Date: Wednesday, 17 August, 2016

In this first match of the playoffs for entry in the Champions League Celtic hosts Hapoel Be’er Sheva.
The hosts are set for very serious favorites for entry into groups of the tournament, which is quite understandable in view of serious differences of class, financial resources and expertise.
The team from Glasgow, which is currently led by former Liverpool coach Brendan Rodgers is a serious name in the Champions League. The specialist did not start particularly confident of his new post, but slightly gently team began to step up and improve performance. The rise of the team coincided with the start of the season in the Scottish Premier League, which partly explains what is happening.
Guests go to Scotland with all the best at their disposal. So far they eliminated first Sheriff Tiraspol with 3-2 on an Agg. after reached one of their biggest success in the club’s history – the removal of Olympiakos. With achievements to date Hapoel Beer Sheva to ensure at least participate in the Europa League, which is also a significant achievement for a team with similar capabilities.
Hapoel is a team mainly composed of local players, including Israeli internationals Ben Sahar, Melikson Buzaglo and Goresh For them, however, visiting British team is severely tested. I expect progress in the team of Celtic continue and lead to winning the first match with the Israelis.
