UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 3 August 2022
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Sammy Ofer Stadium.
Maccabi Haifa are the reigning champions of the Israeli top flight and they had secured the league title in phenomenal style. While they have not been able to maintain this form lately it needs to be mentioned that they still have been dominant at home. And at the same time Apollon have been struggling to find consistency as well.
Apollon are the title-holders of the Cypriot league. But currently they are on a long winless run and most of these fixtures had finished in losses for them. And particularly on the road their defensive performances have simply been worrisome.
Going on, it also needs to be mentioned that they have not had that much experience in continental football competitions as well.
Meanwhile Maccabi had won the Israeli title after having scored 79 goals in the process. Only one team had even managed to score more than 60 goals and only one other team had managed to score more than 50.
On top of that they also have been on a good run at home for quite some time now and have consistently found the back of the net in these appearances as well.
Considering these observations expect a victory for the hosts Maccabi Haifa this Wednesday.
