Having overcome Slovan Bratislava in the previous round, it comes down to a straight hit against Swiss giants Young Boys for Maccabi Haifa, as they look to secure their place in the 2023/24 Champions League.

Whilst the regular season in Israel is still to get underway, Maccabi are looking to build momentum for a busy campaign ahead and they will be amongst the favourites with FanDuel Sportsbook to retain their Israeli Premier League title.

However, it is in Europe that Maccabi will be looking to further their ambitions under manager Messay Dego, with a win over two legs here guaranteeing them a spot at the top table of European football.

Standing in their way are Young Boys, a side that have picked up some impressive results across all three European competitions in recent seasons and they have plenty of big game knowhow too.

Maccabi Haifa

Building on last season’s impressive showing in the Champions League remains the ultimate aim for Maccabi Haifa and they are very much on course to do so.

Whilst they ultimately came up short in a tough group alongside PSG, Benfica, and Juventus there were glimmers of positivity, and they will be feeling confident of at least reaching that stage again this season.

The likes of Flamrun Spartans, Sheriff Tiraspol and Slovan Bratislava have been seen off with relative ease, leaving Maccabi on the cusp of Champions League qualification once more.

Young Boys

In a very similar vein, Young Boys will be seeking to emulate their excellent Champions League run from the 2021/22 season and they know a win over Maccabi Haifa here will propel them back into the big time.

By virtue of winning the Swiss league last season, Young Boys have entered straight into the Champions League playoff round this term.

They will be eager to stay in the contest after the 1st leg in Israel, then attempt to apply some pressure in front of their raucous home fans in Switzerland.

Probable Lineups

Maccabi Haifa: Nitzan, Sundgren, Seck, Goldberg, Cornud, Khalaili, Mohamed, Jaber, Refaelov, Chery, Pierrot.

Young Boys: Racioppi, Janko, Camara, Amenda, Benito, Chaiwa, Lakomy, Ugrinic, Monteiro, Itten, Imeri.
