Matchday Previews and Analysis

Maccabi Haifa vs Olympiacos Piraeus

This quarter-final draw is one of the harshest in the field and it pits two dominant domestic clubs against each other for a spot to advance into the semi-finals of qualification.

Maccabi Haifa are one of the best teams in Europe historically although the past few seasons have produced some disappointing results.

Their ability is not in question, though, and they are going to be motivated to face their continental rivals in Greece.

Dominating teams from the front, Haifa have a great set of attackers and their depth runs through the squad.

Olympiacos is a household name in European soccer and has been on the map for decades.

The talent which they attract is the top in Greece, oftentimes leaving for bigger clubs to win better trophies.

This draw is cruel for both sides, but Olympiacos can absolutely overpower teams with their physicality while also being crafty in the midfield when it comes to passing and dribbling.

Prediction - Olympiacos to win

Dynamo Kyiv vs Fenerbahce

Dynamo Kyiv does not have the best situation heading into these CL Qualifiers as their home stadium is currently not able to play in, due to the conditions in their country now.

A very sad circumstance, they have done well to get this far and hope to make a run to another Champions League group stage.

They will be hard-pressed in this tie as they practically do not exactly have a “home” game, which will hinder them.

Fenerbahce have an opportunity to make history in Turkey by advancing to another round of Champions League qualifiers.

Their advantage is pencilled in with the neutral home stadium from Kyiv which means there are opportunities in both legs for the Turkish team.

They have an all-around solid squad and will come to play when the time comes, while finishing is not a problem for these guys, who are as clinical as any team.

Prediction - Fenerbahce to win.
