In the UEFA Champions League play-off qualifying match, Maccabi Tel Aviv will look for a surprise at home against Salzburg. The match will start at 20:00.
Maccabi Tel Aviv:
Maccabi Tel Aviv, who finished last season as champion in the Israeli League, joined the UEFA Champions League from the 1st qualifying round. In the 1st qualifying round Latvia’s Riga FC team was 2-0, in the 2nd qualifying round Lithuanian representative Suduva 3-0 away and finally in the 3rd qualifying round Belarus’s Dinamo Brest team beat the play off with 1-0. The Israeli representative who managed to stay on his tour will meet Salzburg this evening. Obviously, Maccabi Tel Aviv’s job will be much more difficult this time compared to the remaining 3 tours.
As we know, Salzburg is one of the teams that has attracted attention especially in Europe in recent years. We can say that Salzburg is a football player factory. In the last 2 seasons, they sent two important strikers, first Haaland and then Hee Chan Hwang, to the Bundesliga. Having won the championship in the Austrian League last season, Salzburg started the new season very well and reached the lead by collecting 6 points in the first 2 weeks. Last week, they passed Altach 4-1 in the home field. Sazlburg, which will face Maccabi Tel Aviv in the UEFA Champions League play off round, is shown as the favorite of the tour.
Salzburg’s squad quality is 2-3 shirts superior to Maccabi Tel Aviv. I think the Austrian representative will win the tour.
