PSG will be confident of maintaining their winning form when they take on Maccabi Haifa at the Sammy Ofer Stadium for the 2nd round of fixtures in Champions League Group H.

The Parisiens arrive in Israel having enjoyed an excellent start to the new campaign with 8 wins and just 1 draw from 9 matches completed in all competitions, including a 2:1 against Juventus on match-day one. 

Hosts Maccabi have also produced a strong opening to their season, having come through three rounds of qualifying to make it to the Champions League group stages for the first time since 2009 however they suffered a 2:0 loss at Benfica last week. 

Maccabi Haifa vs PSG Betting Tips: Away/Over 2.5

While Maccabi went down to a hard-fought loss at Benfica on match-day one, their form in this tournament has been impressive, with the Israelis causing an upset or two to eliminate Olympiakos, Apollon and Red Star Belgrade in CL qualifying. 

On their own patch, Maccabi are not to be underestimated, having lost just 1 of their last 28 matches, even against star-studded opposition in the shape of PSG, who edged to a narrow 1:0 win at home to Brest as they look to maintain the pressure on early pace-setters Lens. 

Indeed, Maccabi might take some comfort in knowing that PSG have failed to win any of their last 5 away CL matches while the hosts have won 2 and drawn 1 of their 3 home UCL matches this season against the aforementioned teams from Greece, Cyprus and Serbia.

Of course, PSG are a significant step-up in class, and while it would be a massive surprise for Maccabi to take anything from this fixture, we expect PSG to have to work for their expected victory. 

On the road, PSG are not often at their best in this tournament, particularly from a defensive perspective, with just 2 clean sheets in their last 13 away matches, suggesting Maccabi can find their way towards the visitor's goal.

Still, we expect PSG´s class to carry them towards another victory and while we expect the hosts to trouble the Parisiens, an away victory with over 2.5 goals scored seems the likeliest outcome, and for those of a braver deposition, a PSG and BTTS double could also yield a positive return.
