Europa League Sarpsborg 08 vs Maccabi Tel Aviv
Thursday evening at 20:05, Sarpsborg 08 will receive the visit to Maccabi Tel Aviv, in a game where I expect the host team to make a beautiful figure.
Sarpsborg 08 is ranked second in this game, as it was normal for her to face a better opponent, but she is advantaged by the fact that she will play in the field where she does not manage in general, supporters also often play an important role. The Norwegians are at their first European experience, and this has not been the case until now, judging by their course in this edition of the Europa League. Geir Bakke’s band has begun since the first round of the tournament, with Icelanders from IBV, in front of whom they beat 6-0 in general, Gallen, with the goal scored in the away, following a 2-1 victory in double hand in front of Rijeka, thus reaching play-off. As we mentioned, Sarpsborg is a rewarding team on the ground, in the last ten matches played on “Sarpsborg Stadion” losing only once, managing six wins and three draws.
Maccabi Tel Aviv on the other side is a slightly stronger but even more experienced team, who in this fight starts as a favorite, even if they play away. Israelis know what European competitions mean throughout their history playing in both the Champions League and the Europa League. The team coached by Vladimir Ivic, as well as his opponent, started from the first round of the preliminaries, playing first with Ferencvaros, who defeated 2-1 in general, then passed Radnicki with 4-2, following a success 2-1 in front of Armenians from Pyunik. Maccabi Tel Aviv is in good shape, being unbeaten this season, in the eight games so far winning five wins, draw three times.
Sarpsborg is a good team on his own, where he scores almost every game, and in this fight I expect to do it again, relying on the fact that he will be very motivated, considering that he has the chance to debut in the European competitions .
