Maccabi Tel Aviv face Pandurii at Netanya Stadium in the second leg of the third qualifying round of the Europa League. Israeli side managed to secure 3:1 away victory in the first match.
Maccabi Tel Aviv surprisingly lost championship race last season so now they had to play in the Europa League qualification. On top of that, Israeli side proved they are team of rather high level as they did not face a single decent opponent so far. Let’s recall, first Maccabi beat Gorica in the first qualifying round (4:0), then outplayed Kazakhstani Kairat in the second one (3:2). Now they have almost secured their place in the next round as they beat Pandurii 3:1 on the road. On top of that, Maccabi are currently on 15-game undefeated streak at home ground (13 wins, 2 draws).

Pandurii in their turn managed to win bronze medals of the Romania Liga 1 last season mostly due to impressive run at the end. However, as they first leg showed Romanian side weren’t ready to play in the eurocups. Although it was close contest, Pandurii failed to convert their chances into goals, unlike their opponents. However, we should say that statistically Pandurii have some chances to proceed to the next round as they are on 7-game away undefeated streak.
Maccabi earned solid advantage in the first leg and all they need to do is to shut home game down and easily advance to the playoff round of the Europa League.
Prediction for the match: Over 2 goals.
