In the second leg in qualifications for the UEFA Champions League Maccabi Tel Aviv will host NK Maribor.
This match will take place on neutral ground in Larnaca in Cyprus due to current situation in Israel.
The first match was very tough, Maribor was better side and when all expected the goalless draw home team have managed to score the winning goal in 94 minute.
Israeli Premier League haven’t started yet, while Maribor had already played two matches in domestic league and have managed to win twice in the first 2 rounds. The match against O. Ljubljana which had to be played on Saturday is postponed, so Maribor had enough time for the rest and better prepare for today’s match.
In Maccabi Tel Aviv squad, Gal Alberman is out due to injury, while Barak Badash is suspended.
Maccabi Tel Aviv is under pressure to go through, so they have to play open.
Maribor’s coach Ante Šimundža has announced that they will not only defend their advantage.
Maybe Maccabi Tel Aviv is a better side, but they didn’t have competitive matches this season, they are playing away from home and that’s could be an advantage for the visitors.
I believe Maribor can avoid defeat in this match and go through.
Maccabi Tel Aviv vs NK Maribor Betting Tip: NK Maribor Ah +0.5 @ 1.85 (Bet365)
