Maccabi score many goals at home, visitors also scored nine goals in four most recent away matches. Both clubs have a great offensive line, while defensive line is far from perfect. In our opinion, we will see a number of goal opportunities, some of them might be converted.
Our second bet is on total over 2.5 goals
