Maccabi Haifa Preview
Maccabi Haifa began its participation in the UEFA Champions League during the qualifying stage, so before making its debut in the group stage it had already played six matches, winning three, drawing two and losing one. The Israeli team was unable to continue its good form in Matchday 1 as it lost 2-0 to Benfica.
This is their first home game in Group H, and they intend to make the most of it. They will, however, face a challenging opponent, one of the favorites to advance as the group’s top squad.
Absences: No report.
Probable lineup: Josh Cohen; Daniel Sundgren, Dylan Batubinsika, Abdoulaye Seck, Shon Goldberg; Tjaronn Chery, Maor Levi, Ali Mohamed; Dean David, Frantzdy Pierrot, Dolev Haziza.
Lionel Messi, Neymar, Kylian Mbappé and company come into this match unbeaten in both Ligue 1 and the Champions League in this 2022-23 season, with a combined unbeaten record of eight matches in these competitions.
PSG kicked off this new edition of Europe’s top club competition with a 2-1 win over Juventus, with Mbappé scoring both goals.
There is no previous record against this opponent, but based on what both teams showed in their first matches, this is an important opportunity for the Parisian team to get three points and take over first place in the group.
Absences: No report.
Probable lineup: Gianluigi Donnarumma; Achraf Hakimi, Sergio Ramos, Marquinhos, Presnel Kimpembe, Nuno Mendes; Marco Verratti, Vitinha; Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappé, Neymar.
Despite the fact that the match will be played on Israeli land, PSG is anticipated to win by a large margin due to roster and, more importantly, performance differences.
Prediction: PSG win 4-0.
