Maccabi Tel Aviv vs Ferencvaros Preview and Predictions

Maccabi Tel Aviv vs Ferencvaros
Europa League First qualifying round
Date: Thursday, 19 July 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Winner Stadium (Netanya).

Maccabi Tel Aviv have held Ferencvaros to a 1-1 draw in the first leg and they now host the Hungarian rivals hoping to build on the success and make their way to the next round over them. They’ve thus extended a nine-game unbeaten streak and Vladimir Ivic’s men will surely be bursting with confidence at Winner Stadium once again.

Maccabi have beaten Bnei Yehuda, Maccabi Netanya, and Beitar Jerusalem in their last three outings in front of the home crowd and we’ve seen them net seven goals along the way, conceding just one along the way. They’ve impressed with a rock-solid spell of form and we do feel we’re in for another such display on the day.

Ferencvaros have been less convincing in their pre-season and we’ve seen them earn just two draws in three games, with a 1-0 loss at DAC along the way. Having conceded a last-minute equalizer in front of the home crowd, they now travel to Netanya hoping to end the unwanted streak, coming in desperate need to find the net.

Maccabi Tel Aviv vs Ferencvaros: Prediction

We do believe they have what it takes and we’ll now back Maccabi to untangle this clash with a win, which comes at 1.66 at this point. They’ve been rock-solid recently and it’s obvious Ferencvaros are in for a very tough challenge, with few in the know getting behind them this time around.

We don’t believe we’ll see many goals on the day either and with that in mind, we’ll now also go for Under 2.5 goals FT at 1.72. We could see both sides very devoted to a defensive display on the day, with few all-out attacks or great chances to get on the scoresheet.
