Maccabi Tel Aviv vs Suduva
Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 8 August 2019
Kick-off at 18:30 UK / 19:30 CET
Venue: Netanya Stadium (Netanya).
Maccabi Tel Aviv failed to make use of home advantage in their last clash in the Champions League and were consequently dumped out of the Cup by CFR Cluj with a 3-2 aggregate scoreline. Despite making more attempts at goal than their foes in that matchup, the squad were wasteful of their opportunities and found the back of the net just twice.
Suduva went up against a far from competitive Tre Penne side, who they brushed aside without breaking much of a sweat. The visitors tallied ten goals to their name, over the course of two legs, and managed to keep a clean sheet intact in both.
However, that will not be the case when they make the trip to Netanya this week to take on the reigning Israeli Champions Maccabi Tel Aviv, who lost just once on home soil last season.

Maccabi Tel Aviv vs Suduva Prediction
Suduva have reason to be afraid of this opponent. The colossal scorecard that they posted in the previous round does not give them the upper hand or even the slightest of advantages over the home team by any means.
The hosts scored forty-one goals at home in their previous campaign, while conceding not more than seven in the process. It is also worth mentioning that Maccabi Tel Aviv did the aforementioned while featuring in a much more competitive and superior league as opposed to their counterparts.
Three of the last five clashes at this venue have seen over 2.5 goals on the scorecards at the end of the ninety minutes, with the home team contributing two or more goals in each of those matchups. Given that they have also kept a clean sheet in seven of their last ten games on home soil, expect a high scoring clash, with Maccabi Tel Aviv racking up the goals tally, all by themselves along with a clean sheet in hand.
