two editions that came after failing to negotiate through the Champions League qualification.
Yet, the team from Beer Sheva come with a 100% win record at home in Champions League qualifiers and blew aside the likes of Celtic, Ludogorets and Olympiacos in the process.
Flora Tallinn, the record Estonian Champions had hardly made it past the first hurdle of the Champions League qualifiers. They won just one of the 17 matches so far at this competition and lost a massive 12.
It is unlikely that Flora can take anything from the battle at Turner Stadium, against a side like Hapoel, who are heavy with their attacking artillery.
Hapoel Beer Sheva vs Flora Head-to-head
Their meeting at the Le Coq Arena in Tallinn last week is the first ever meeting between Hapoel and Flora in a competitive football match.
Hapoel Beer Sheva vs Flora Prediction
This is a dead rubber and we have enough reasons to believe that Flora has little left in their tank to battle against Hapoel. This could easily end up as another home win for the Israelites, who has won each of their 6 previous Champions League qualifying fixtures at the Turner Stadium with ease.
Hapoel Beer Sheva vs Flora Betting Tips
