Salzburg is considered to be a clear favorite of the match with Maccabi, but whether the bulls will justify this status on September 22 – you will find the answer in the forecast. What to expect from teams?
Maccabi started their way in the Champions League qualification back in mid-August – the first rival was Riga. Without any problems, the team of Yorgos Donis knocked the Latvians out of the tournament, sending them two unanswered goals. “Suduva” got one more goal in the next round – the Yellows beat her away.
In the last round, Maccabi had a more serious rival, but there were no particular problems with him. The yellow players sent one goal to the gates of Brest Dynamo, but it was enough to pass.
Last season, Salzburg very easily won another league title – Jesse Marsh’s team had no equal in the Austrian championship, ahead of the second Rapid by 12 points. In the new season, the “bulls” have already played two league matches – in the first round with a score of 3: 1, Wolfsberger was defeated.
In the last round, “Salzburg” met with “Altach” and already in the sixth minute was in the minority, which did not prevent the “bulls” from winning 4: 1 and gaining a foothold in the first line in the table.
Maccabi played three matches in the Champions League qualification, in which they did not concede a single goal
Maccabi have suffered only one defeat in their last 20 home games in all competitions, with 13 victories.
Maccabi spent five of their last six home games to zero defensively
Salzburg made a lot of noise in the last Champions League, due to which they made a decent profit from transfers in the summer. Surely the “bulls” will strive to break into the group this season as well, in the class they are clearly superior to “Maccabi” and there is a high probability that they will eventually achieve their goal.
However, Maccabi is a serious rival at home – the Yellows are confident in defense, they are distinguished by high-quality implementation, it hardly makes sense to wait for a defeat.
We believe that the defeat will not happen. Forecast – Asian handicap (+2) at Maccabi . In 1xBet such an outcome is offered with odds of 1.60
