Olympiacos Piraeus vs Maccabi Haifa Prediction & Betting tips
Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium in Piraeus will host one of the most interesting duels in the second round of the UEFA Champions League, between Olympiakos and Maccabi Haifa, this evening from 20:00. The two teams have met three times, the last time in the round match that ended in a tie, score 1-1, and the other two in the UEFA Champions League groups from 2002, 20 years apart, and then Maccabi managed a victory with 3-0 at home and in return a spectacular draw ended, score 3-3.
Olympiakos finished in first place in the Greek Super League last season, managing to win the title without too many problems. The Greeks played eight friendly matches this summer, but the results were not very good, managing only two victories, two draws and four defeats. Although they managed only one draw in the round, Olympiakos remains the favorite for qualification in the 3rd preliminary round of the UEFA Champions League.
On the other hand, Maccabi Haifa also finished in first place in the first football league in Israel, managing to win the title with an eight-point advantage over the second place occupied by H. Beer Sheva, a team against which they also lost the final cup and the Israeli Supercup from the beginning of this season. Although it managed a draw in the round match, Maccabi Haifa scoring the equalizing goal in the 92nd minute, has little chance to qualify for the 3rd round.
