Maccabi Haifa are yet to play their first league match of the new campaign, but the competitive season did not start well for them, as The Greens lost on penalties to Hapoel Beer Sheva in the Super Cup. Maccabi Haifa caused a huge stir on the European stage as they first eliminated Olympiakos, beating them 4-0 (5-1 on aggregate) in Greece, and then they were better than Apollon Limassol 4-2 on aggregate. Meanwhile, Crvena Zvezda confirmed their great form ahead of the clash with Maccabi Haifa, as The Red-Whites keep their 100% record in the new season, beating Vozdovac 4-0 at the weekend. Namely, Crvena Zvezda grinds their opponents in the new competitive season, so Dejan Stanković's team easily eliminated the first obstacle, demolishing Pyunik from Armenia 7-0 on aggregate.

Maccabi Haifa vs Crvena Zvezda Betting Tips: BTTS

It will be the first head-to-head meeting between these teams, and given that it is difficult to predict the winner of the match in the first leg, we believe that both teams will be good enough in attack. Maccabi Haifa have not secured the UEFA Champions League group stage for more than a decade, but the team proved their ambitions and immense desire so far, demolishing Olympiakos 4-0 in Greece. Maccabi Haifa are aware that they face a tough opponent in the final qualifying round, but The Greens will adopt an attacking approach from the first minute, after they achieved a convincing 4-0 triumph over Apollon Limassol. Meanwhile, Crvena Zvezda look unstoppable in the new campaign, and their attack is dominant - best illustrated by the fact that The Red-Whites have won all seven games so far, scoring 28 goals in that time. So, both teams have a great desire to achieve a positive result in the first leg, so the attack of both teams should be at a high level.

Maccabi's biggest signing this summer - Frantzdy Pierrot proved his potential in the qualifying campaign, and he should be the biggest threat to Crvena Zvezda's defence.
