PREVIEW: WEEKEND ISRAELI ACTION
Bryan Gerzicich and Ironi Kiryat Shmona desperately need a win at Bnei Yehuda and Leonard Krupnick hopes to break back into the starting squad as Maccabi Netanya visit Bnei Sakhnin.
Ironi Kiryat Shmona - Bnei Yehuda
Gerzicich and the Blue Lions will face a tough task when they visit fourth place Yehuda this weekend with the two teams heading in opposite directions. Yehuda has won two consecutive matches and will be looking to inch further towards to the top of the league with a win.
Kiryat Shmona simply needs to find a way to win. They've only won once in eleven matches and continue to fall further off the pace while looking to defend last season's league title. Despite a manager change earlier in the season, the results have not been favorable for the Blue Lions.
The match is scheduled to take place barring any further violence. Kiryat Shmona's Europa League match against Atheltic Bilboa was postponed this week due to the violence. Neither team are reporting any injuries ahead of Sunday's match.
Leonard Krupnik hopes to get back into ninth place Maccabi Netanya's squad as they visit Bnei Sakhnin on Saturday.
Ryan Adeleye hopes to see the field for the first time this season as Hapoel Be'er Sheva vist Hapoel Tel Aviv, who are tied for first place.
