Sammy Ofer Stadium hosts the confrontation between Maccabi Haifa and Zeljeznicar, two teams coming from Israel and Bosnia and Herzegovina. They are fighting for a place in round 2 of the Europa League.
We have prepared information about teams, but also a reasoned prognosis.
Last season was quite successful, finishing at 2. But it was 14 points away from the champion Maccabi Tel Aviv and also at Beitar Jerusalem, ranked 3rd.
In 4 of the last 6 disputes he scored, and in 2 of them he escaped without conceding a goal. It is quite inconsistent since in the previous 3 games it has 3 victories and 2 defeats.
At home he has only one failure in the last 5 meetings, so there is a hard nut there.
She also participated in the Europa League in 2019 and was eliminated by Strasbourg in round 2.
Bogdan Planic, former at FCSB, recently signed with this band. Only midfielder Ihab El Abed was paid money, 225 thousand euros at Beitar Tel Aviv.
Trent Sainsbury, one of the incumbents, left for Kortrijk. Goal scorer Nikita Rukavytsya is missing being injured.
She is the runner-up in Bosnia and Herzegovina, finishing just 3 points behind Sarajevo.
He had 3 points more than Zrinjski, the band that occupied the last step of the podium.
He scored in 7 of the last 8 duels and in 6 of them he did not score a goal. He comes after a failure, 0-1 at home with Mladost Doboj Kakanj, but before that he had 7 victories in a row and in only one he received a goal. He had only 2 defeats in the trips from the previous season. In 2018 in the Europa League, Apollon Limassol took her out in round 2.
She was the outbreak of coronavirus at the club and that is why this match is being played only now.
Irfan Fejzic, Frane Ikic, Damir Sadikovic and Ermin Zec are still infected and will be missing.
▪️The two fighters have not faced each other until now.
⚽ Maccabi Haifa vs Zeljeznicar probable teams:
▪️Maccabi Haifa (4-3-3): J. Cohen – Mabouka, Habshi, Planic, Menahem – Chery, N. Lavi, Ashkenazi – Haziza, Y. Shua, WIldschut.
▪️Zeljeznicar (4-3-1-2): F. Eric – S. Stefanovic, L. Miletic, Kosoric, Sehic – Veselinovic, Mujezinovic, Alispahic – Stilic – L. Juricic, Lendric.
Football Prediction of the Day Maccabi Haifa vs Zeljeznicar
Maccabi Haifa is a stronger team and I think it will prevail, especially since it has the advantage of its own field.
Her lot is 3 times more expensive than the opponent’s, and this will definitely be seen on the grass.
The Israeli team plays a fairly closed football and in its recent matches it has registered little. She has won 3 of the last 5 matches, but in all these victories we have had at most 3 successes, 2 of them with the score of 1-0. Goal scorer Nikita Rukavytsya is missing, and that takes a lot of the offensive force.
Zeljeznicar has a few absences and it is very possible to affect her game. But this will motivate the players even more, who come from the ex-Yugoslav space anyway, and the athletes there are well known to put a lot of heart into it.
This will limit the score, but I see that a failure in this move is inevitable.
