Our prediction for this Champions League match:
There will be fireworks when Slovan Bratislava and Maccabi Haifa face each other in a highly-anticipated Champions League qualifier. Slovan Bratislava booked their place in the third qualifying round by beating Zrinjski in the double-header, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against the Israelis. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of the first leg.
The Greens, on the other hand, proved their worth in the come-from-behind triumph over Sheriff Tiraspol and given their attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visiting side. Despite failing to find the net in the 4-1 win over Sheriff, a man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Haiti forward Frantzdy Pierrot. It has to be noted that the two teams meet for the first time in the elite competition.
Highlighted Player (Tjaronn Chery):
Tjaronn Chery is a pacey winger who is well known for his brilliant crosses. Chery impressed with Groningen in the 2014/2015 Eredivisie campaign and, as a result, QPR owners decided to sign him. The Dutch footballer was born in Hague on 4 June, 1988, but he has yet to make his debut for the Oranje.
Nonetheless, you should bear in mind that he was called up to the Netherlands squad in May, 2015. He used to play for the likes of Den Haag, Emmen, Roosendaal, Cambuur and Twente in the past, but no doubt, he was producing the best performances during his spell with Groningen.
Chery scored ten goals for Queens Park Rangers in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and he was named Players’ Player of the Year. He is capable of playing on both wings, but he plays as an attacking midfielder as well. Tjaronn Chery has a deal with QPR which expires on 30 June, 2018. He is a left-footed player.
