Haifa are the reigning champions of the prestigious Israeli top flight, and had also won the first leg. Meanwhile, Tbilisi are from the comparatively weaker Georgian Erovnuli, and they are also going through a poor run. Likely, expect a win for Maccabi Haifa.
They had secured the title the last season in Israel in style. They had scored the most number of goals of all the teams in the competition (52 goals from 26 games), and also had conceded the least.
They are also on a great run at the moment, and especially so at home.
In the meantime, Tbilisi are going through a losing stretch at the moment, and are conceding in plenty. They are also on the road, and they are forced to go after goals right from the get-go in this second leg, as they are trailing in aggregate.
As such, expect a win for Haifa this Thursday.
Haifa were unbeaten in 22 of their last 25 overall fixtures, and they had scored two or more goals in 17 of these match-ups. They have also lost just once at home since August of 2020, and in the process they had gone on a ten-game winning streak.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a four-fixture losing run, and each of these games had ended in 2-1 losses for them. Note that they had also lost five of their past eight road trips.
Taking into account these observations, along with their win in the first leg, expect a win for Haifa this Thursday at the Sammy Ofer Stadium.
