Panathinaikos vs Maccabi Haifa prediction – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Panathinaikos to win

  • Panathinaikos are top of the Greek Super League 10 wins from 13 games and a very impressive record of 36 goals scored and eight goals conceded.
  • Maccabi Haifa have not won a single game this season in the Europa League and scored the fewest goals in the competition with only one going in.

We have also decided to back Panathinaikos because of how Maccabi Haifa have let in eight goals in the Europa League, while they are struggling in the early stages of the Israeli Premier League with nine let in from seven games and just four wins.

It is a meaningless game for both Panathinaikos and Maccabi Haifa on Thursday, as neither team can qualify for the next round of the Europa League. For more football betting tips on this game, check out the under 2.5 goals alongside our Panathinaikos vs Maccabi Haifa betting tips.

As Panathinaikos are the favourites to win this game, we expect them to get a fairly comfortable win. However, with nothing to play for but pride, we could see a fairly dull match with very few goals.

Odds now sit at 10/11 (1.91) for under 2.5 goals once more, which gives an implied probability of 52.4% for a goal each for Toulouse and LASK.

Player to Watch: Fotis Ioannidis

Ioannidis has been the main man for Panathinaikos this season with four goals in five Europa League games. This means the striker has bagged himself all but two of the total goals for his team in Europe, scoring against Villarreal twice and Rennes twice. 

Ioannidis netted twice over the weekend for his club too, taking his tally to five in 12 in the Greek Super League.
