Hapoel Be'er Sheva - Hapoel Tel Aviv
Bryan Gerzicich and Hapoel Tel Aviv are looking for their first win this Saturday when they face Hapoel Be'er Sheva.
Hapoel Tel Aviv have gotten off to a sluggish start in both league and European play this season. In addition to drawing at home against Bnei Sakhnin in their first league match, the Tel Avivian team missed out on the Europa League group stage, losing to Romanian outfit Pandurii in the third qualifying round.
After a summer move from Israeli giant killers Kiryat Shimona, Gerzicich appears to be settling in nicely at his new club. The American has lined up in the midfield in every game so far for Tel Aviv.
Be'er Sheva jumped out to a positive start last weekend, beating Beitar Jerusalem on the road by two goals. A home win against one of the league's biggest team's would be a huge boost for Be'er Sheva as they attempt to break out of the middle of the pack this season.
Neither team have any absences to deal with.
