In the UEFA Champions League qualifiers playoff, Maccabi eliminated Red Star with a total score of 5-4 and thus qualified for the group stage.
The quality of their style of play is truly respectable. They like to control the pace, keep the ball in their possession and put constant pressure on the opposing defense to force a mistake. Their most dangerous player is center-forward Frantzdy Pierrot, who scored five goals in the qualifiers and made the strongest impression on football pundits of all the Maccabi players. Neta Lavi and Dolev Haziza are the two midfielders who are the most creative and on whose inspiration this team’s game depends.
In Lisbon, they were defeated by Benfica 0-2 in the first round, but they showed a solid game, especially in the first half. They failed in the second, but we believe that everyone in the club is satisfied with how they played that match.
On the other hand, Paris Saint-Germain beat Juventus 2-1 in the first match at their stadium. Thanks to Kylian Mbappe’s goals, the Saints led 2-0 in the first half, but they fought to keep the win until the end of the match. With the score 2-1, Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic hit the post, so the Italian club was very close to equalizing the score and winning one point.
They have been playing very well since the beginning of the new season. In eight official matches in all competitions, they achieved seven victories and only one draw. In total, they scored 27 goals, which is 3.3 on average, and registered several dominant triumphs.
PSG’s roster is loaded with players of incredible quality. They literally have no weak position and many consider them favorites to win trophies in all competitions.
Coach Christophe Galtier, however, will not be able to count on Presnel Kimpembe, Keylor Navas and Renato Sanches, who are injured and will not travel to Israel.
These two teams have never met before.
Maccabi Haifa (3-4-1-2): Cohen; Seck, Goldberg, Batubinsika; Eliyahu, Fani, Lavi, Haziza; Chery; Atzilli, Pierrot
Paris Saint-Germain (3-4-2-1): Donnarumma; Marquinhos, Pereira, Ramos; Mendes, Veratti, Vitinha, Hakimi; Messi, Neymar; Mbappe
We expect another efficient match of the Saints. We believe that Maccabi’s defensive line does not have the necessary quality to stop one of the most potent attacks in the world at the moment. Therefore, we believe that we will see a very effective clash.
Prediction: Total Goals Over 3.5
