M. Tel Aviv – Dinamo Brest will be played on Wednesday, September 16, starting with 20:00 in the Champions League qualifiers, and the winner will reach the playoffs, just one step away from the groups. It is noteworthy that this will be the first direct confrontation, will be played at Bloomfield Stadium in Tel Aviv and will be led from the center by the Italian Davide Massa.
Maccabi Tel Aviv :
The host team beat Riga FC 2-0 and Suduva 3-0 in the previous rounds. Therefore, M. Tel Aviv did not receive a goal in these two matches and we notice that the striker from Barbados, Nick Blackman, scored 3 times.
We highlight the fact that the team led by the Greek Georgios Donis did not start the new season very well in the internal competition. Maccabi collected only one point from the first two rounds and scored two goals in each match.
Dinamo Brest :
On the other hand, the guest team started in an impressive way the qualifications from the Champions League, winning 6-3 at home in the match with FC Astana and then 2-1 also “at home” with Sarajevo. Like its opponent, Dinamo Brest does not excel in the internal competition, where it occupies only the 9th place after 23 rounds and practically has only theoretical chances in the top 3. It should be noted that the team led by Sergey Kovalchuk scored 37 goals, having the 3rd offensive after the first two ranked Soligorsk and BATE Borisov.
According to the bookmakers, M. Tel Aviv has the first chance to win, but the defensive deficiencies shown by the host team in the first two matches played in the internal competition make us slightly precocious. In addition, Dinamo Brest showed strength in the offensive and there are good chances to see goals.
