Forecast Olympiacos — Maccabi Haifa in the Champions League qualifier

On Wednesday 27 July, Olympiacos Greece will take on Maccabi Haifa at Karaiskakis Field in the return leg of the Champions League quarter-final. The hosts will delight their fans with a win and qualify for the next round. For full statistics and odds for the match, look at


Olympiacos started their Champions League qualifying campaign with a 1-1 draw away to Maccabi Haifa. This came after a disappointing pre-season in which the Red and White scored just two wins in eight friendlies. The team are now back at home, where they have not lost in their last 10 games. The only exception was a 2-1 defeat to Panathinaikos in May.

The hosts will be without 23-year-old striker Nikola Kumic, who has been out since May due to a muscular injury. Olympiacos won the national championship once again in May, scoring 83 points in 36 rounds.

Maccabi Haifa

Maccabi Haifa have not won any of their last five matches, starting with a 4-0 victory over Maccabi Netanya on 21 May. The Israeli team have also lost their last four away games in all competitions, scoring twice and conceding five goals in that time. The visitors were recently defeated on penalties by Hapoel Be’er Sheva in Israel’s Super Cup after a 1-1 draw after 120 minutes of play.

Mahmoud Jaber, Raz Meir and Ben Sahar are recovering from injuries and will not appear on the pitch on Wednesday. The Black and Green won the championship in May this year with 78 points in 36 rounds. They scored 79 goals and conceded 27.

Opposite meetings

This will be the third meeting between the teams. In that time, Maccabi Haifa have had one win, and two times it has ended in a World Cup. The game a week ago did not please the fans with a 0-0 scoreline.

Maccabi Haifa vs Olympiacos

Having held on to an away draw, Olympiacos will be hoping to take the upper hand in front of their fans. In Piraeus, the Red and White are without a defeat in 10 of their last 11 matches. “Maccabi are significantly weaker than the Greeks in terms of selection and Eurocup experience. The Israelis will try to close down in defensive depth, but performers such as Yann Mwila, Giorgos Masuras, Tequinho Soares and Mathieu Valbuena have the skill to score a couple of goals. I predict that the home side will win a convincing win.
