Football prediction betting tips for Maccabi Tel Aviv – Villareal
Maccabi Tel Aviv faces Villarreal in Tel-Aviv in a match from Group I of Europa League. Here we are going to preview it in our football prediction betting tips today. Let’s get to work.
Maccabi and Villarreal are the two teams which lead the standings in the group so far. The Spanish team is enjoying a perfect record of 9 points so far while the Israeli side is second with 6 points. Right now Maccabi have just three points advantage over the third Sivasspor, so the Israeli team really needs to get some points on Thursday.
Two weeks ago these two teams met at the Estadio de la Ceramica in Villarreal. The Yellow Submarine didn’t face any trouble and crushed the Israeli team with 4-0. The veteran striker Carlos Bacca scored twice while Alex Baena and Fer Nino scored as well.
Usually Villarreal’s manager Unai Emery is resting some of his key players in Europa League, but so far it’s not troubling the team at any away. The Yellow Submarine is winning and it’s the most important thing.
Maccabi Tel Aviv don’t have any other choice, but to regroup after the bad defeat on Spanish soil. Like we said – Sivasspor are just three points behind, so for Maccabi it would be good to get at least a point tomorrow.
During the weekend Villarreal took a point off Real Madrid’s hands with a 1-1 draw at the Estadio de la Ceramica. Meanwhile Maccabi Tel Aviv achieved a 1-0 win away from home against Hapoel Hadera.
That’s our football prediction betting tips today for the Europa League fixture between Maccabi Tel Aviv and Villarreal on Thursday. A win here would officially send the Spaniards to the knockout phase which is their goal at the moment. But Maccabi can’t just let themselves lose – they will fight.
