Match preview

Having won the first leg at Sammy Ofer Stadium in some style, safe to Maccabi Haifa are in pole position to get through this tie.

Six nights ago, an own goal from Mathieu Peybernes, a brace by Ali Mohamed and then a late clincher from Frantzdy Pierrot saw the Israeli champions run out 4-0 winners.

So, ahead of their trip to Cyprus, the Greens can surely start planning for the next round.

Last season, Maccabi Haifa retained their Israeli Premier League title, having not been champions for a decade before this.

In Europe, the Greens featured in the Europa Conference League group phase last season, but haven’t qualified for the Champions League proper since 2009.

Assuming Barak Bakhar’s team don’t collapse in this second leg, they’ll face Crvena zvezda in next mid-weeks play-off round.

Apollon Limassol meanwhile have surely started planning for a Europa League play-off tie against Olympiacos or ŠK Slovan Bratislava.

The Cypriot champions have qualified for four Europa League group phases since 2013, but their hopes of a first Champions League appearance were all but extinguished in the first leg.

Will GSP Stadium witness a comeback for the ages? Probably not no.
