Young Boys Draw No Bet

Reason for tip

The visitors should be expected to progress from this tie against a Maccabi side who have failed to keep a clean sheet across their last five Champions League games this term, conceding to opponents from Malta, Moldova and Slovakia. Meanwhile, Young Boys have won 10 of their last 13 European qualifiers, drawing two and winning each of their three away qualifiers in Europe last season.

Maccabi Haifa vs Young Boys Predictions

  • Maccabi have made their way through each round of qualifying, but they’ve gone five games without a clean sheet
  • Young Boys won all three of their away qualifiers in Europe last summer
  • The visitors have won 10 and drawn two of their last 13 qualifiers

Maccabi battle to final hurdle

Maccabi Haifa are bidding to return to the Champions League group stages after taking on the likes of Juventus, Benfica and PSG last term. They’ve had to run the gauntlet to put themselves on the verge of a group stage return, battling through from the first round of qualifying.

Maccabi opened against Maltese side Hamrun Spartans, Sheriff of Moldova and Slovakia’s Slovan Bratislava. Not they face their biggest test, a Young Boys side who enter the competition at this stage. The Swiss side coasted to the title last term and they are hoping to return to the group stage for the first time since 2021.

Visitors can get in front

As great as Maccabi Haifa’s run has been, Young Boys should have an edge as the higher-seeded side. The hosts have conceded in each of their last five matches in this competition despite facing weaker sides, so the visitors can cause some problems.

While Young Boys are returning to this competition for the first time since 2021, last season they featured in the Europa Conference League qualifiers, winning five of their six games to nil before going out on penalties. That includes wins in each of their away trips, so they should be confident about getting ahead in this first leg.

Young Boys didn’t lose across their six qualifying games on their way to the 2021/22 Champions League either, including a 3-2 win at Ferencvaros in at this stage. They should have the edge over Maccabi and with 10 wins and two draws from their last 13 qualifying games in Europe, they’re great value on the Draw No Bet market.
