Ironi Kiryat Shmona have played 4 Ligat ha'Al games at their own stadium so far this season, resulting in 1-0-3 (wins-draws-losses). The Kiryat manager A. Nussbaum might feel some added pressure to get something from this game after two straight home defeats.

The fans are hoping that Ironi Kiryat Shmona will strike back in this match, putting things right after the 0-4 away loss in the Ligat ha'Al game against Maccabi Haifa (placed 2nd). Kiryat were outplayed and humiliated in their previous game, as mentioned in the paragraph above. They will need to reinstall their confidence before this one.

Preceding that match was the home game against Maccabi Tel Aviv that was lost 1-3.
