[banner][/banner]

Key Highlights

West Ham and Freiburg are both on 12 points after five rounds of fixtures. The clash on Thursday will be a shootout for the group’s top spot ahead of the knockout stages.  The two sides have won four matches and lost once. West Ham scored eight times and conceded four, whereas Freiburg have scored 17 times and conceded just five. However, the Premier League side has a better head-to-head record and thus has the edge on the table. Whoever wins the match on Thursday will qualify at the top, relegating the other to second spot. [news_button][/news_button] David Moyes’ side will look to play on the front foot in front of the home fans. However, they will know that playing against Freiburg will not be easy, given their prolific record in the final third. Freiburg will look to be tactical by controlling the game, pressing, and counter-pressing to launch attacks and pose a threat in the final third.

Injury Report

David Moyes will be without center-forward Michail Antonio for the clash against Freiburg. The striker is nursing a knee injury and is unlikely to be available on Thursday. Freiburg has a longer injury list, including Daniel-Kofi Kyere, Max Rosenfelder, Christian Gunter, Maximilian Philipp, Yannik Keitel, Lukas Kubler, and Kenneth Schmidt.

Prediction

West Ham will have the home advantage; they will win and top the group heading into the knockout stages. Make sure to bet on West Ham United vs SC Freiburg with 22Bet!

Europa League Preview 

There will be a huge clash in the Europa League on Wednesday, as the rearranged clash between Villarreal and Maccabi Haifa takes place. The pressure will be on the home side, as Villarreal look to land maximum points which would see them join Rennes on 12 points at the top of the standings. Only a victory will keep them in a fight for an automatic spot in the next round of the competition. 

Meanwhile, Maccabi Haifa will be looking to upset the odds this week, as they are yet to land a victory in four outings in the Europa League. Their performances to this point mean that they sit bottom of the Group F standings, but a positive result in Spain could see them re-enter the race to finish third in the table.

Bet here 

Villarreal holds the advantage coming into this showdown, as they have lost just once in their 14 group stage fixtures in the Europa League. However, their only defeat over that period was suffered on matchday one against Panathinaikos. But, they haven’t lost more than once in a group stage campaign in the Europa League since 2010-11. 

A concerning trend to consider before this fixture on Wednesday is the fact that Maccabi Haifa are winless in their last 20 away matches in European competitions. Over that period, they have suffered defeats in each of their last nine. In fact, their most recent away win in Europe was achieved against Litex Lovech in September 2006. 

Villarreal vs Maccabi Haifa Head to Head 

Villarreal have suffered just one defeat in six previous matches against clubs from Israel. However, this will be their first showdown against Maccabi Haifa. The visitors haven’t scored a goal in four previous matches against Spanish opposition. 

Villarreal vs Maccabi Haifa Prediction 

The odds seem to be stacked against Maccabi Haifa this week. We struggle to overlook Villarreal’s impressive record in the group stage of the Europa League, and we fully expect them to claim victory by at least a two-goal margin on Wednesday.
