Domestically both sides head into this match in good form with Maccabi Haifa sitting in second position in the Israeli League and Union Berlin 5th in the Bundesliga. However in the Europa Conference League both sides have struggled. Union have lost three of their four matches with Maccabi losing two, winning one and drawing one of their four games so far. The Bundesliga is obviously a stronger league than its Israeli counterpart and when these sides last met earlier in the competition it was Union who ran out comfortable 3-0 winners. Despite their struggles in this completion we will back the German side to edge what could be a very tight game.
Both teams to score
In games involving Union Berlin domestically the goals have been flying in, with both teams finding the back of the net in 6 of their last seven games. Things have been a little more serene for Maccabi with both teams scoring only once in their last five games. This match sees the group’s lowest scorers in Maccabi take on the group’s worst defence in Union Berlin, this could be a tight game but both teams need to win, so for that reason we will back both sides to find the back of the net here.
Over 2.5 goals
Within the group stage, every match that Union have played in has seen the over 2.5 goal mark exceeded. Maccabi have kept things tighter with the only game that has seen over 2.5 goals being exceeded being the last match they played against Union Berlin. Four of Union’s last five away matches have all seen the 2.5 goal market being surpassed, with only one of Maccabi’s last five home games seeing the 2.5 total exceeded. Something has to give here and we are going to back the over 2.5 market here in what we hope will be an open contest.
