Maccabi Haifa hosts Sheriff at the Sammy Ofer Stadium in Haifa in a match from the second round of the Champions League qualifiers. This is a second leg between these two teams. The first match ended with a 1-0 win for the Moldovian team. Let’s preview it with our mastering football asian handicap betting guide.
The first leg in Tiraspol allowed Sheriff to take an important advantage. The only goal in the game was scored by Mohamed Amine Talal after 28 minutes of playing. He executed an assist from Armel Zohouri and put the ball in the net. In the second half Maccabi tried their best to equalise, but Sheriff’s defensive performance was good enough to avoid conceding a goal.
The season in Israel will start in August, so Maccabi Haifa didn’t have a game during the weekend. This means that they should be as fresh as possible for the second leg against Sheriff. This could give them some advantage.
It’s the same for Sheriff because the Moldovian league is about to start as well. Now both teams can’t be affected by lack of freshness. This should give us a proper second leg in Haifa on Wednesday.
The Haitian striker Frantzdy Pierrot remains one of the most dangerous players in Maccabi’s squad. He didn’t score in the first leg in Moldova, but now the 28-years old attacker will have the chance to show how good he is. Sheriff’s defense have to be careful with him.
Meanwhile Sheriff will try to use the attacking talents of players like Mbekeli and Luvannor while Joao Paulo and Amine Talal attack on the wings. These four players can be the key for Sheriff to reach the third round of qualification.
