The Icelandic club FH Hafnarfjordur are struggling in the domestic league and hold on to a 5th position in the table after 14 rounds. They struggled for consistency both home and away this season and concede a lot of goals.

It is fair to say that FH had put on some decent performances at home in Europa League qualifiers, but their inconsistent nature often lets them down from making deeps run in the competition. Their current form is not that great as well, therefore it is an advantage for the experienced visitors.

Hafnarfjordur vs Hapoel Haifa Prediction

Good news for neutrals watching this game is that both teams like to attack. So we should see a very good game with end to end play. The away side will need to be careful so they don’t allow too many spaces to develop in midfield.

Our main bet will be to see Hapoel Haifa be winning the game at half time this will make them a very good price for us to back.

We also believe that the away side can score a goal and so we will back both teams to score.

The prices all round are good value and if we keep to minimum stakes we should be able to turn some profits.
