Maccabi Tel Aviv vs Villarreal
UEFA Europa League
Date: 28th September 2017
Kick off at 20:05 UK/ 21:05 CET
Venue: Winner Stadium.
Maccabi Tel Aviv could not do much to avoid a defeat at Eden Arena in Prague two weeks ago when Necid’s goal made all the difference (1-0).
The Israeli squad will now have an even tougher challenge as Spanish Villarreal are set to arrive at Winner Stadium for the second round match on Thursday evening.
Maccabi Tel Aviv
The defeat would likely ruin Maccabi’s hopes of making it to the knockout phase of the competition and there are no doubts Jordi Cruijff’s men will be highly motivated to get a result here.
Icelandic forward Vidar Orn Kjartansson is Maccabi’s main weapon in the final third. He bagged three goals in last four matches and he might be a good shout for the anytime goalscorer pick here at the odds of 21/10.
El Submarino Amarillo have been playing hot and cold since the start of the season in Primera Division.
The catastrophic 4-0 defeat to Getafe last weekend caused the change on the bench as the former Villarreal U23 head coach Javi Valleja took charge of the first team and the clash with Maccabi Tel Aviv will actually be his debut.

This is going to be the first ever H2H encounter between these two sides.
Maccabi Tel Aviv vs Villarreal: Prediction
It will be very interesting to see how Villarreal will react after an embarrassing defeat to Getafe.
We somehow can’t see them keeping their net untouched after allowing as many as four goals at the weekend and we’ll back the BTTS as the best of the betting options for this one.
