Maccabi Tel Aviv Prediction – Can Maccabi Tel Aviv take second chance?

After losing 3-2 on aggregate to Romanian club, CFR Cluj, in the qualifying round of the Champions League, Maccabi Tel Aviv have another chance at European football this season.

They now enter the Europa League at the 3rd qualifying round stage and will have home advantage in this 1st leg against Suduva.

Despite winning just 2 of their last 6 matches overall in all competitions, Maccabi Tel Aviv will be confident that they can progress to the play-offs in this competition.

The new Israeli domestic season hasn’t started yet so Maccabi have had to play a few pre-season friendlies in the meantime.

Out of the three warm-up matches they played, the hosts secured just the one win which was a 2-1 win away at Dutch side, Sparta Rotterdam.

The one domestic match they’ve played so far this season was the Israeli Super Cup final against Bnei Yehuda, which they won 1-0.

In addition, Maccabi Tel Aviv possess a very strong record on home turf at their Winner Stadium as they’ve lost just 1 of their last 31 matches in all competitions here.

This could spell trouble for the visitors, Suduva, who have done well to reach this stage of the competition.

Suduva Prediction – Can Suduva keep it tight?

The Lithuanian club are another side that have fallen out of the Champions League at the qualifying round stages, but have another chance in this competition.

A 2-1 aggregate loss to Serbian side, Crvena Zvezda, saw them eliminated from the elite competition, but they remain in European contention as they make their way to Israel for this 1st leg.

After losing in the Champions league, Suduva entered the Europa League at the 2nd qualifying round stage where they recorded a win against San Marino outfit, Tre Penne.

The gulf in quality between the two sides was glaringly obvious as Suduva recorded an emphatic 10-0 win on aggregate, winning both home and away legs 5-0.

With a 3-0 home win against Stumbras in the domestic Lithuanian A Lyga on the weekend, this means the visitors head into this clash in confident mood.

The visitors have won their last 3 matches on the trot and overall away form has seen Suduva win 7 of their last 8 matches on the road.

However, the majority of these away results were achieved on the domestic stage while results on the road in the Europa League have been more circumspect.

Suduva have won just 3 of their last 10 away ties in the Europa League.


Key-Facts – Maccabi TA v Suduva

  • Maccabi Tel Aviv have lost just 1 of their last 31 home matches in all competitions
  • Suduva have won just 3 of their last 10 away ties in the Europa League
  • These two sides have never played each other before in any competitive match


Betting Tips Verdict

Maccabi Tel Aviv’s know-how and experience at this level should be too much for Suduva, so expect the hosts to record an easy win here with goals.
