Ludogorets v Hapoel Be’er Sheva Betting Tips: Goals at both ends likely

19:30/Aug 02

Sports betting writer Bradley Gibbs gives his prediction for Wednesday’s Champions League qualifier second-leg between Ludogorets and Hapoel Be’er Sheva at Ludogorets Arena.

Having both lost the game and failed to score away from home last week, Ludogorets have very much set themselves up for something of a uphill struggle; however, with 90 minutes left to play on their own patch, the Bulgarian outfit might still fancy their chances of going through to the next round. For Hapoel, it was a case of getting the job done in the first-leg and it’s fair to say that the Israeli’s come into this second fixture with the upper hand.

Although they essentially came away from last week’s fixture with nothing, Ludogorets’ performance wasn’t without a promise and so their is still hope for them here. Georgi Dermendzhiev’s men, for all they were slightly weak-looking at the back, offered plenty going forward and will be confident of turning some of that attacking promise into goals in front of their own fans. Having said that, the visiting side, with a two-goal lead, will be looking to counter and thus away goals cannot be ruled out. The bet that stands out is ‘Both Teams to Score’.

Ludogorets may well have failed to find the net last week but punters shouldn’t be put off by this. Not only did they manage to take more shots, but the Bulgarian side also showed more than enough attacking intent to suggest that they’re capable of scoring against this opposition. In fact, having seen his side get in behind the Hapoel back-line on more than one occasion, Dermendzhiev will have probably left Toto Turner Stadium wondering just how they failed too bag at least one away-goal. However, as mentioned above, their performance certainly wasn’t without promise and so the former defender will fancy his men to find the net here.

As far as Wednesday’s visitors are concerned, last week’s result wasn’t far from perfect and they’ll know just how strong a position they are in. However, they’ll also be well aware that Ludogorets aren’t likely to pass up as many opportunities in front of their own fans and so scoring an away-goal will definitely be on the agenda. Having notched twice last week, Barak Bakhar’s team ought to fancy their chances of causing problems here, especially since the counter-attack will be a viable option. What’s more, the fact that they managed to notch three goals away from home in the last round bodes well, as does the fact that the Israeli visitors have scored in all but one of their last ten matches on the road.

All in all, with the way this one is set up after the first-leg, further goals look on the cards and so this pair, who’ve failed to score just three times between them in their last 20 combined respective home and away matches, are both expected to register on the score-sheet as they fight for a place in the final qualifying round.
