Our prediction for this Champions League match:
After crushing Olympiakos in Piraeus 4-0, Maccabi Haifa will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they welcome Apollon to their Sammy Ofer Stadium on Wednesday evening. The Greens did well to shock the Thrylos in round 2, and it should come as no surprise the bookies see them as favourites to beat Apollon on home soil. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Haiti international Frantzdy Pierrot, who scored a brace in the triumph over Olympiakos.
The Cypriotes, on the other hand, were anything but impressive in pre-season, with the team losing to all Doxa, Torino, and Liberec, while sharing the spoils with Mezokovesd-Zsory, and given their shaky defence, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. The two clubs have never met before in the elite competition.
