Maccabi Haifa vs Olympiakos Free Betting Predictions

The first meeting between Israel’s Maccabi Haifa and Greece’ Olympiacos will take place in Haifa, Israel. This will be a hard-fought duel as both teams seek to participate in the next season of the Champions League. We have settled on the best two predictions as follows:

Under 2.5 goals

The first possibile outcome in this game based on our analysis is fewer than three goals. Both teams have found it hard to score goals. Moreover, both teams have defensive challenges ahead of the game hence will be more focused on solidifying the backline.

Notably, Maccabi Haifa scored one goal in one of their last three games and failed to score in two matches during that time. On the other hand, Olympiakos scored at most a goal in each of their last five games. The scoring challenge on both sides is why we expect a low-scoring match on matchday.

Likelihood of goals on only one side

We also think there will be goals on only one of the pitch. With defensive and scoring challenges on both ends, this is expected to be a low tempo game. Both teams are joining the UCL qualifiers in Round two and also meet for the first time.

Maccabi Haifa vs Olympiakos UCL Qualifier Match Preview

The dates for the second round of UCL qualifier matches are set and the Maccabi Haifa hosts Olympiakos of the Greece in the first leg of the encounter. The second leg of this matchup will take place later this month on 27th. The question is, will Maccabi overcome their recent struggles to bag important points against an equally struggling team?

The hosts lost three of their last five games and won only once within that duration. In the last five games, Maccabi Haifa scored 7 goals. However, they failed to score in two of their last three games, further highlighting the inconsistencies that have continued to plague the Israeli team in recent assignments. They will need to strengthen their defence in this game if they can’t score because that will hand them an advantage ahead of the second leg.

On the flip-side, Olympiakos of Greece also lost three of their last five games. The visitors found the net 5 times in their last five games and failed to score in only one game within that time. The visitors look better than Haifa offensively but will need to do more defensively to have a chance of progressing in the second leg.

Notably, both Maccabi Haifa bagged 1W, 1D and 3L in their last 5 games across all competitions. The hosts scored 6 while the visitors netted 5 times in those games. The hosts conceded 3 goals while the visitors leaked 9 goals in the last 5 matches.
