end It was a difficult week for the Yellows, starting with an away loss to Bayern Munich, which almost completely eliminated the chances of qualifying for the Euroleague playoffs, at the end of a game in which Yannis Sapropoulos' team was very close to an away victory but failed in the last quarter. For many minutes on the way to a losing streak that broke a streak of seven league victories.



Apart from the injured Yuval Sussman, Sapropoulos will have a full staff, including Omri Caspi, who returned to the game last week after a month and a half.

Maccabi Tel Aviv believes that Caspi's road to good playing fitness is not long, and he is expected to receive minutes from Yannis Sapropoulos.

The team emphasizes defensive ability, in an attempt to stop the game of the Russians fighting for the home advantage in the Euroleague playoffs.

The one who is not expected to dress for the game is TJ Klein.

In the first round, CSKA Moscow won 72:76, interrupting two victories for the Yellows, which came after nine consecutive victories for the Russians in the battles between the teams. Due to staff problems, CSKA was in a bad period recently in the Euroleague, when it won the Olympics last week. Has lost five of its last seven games.



CSKA is led this season by Mike James, who has been out of the club until recently, and he is recording 20.5 points and 5.8 assists per game this season. In addition to double digits, Will Claiborne with 13.4 points, Toko Shangalya with 10.7 points and Darron Hilliard with 10.1 CSKA recently added two new players to the squad - center Michael Eric from Turk Telecom Ankara and Danish guard Ipa Lundberg from Zilona Gora from Poland, who scored 13 points in his debut against Olympiacos last week.



"Maccabi is chasing a place in the playoffs," said Dimitris Itodis ahead of the game, "is a very energetic team that relies on the open field, they force ball losses with its exchange defense or when it plays big basketball and tries to put pressure on you. It's always hard to play in Tel Aviv, but We have all the ingredients to play a good game and try to win. "
