On October 1, the last qualifying round of the Europa League will take place, in which Tottenham will host Maccabi Haifa, so there was a prediction. Will we see open play?
It is very difficult for the English club to win both the championship and European competitions, but the most important thing is that it scores points and moves on. Most recently, Jose Mourinho’s charges played in the English League Cup, where Chelsea were knocked out on penalties.
As for the Europa League, the team left Lokomotiv Plovdiv behind (2: 1), then replaced Skandia (3: 1) and advanced to the qualifying final, where Tottenham will face Maccabi Haifa.
Spurs are the clear favorite of this confrontation, plus the match will take place at the home arena, so the bookmakers have given this status to the hosts without any doubt. In short, we expect an attacking and dominant football from Hotspur.
The Israeli team leads the domestic championship, although it is too early to draw conclusions, because only two rounds have passed. The team is very serious, which we could see during the previous matches in the Europa League.
“Maikkabi” Haifa confidently passed “Zheleznichar” (3: 1), then showed class in a duel against “Kairat Almaty” (2: 1), and in the previous meeting gave a fight to “Rostov” (2: 1). The meeting took place at high speeds, the rivals were not afraid to take risks, but the Russian team was less fortunate.
Barak Bahar is preparing his guys for the most serious rival in this European competition, because everyone understands perfectly well what is the difference in class.
Tottenham are unbeaten in six matches.
Maccabi Haifa’s winning streak lasts five games.
In the last five matches with the participation of the Israeli club, the total of 2.5 goals has been broken five times.
Tottenham are ready to play in the group stage of the Europa League, which is noticeable in their games in European competitions, although we had to sweat a lot, but we all know perfectly well the wonderful tactician Jose Mourinho, who loves to PR and knows what he is doing.
A team that loves to attack comes to visit, especially in the last games the Maccabi Haifa team was just at their best, so it hardly makes sense for guests to sit out in defense and wait for their chance. In our opinion, we will see open football and at least three goals.
Our prediction – total over 2.5 goals for 1.65 odds in bookmaker Winline
