The joy of the Europa Conference League is that it provides an opportunity for teams from smaller footballing nations to compete in elite level European competitions. The competition is perhaps best summed up by a team from Finland taking on a team from Israel.
Maccabi Tel Aviv head into this match top of the Group with four points from the 6 available to them, with HJK just behind them in third place on three points. Both of these teams come into this game in some pretty poor form with HJK winnng two of their last five with Tel Aviv having done the same.
Tel Aviv head into the game as slight favourites but this on paper looks like a match that could go either way. The smart money could be the draw, it would be a result that would set up the remaining three games for each team nicely.
Both teams to score
This is a match up between the two highest scorers in Group A. HJK have scored four whilst Tel Aviv have scored five. Neither team is yet to keep a clean sheet in the competition and we think both teams to score could be the play here.
Over 2.5 goals
In the two group games that these sides have played both have had one game where the over 2.5 goal barrier was exceeded and one where it wasn’t. In their last six games HJK have seen 50% of their games exceed 2.5 goals whereas Tel Aviv has only seen it happen twice. In what could be a stalemate of a game we are backing the under 2.5 goal market here.
