H Beer Sheva v Southampton

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Hapoel have a 100 per cent home record this season
Expert verdict
Hapoel Beer Sheva started their Europa League campaign with a stunning 2-0 success at Serie A giants Inter and they can also overcome Southampton. The Israeli side missed out on a Champions League spot to Celtic but they beat the Bhoys at home and this looks a tricky trip for Saints.
