Competition: Europa League
Market: Southampton to win against Hapoel
Odds: 13/10 @ Bet 365
It’s top versus second in Group K as Premier League side Southampton travel to the Turner Stadium to face Israeli Ligat HaAl side Hapoel Beer Sheva in the Europa League on Thursday night, and the visitors are favourites to come out on top to go three points clear at the summit.
Home side Hapoel won their opening game in the European competition against Inter Milan, but will have a tough task matching Southampton’s energy levels on Thursday. Hapoel have started strongly in their domestic league too, but the gulf in class between the two sides could be telling.
Southampton, who beat Sparta Prague in their opening outing, are coming off the back of two consecutive wins in the domestic division, winning their last away game comfortably against West Ham United. The Saints will put Hapoel under pressure to win back possession, and could well take all three points as a result of such dominance.
Hapoel and Southampton are locked on three points from their first Europa League clash, so there’s plenty to play for this week. Saints have the momentum and are being backed by Bet 365 with odds of 13/10 to see past Hapoel.
