Maccabi Haifa is looking ahead to the new season after missing every single trophy in the previous one.
Club legend Reuven Atar was appointed as head coach and a special emulation was noted, especially among their fans. They have some interesting players in the squad, like talented Golasa or Cohen and Amasha and they are a deadly team on counters, after what was already noticed in the past Europa league season. They started the preparations with a 1-0 win against Pribram and a 1-2 loss against Botev Plovdiv.
Besiktas is also a team in reconstruction, getting rid of many overpaid “stars” and trying to focus on local talents. They have already played against Austria Klagenfurt this summer, winning 4-2 and now they are already in their second preparation camp, where they have scheduled 2 friendly games. They’ve lost against Manchester City (0-2) but their performance was a good one, the final result not being eloquent for what happened on the pitch.
These teams are both in reconstruction but we should still have a pleasant game. Both are attacking minded sides and their defenses are quite shaky. Since this is a friendly game, I believe the players won’t risk any injuries and they will try to put in practice what was learned during their long training sessions. I believe there are chances to see some goals and a bet on over 2,5 goals can be tried.
