Hapoel Be’er Sheva vs Slavia Praha
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 22 October 2020
Kick-off at 17:55 UK/ 18:55 CET
Venue: HaMoshava Stadium (Petach Tikva).
After winning three of their four EL qualification games, Hapoel Be’er Sheva makes it into their third appearance at this EL stage so far in their records. However, this group includes two CL group stage participants from last season, one of which is Slavia Praha.
Slavia Praha crashed out of the UCL qualifiers this term, but will now look to build on their promising unbeaten rate in the Europa League so far. The visitors travel here unbeaten in eight away league matches, and typically start well, which is why they are the favorites to win in the clash.

Hapoel Be’er Sheva vs Slavia Praha Prediction
Be’er Sheva is on a five-game winning run at home in all competitions but has won just two of their previous six EL group stage home games. Besides, playing at a neutral venue will probably affect their hopes to build on the ground advantage in the clash.
Hapoel has played a Czech side in their previous two group stage appearances in the EL schedule, losing all four fixtures and scoring just once across those games. This has to be an advantage for Slavia Praha to use their decent away form over the host in the fixture.
Keeping this in mind, along with the league supremacy that Czech 1 Liga brings over the Ligat ha’Al in Israel, the away side is closer to creating chances in the encounter. Hence, the draw no bet over Slavia Praha will probably be the best bet for the punters.
Furthermore, Slavia has netted the opening goal in eight of their last nine competitive away fixtures. This points to the tip for Praha to open the scoring at Petach Tikva, which will probably serve the purpose from the goals area to yield decent returns.
