Crvena Zvezda will face Maccabi on the road in the first match of the Champions League playoff round. How will the game end? Our sports portal gives a forecast for the meeting.
Over the past couple of months, the Haifa club has missed out on two trophies. First, the team lost in the final of the Israeli Cup, and then lost the match of the Super Cup of the country. In both cases, we lost to Hapoel on penalties. But in the Champions League qualification, the Israeli champion is doing great. First, Maccabi knocked out the Greek Olympiacos, defeating the opponent on the road with a score of 4:0. After that, the Israeli club coped with the champion of Cyprus — Maccabi beat Apollo (4-0) at home, and then lost on the island with a score of 0:2.
The Serbian champion performs excellently at the start of the new season. The club from Belgrade dealt with Pyunik without any problems in the Champions League qualification — two wins with a total score of 7:0. And in the championship, Crvena Zvezda did not lose a single point in five matches. Now the team is leading the table, ahead of the nearest pursuer by two points. In the last match in the championship, the wards of Dejan Stankovich smashed "Vozhdovac" — 4:0 on their field. Earlier, "Crvena" acquired a young Russian Egor Prutsev, but he did not get into the application for the last game.
