Maccabi Haifa vs Red Star Belgrade – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Red Star Belgrade have won seven games on the bounce ahead of their trip to play Maccabi Haifa on Wednesday evening. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Red Star Belgrade Double Chance

Serbian giants Red Star Belgrade have been in scintillating form of late and with seven straight victories behind them in all competitions, they should be supremely confident ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League qualification clash with Maccabi Haifa. The Israelis have done well to reach this stage, though they have only won 50% of their UCL fixtures over the summer and Red Star have the class and tactical nous to take advantage of any weaknesses in the Maccabi ranks. With that in mind, they look excellent value in the double chance market.

Osman Bukari to Score Anytime

With six goals in seven appearances for Red Star since his summer move from Nantes, Ghanaian attacker Osman Bukari has quickly become a fan favourite in Serbia. Three of his early efforts were plundered in the Champions League qualifiers and Bukari has the skills to make another splash in the competition this week. With five goals in his last four starts alone, Bukari has momentum to burn and we expect him to be a pivotal figure again in Israel.
