Maccabi Haifa coach Elisha Levy believes his team has a strong chance of reaching the group stages of this season’s Champions League after being drawn against five-time Austrian league winners Red Bull Salzburg in the knockout round.
Having squeezed through the third qualifying round, courtesy of a 4-3 win over FC Aktobe, Haifa will have home advantage in the second leg.
“I think we have a good chance of advancing,” said Levy. “It’s an advantage to be playing the second leg at home. We will give our all to reach the group stage.”
