Maccabi Haifa will play the first leg of their playoff round tie against Crvena Zvezda in the Champions League on Wednesday evening. Both sides would have been happy with the draw, as they avoided many of the big hitters in the draw, but which side could be best positioned to get the win and take a step closer towards the Champions League group stages?

Champions League Qualifier Preview

Maccabi Haifa have been very professional in the early rounds of Champions League qualification this season, as they have successfully navigated a tricky looking run of fixtures. In the second qualifying round, they came up against Greek giants Olympiacos, eventually running out 5-1 winners on aggregate.

Their performance in the second leg of the tie was excellent, as they recorded a famous 4-0 away success. Frantzdy Pierrot scored twice in five second half minutes, while Tjaronn Chery and Mohammad Abu Fani also scored in the win. They were dominant once again in the previous round, as they took a 4-0 lead into the second leg against Apollon. However, they were made to sweat in that fixture, as they fell 2-0 behind in the opening 25 minutes. But, they were able to regain their composure and hold on.

This could be a better draw for Crvena Zvezda in the third qualifying round. The Serbian domestic leaders only entered the competition in the previous round, and they made very light work of Pyunik. Zvezda were excellent in the first leg, as they ran out easy 5-0 winners in front of their home fans.

Osman Bukari scored an excellent hat-trick, while further goals were scored by Kings Kangwa and Stefan Mitrovic. Zvezda eased to victory in the second leg with a 2-0 success, with the goals being scored by Guelor Kanga and Milan Pavkov.

Maccabi Haifa vs Crvena Zvezda Head to Head

This will be an historic fixture in the Champions League, as it will be the first time that these two sides have met. However, Maccabi has only won once in four fixtures in Europe against teams from Serbia.

Maccabi Haifa vs Crvena Zvezda Prediction

This could be a tie that could go either way. However, Zvezka’s performances already in the competition this season could make them very dangerous opponents for Maccabi. Therefore, we could see the away side getting the victory in the first leg.
