Slovan Bratislava vs Maccabi Haifa match preview

Who will move one step closer to Champions League qualification?

ŠK Slovan Bratislava returned to big-time European football in 2019, reaching the Europa League group stages, before also featuring in the Europa Conference League group phase in each of the last two seasons.

Now, the five-in-a-row champions of Slovakia are desperate to break into the Champions League group phase for the very first time.

So far this season, Vladimír Weiss’ side have overcome both Swift Hesperange and then HŠK Zrinjski Mostar.

In the latter, they actually avoided a bit of a scare, leading 3-0 on aggregate, before two late goals from Zrinjski set up a grand-stand finish in Bratislava.

Nevertheless, the Sky Blues did get through, thereby guaranteeing they’ll feature in a UEFA group stage again this season, so can Slovan make home advantage count at Tehelné pole?

Maccabi Haifa meantime did get all the way to the Champions League group phase just last season, achieving this for the first time since 2009, notably knocking out Olympiacos and Crvena zvezda en route.

So far this season, the Israeli champions have smashed Ħamrun Spartans 6-1, before a dramatic comeback victory over FC Sheriff Tiraspol.

Having lost the first leg in Transnistria, the Greens then came from behind to win 2-1 at Sammy Ofer Stadium, forcing extra time, during which Dean David and Erik Shuranov were on target to complete the turnaround.

So, Maccabi are guaranteed a spot in a group phase for a third consecutive season, but in which competition will this be?

The winners of this tie will take on BSC Young Boys in the UEFA Champions League play-off round.

The losers drop into the UEFA Europa League play-offs, where they’ll face the losers of Raków Częstochowa vs Aris Limassol.
