Slavia Prague hosts Maccabi Tel Aviv at the Eden Arena on a Europa League’s group stage match.
Looking at their most recent signings and the team Slavia has set up, it is clear that the team’s objective was to reach the Champions League. Now, Slavia might be one of the pleasant surprises on this Europa League.
The team has brought in some interesting and veteran reinforcements for this season, with the highlights being the Portuguese Danny and the Turkish Halil Altintop.
On the Champions League, the team reached the play-off but then they got knocked out against APOEL, after having beaten BATE Borisov in the previous stage.
On the Czech league, the team isn’t doing poorly, and they currently sit in 2nd place after 3 wins and 3 draws, but they are 6 points behind the leaders Plzen.

Slavia Prague vs Maccabi Tel Aviv – Betting Tip and Prediction:
This won’t be exactly Maccabi Tel Aviv’s debut on the Europa League this season. The team has already played 8 matches in the qualifying stage of the tournament before reaching this group stage. And the team did very well so far, with 7 wins and 1 draw in those matches. The Israeli club has eliminated Tirana, Reykjavik, Panionios and, in the play-off, Rheindorf Altach.
The Israeli championship has barely started so we can’t take many conclusions. The team has played 3 matches, winning 2 and losing 1.
I’ll trust in the quality of the players Slavia has brought this season combined with the home advantage. We’re obviously talking about a duel between two teams who will fight to qualify for the next round.
But I think that Slavia Prague’s current odds have value.
