Feyenoord vs Maccabi Haifa Predictions & Analysis

Feyenoord host Maccabi Haifa in the last game of the UEFA Europa Conference League group phase on Thursday evening in Rotterdam.

The match does not have any importance whatsoever as both teams know their final rank in Group E even before this week’s fixtures.

Feyenoord secured the top spot in the group with a 2-2 draw at Slavia Prague in the previous round.

They have done the real job with back-to-back victories in a double-header against Union Berlin in third and fourth round respectively.

Head coach Arne Slot thus has the luury of resting his main stars for the weekend’s Eredivisie clash away at Groningen.

Feyenoord are also doing great in the domestic league where they are currently just one point below leaders Ajax with 11 wins in 15 matches.

Feyenoord demolished Fortuna Sittard 5-0 at home in the previous league game.

Maccabi Haifa have also been pretty efficient in the final third in their latest domestic games.

They bagged 12 goals in the last three Ligat ha’Al wins. Nevertheless, Maccabi Haifa have only scored one goal in five Conference League games this term.

  • Both Feyenoord and Maccabi Haifa have been scoring goals for fun lately which is why the Over 2.5 goals FT looks as a great betting option at the 1.70 odds.
