Maccabi Haifa vs Strasbourg Match Preview
Strasbourg have been the better side early on against Maccabi Haifa but still fell behind through a wonder goal from Maxim Plakuschenko, managing to bounce back from the spot and ultimately completing the comeback to earn a 3-1 home win in the first leg – as they now travel to Israel in hope they can build on the performance.
We’ve seen excitement on both ends but it feels Le Racing have earned the advantage deservedly and Thierry Laurey will now want his men to build on it, as they boast a five-match winning streak since late last term. They’ve picked it up through the pre-season and beat Zurich (2-1), Standard Liege (0-2), and Toulouse (3-1), which should all have them in great mood.
Ayid Habashi’s red card late in the first half made it a lot harder for Maccabi at Stade de la Meinau and they now have to find a way to recuperate, denied a way back into the contest by the bar late in the first leg – which has served them well beforehand as well truth be told.
Greens have beaten Mura (5-2 on aggregate) with confidence in 1st Qualifying Round but struggled to keep it up, as the first-leg loss comes as a second in a row for Marco Balbul’s men – with a Super Cup disappointment in the hands of Hapoel Be’er Sheva (0-1) behind them as well.
We will now back Strasbourg to capitalize on the lead earned and we feel they can leave Sammy Ofer Stadium unbeaten, as we stick our necks out for a Draw at 12/5 with William Hill regardless of the exciting contest we obviously expect in the second leg as well.
We will go for goals and a Yes on Both teams to score too, which comes at 4/6 with bet365. Strasbourg will surely want one as it could as well untangle the contest for good so we do hope for an attacking approach once again.
