Panathinaikos vs Maccabi Haifa: Top free betting tips

Can Maccabi stay alive in Europe? Our Panathinaikos vs Maccabi Haifa prediction is for an easy home win. 

Maccabi Haifa are winless in the group so far. Their only 2 points came from goalless draws and the Israelis are the lowest scoring team in Europe this season – only 1 goal in 5 group-stage matches. Yet, if they win now in Athens they will claim the third spot and move to the Conference League. Panathinaikos need only a point to be confirmed in third place but the proud Greek side will want to finish the group stage in style. 

Clean sheet prediction: Panathinaikos to keep a clean sheet

With our first Panathinaikos vs Maccabi Haifa prediction we back the hosts to keep a clean sheet. Maccabi scored just 1 goal in the 5 previous matches in the group. PAO kept clean sheets in 3 of their last 4 home games. They also secured a decisive shutdown earlier in the group when drawing 0-0 vs Maccabi. 

Total goals prediction: Odd

Panathinaikos saw 7 of their last 9 home games in the Europa League finish with an odd number of total goals in them. There were an odd amount of goals in 4 of Maccabi’s last 6 matches too. This is why our next Panathinaikos vs Maccabi Haifa prediction is for an odd number of total goals. 

​Correct score prediction: 3-0 to Panathinaikos

Our final Panathinaikos vs Maccabi Haifa prediction follows the logic from the above betting tips. We back PAO to win 3-0. Panathinaikos scored at least 3 goals in 3 of their last 4 home games. At the same time, 3 of Maccabi’s 4 defeats in Europe this season were with that exact 0-3 scoreline.

​​Maccabi fans answer FAQs about the game

How far will Maccabi's fans travel to Panathinaikos?

Due to safety concerns amid the ongoing situation regarding Israel and Gaza, there will be no away fans allowed to travel for this match. The Israeli government doesn’t advise its citizens to travel abroad at this very moment. At the same time, Panathinaikos feared hostility against any Israeli supporters and with the backing of the mayor of Athens and UEFA the hosts were allowed to close the grounds for away supporters. 

Panathinaikos vs Maccabi Haifa: Tickets

The sector for away supporters is set to stay empty, while all of the home tickets that had been allocated sold already. 

This means that for those of you who want to submerge in the amazing atmosphere created by Panathinaikos fans the only option is to look for resale tickets online or directly on the ground in Athens. 

We couldn’t find any resale tickets online but some might appear close to the game. We warn you to act with caution if you decide to buy resale tickets. Make sure you’re not purchasing a fake. 

Also, as is traditionally a few hours before the match people appear around the stadium with tickets, most often genuine but not always so be careful, that they sell for cash only.
