Hapoel Beer Sheva vs Maribor Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Maribor will be looking to extend their unbeaten streak in this season’s Champions League when they travel to the Yaakov Turner Toto Stadium to take on Hapoel Beer Sheva on Wednesday night for the first leg of their Champions League play-off tie. Hapoel Beer Sheva head into this tie high on confidence following their 2-4 win over Yehuda in the Israeli Super Cup last Thursday thanks to goals from Mohammad Ghadir, Tomas Pekhart, Loai Taha and Anthony Nwakaeme. On the flip side, Maribor only managed a nil-nil home draw against Domzale in the Prva liga at the weekend. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Although both sides have enjoyed a good run of form recently, I think that Maribor have more quality within their side and they are also more experienced in the European competitions. Furthermore, Maribor have scored at least two goals in three of their last four away games across all competitions. I’m backing Maribor to register at least one draw on Wednesday night.

Hapoel Beer Sheva Preview

Hapoel Beer Sheva have won the second Ligat ha’Al title in a row last year with 13 more points than the runner-ups and eternal rivals Maccabi Tel Aviv. The new Ligat ha’Al season will kick off next weekend, but Hapoel have already played a couple of competitive games. They managed a comfortable 5-3 aggregate win over Honved in the Champions League second qualifying round but had a difficult task against Ludogorets in the previous round. The Israeli side won 2-0 at home in the first leg and travelled to Bulgaria high on confidence. However, they were three goals down after 56 minutes, only for a Mohammad Ghadir goal to prove decisive as they qualified further in the competition due to the away-goal rule. This is Hapoel’s second Champions League campaign, and they will be looking to reach the group stage of the competition now after they lost 5-4 on aggregate at the hands of Celtic in the play-offs last year. Hapoel Beer Sheva enter the fray on the back of a 0-2 win over Moadon Sport Ashdod in the Israeli Toto Cup and a comfortable 2-4 win against Yehuda in the Israeli Super Cup. In terms of transfers, Beer Sheva only brought in three players in the shape of Isaac Cuenca, Dan Einbinder and Tomas Pekhart, all on free transfers.

Hapoel Beer Sheva Team News

There are no fresh injury concerns for Hapoel Beer Sheva ahead of this clash.

Maribor Preview

Maribor have also enjoyed an excellent run of form recently, winning seven and drawing two of their last nine games across all competitions. Maribor have won four and drawn once in their opening five Prva liga fixtures, conceding just three goals in this term. They currently sit in second in the Prva liga table tied on points with the current leaders NK Olimpija Ljubljana. Regarding their current Champions League campaign, the Slovenians beat Maribor 3-2 on aggregate in the second qualifying round and followed this 2-0 aggregate victory over Hafnarfjordur in the third round. Maribor will be looking to reach the group stage of the competition for a third time, having previously competed in 1999/2000 and 2014/15. Last year, Maribor beat the likes of Levski Sofia and Aberdeen FC before losing at the hands of Gabala in the Europa League play-offs. Maribor can count on their recent away form as they have won the last four away games across all competitions, including back-to-back victories over Zrinjski and Hafnarfjordur in the Champions League. Prior to these wins, Maribor were on a four-game winless streak on the road in the Champions League.

Maribor Team News

Amir Dervisevic is the only doubtful player for Maribor ahead of this trip.
