This is a UEFA Europa League Qualifying match.
Here is Futaa's brief preview and best bets to place.
- Competition: Europa League Qualification
- Date: Wednesday, 9 September 2020
- Kick-off: 20:00 EAT
- Venue: Sammy Ofer Stadium
The Green Apes (Maccabi Haifa) have been dominating the Israeli Premier League for the past few seasons and they would have won the title the last year, if not for the extraordinary form of Maccabi Tel Aviv.
Coming into this Europa Qualifier, Barak Bakhar’s men are the favorites to secure the win, and that’s due to primarily two reasons.
First of all, they are from the Israeli top flight, which is far better than their Bosnian counterparts, and the next factor that tips the scale in favor of the Green Apes is that the game takes place at their home.
The hosts have a solid home record in the Europa League – winning six of nine at home and they should add to that here, with the visitors conceding twice in four of their last five European trips.
Zeljeznicar have seen each of their last three European games finish with both teams scoring, having found the net in six of their last seven matches on the road in this competition.
They’ve started their domestic season in fine form, topping the table with nine goals in five matches.
