Maccabi Haifa Preview – Can Maccabi Haifa make group stage?

Having already accounted for the likes of Greek side, Olympiakos, and Apollon in the previous qualifying rounds of the Champions League with aggregate wins of 5-1 and 4-2 respectively, Wednesday’s hosts, Maccabi Haifa, will be keen to safely negotiate this upcoming two-legged affair against Red Star Belgrade.

However, Maccabi Haifa have won just two of their last eight matches overall in all competitions and just two victories in the previous seven ties at Champions League level, so the Israeli hosts look far from a guaranteed win in this 1st leg on Wednesday night.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Red Star Belgrade Preview – Can Red Star gain vital 1st leg lead?

By contrast, Wednesday’s visitors, Red Star Belgrade, have won each of their last seven matches on the trot in all competitions which includes a 7-0 demolition over two legs against Armenian outfit, FC Pyunik, so the visitors will be in confident mood.

Red Star have lost just three of their last nine Champions League ties overall but the bigger picture shows the Serbian visitors have managed to pick up just three wins from their previous 16 outings on the road at this level, so a straight win here does seem unlikely, but they should at least avoid defeat here.
