Maccabi Tel Aviv will go up tomorrow (Wednesday, 22:00) to one of its most important games in recent years, when it needs a miracle to reciprocate the 2: 1 home game against Red Bull Salzburg, and qualify for the home stage of the Champions League for the first time since the 2015/16 season .
The Israeli champion will have to do this with a very short staff, as 11 of its players contracted in Corona and did not go with the team to Austria. Coach Giorgos Donis spoke tonight ahead of the important game in the Champions League playoffs tomorrow.
“The last two weeks have been tough, we fought to get to the playoffs,” the coach said, “We are missing seven key players and 11 in total. Ten of those players have been on the roster in the last few games. A united group and I am proud of everyone for the way we are dealing with the situation. “
Donis continued: “I do not believe in miracles, I believe in work. We must not think about what happened in the previous game, we must go on the field, fight and win every ball, and win the game. Salzburg is a good team, but I believe in my players and expect them to play with confidence And fight for 95 minutes. “
Professionally, Donis will get back defender Maor Kandil, who missed the last game due to a suspension and may start in the squad at the expense of Ben Bitton. Matan Balteksa may replace Ophir Davidzada, who is infected.
