Remember November?

The test of Barak Yitzhaki and Maccabi Tel Aviv

Barak Yitzhaki did not dream of a scenario in which he is one home victory over Lasek Lynch (22:00, Sport4) away from qualifying for the eighth finals of the Conference League in March and even skipping the playoffs in February.

But what bothers the interim coach, who has been in the job for a month and it is still unclear when his replacement will land?

The 1: 1 summary of Maccabi Tel Aviv away against Lasek Lynch in the Conference League (Sport 1)

Maccabi Tel Aviv will be able to secure a place in the eighth finals of the Conference League tonight (Thursday) if it manages to beat Lasek Linz in the direct meeting between them on the presidency of House A (22:00, Sport4). After the draw in Austria, it was clear to Maccabi Tel Aviv that they had a good chance of being on the eve of the rematch against Lusk in a position on which things depend.



Helsinki turned out to be a very weak rival and Maccabi Tel Aviv easily defeated it away and at home and in the first round the high victory was also recorded over Armenian champions Alskart. The important point in Klagenfurt against Lusk paved the way for tonight's meeting that could arrange for Maccabi Tel Aviv a knockout ticket for the factory that was launched at the UEFA initiative last summer and meanwhile puts a lot of money into the club because the grants distributed there are the same as those given in the Europa League.



If Maccabi Tel Aviv wins tonight, it will finish with the first certainty and will automatically advance to the round of 16.

If it loses, Maccabi Tel Aviv will finish second and will have to face the playoffs for promotion to the quarterfinals in February against a team that finishes third in the Europa League.

Beyond the fact that it will be a difficult meeting because in the Europa League better quality teams play, it will be another burden for the trophy holder as a pair of games will be added in February, which she can avoid if she wins tonight and secures tonight at midnight in the quarterfinals.

The problem will not be solved so quickly.

There are a few things that bother Barak Yitzhaki ahead of tonight's game. The first is the absence of Dan Glazer. It's not just an absence from tonight's game. Glazer suffers from a knee problem that will not be resolved so quickly and if he and Maccabi Tel Aviv want to avoid surgery, he will have to be absent from time to time in favor of rest and reinforcements. Glazer is one of the most important players in the arsenal of Maccabi Tel Aviv and when he is not on the pitch, there is a shortage on his face in another important means of the Yellows.



But this is not the only thing that excludes sleep from Yitzhaki. If he could he would surely want to get to tonight's game after a league game last Saturday. The fact that the league went into a three-week break and tonight's game will be Maccabi Tel Aviv's first after such a long period without a game, makes tonight's game, from the point of view of Maccabi Tel Aviv's coach, a very big question mark. In this case, the rest given to the players can also lead to the difficulty of getting into the first game, and this is what is being talked about a lot this week in Kiryat Shalom.



In contrast to the strainer that Maccabi Tel Aviv presents in the Premier League, Europe is doing better this season.

In this house she has so far a great goal difference of 2:13 thanks to the high results against Helsinki and Alskart.

The problem of absorption in the Premier League is meanwhile missing out on the team in Europe also because of the mediocre rivals and in order to get through the game tonight in peace, Maccabi Tel Aviv will have to implement the defensive game workshop that the team has been going through for several weeks.

Patrick Van Leven and certainly Yitzhaki also have a lot of attention for the goal absorption that has become an epidemic this season in the Premier League.

Maccabi Tel Aviv conceded 15 goals in nine rounds in Israel.

More than a goal and a half per game and it is a given that if she does not know how to handle it tonight, it will be very difficult for her to win the game.

who would believe?

And there is another matter, Maccabi Tel Aviv has so far not been able to sweep its audience to this factory. This may be due to the results in the Premier League and it may be that the fans did not connect to the third factory in its importance. One way or another, more than 12,000 spectators are not expected to attend tonight's game and in the great Bloomfield such an amount can be swallowed up. In Kiryat Shalom, they hoped that the long break would develop a hunger for Israeli football, but in addition to the 8,000 subscribers that Maccabi Tel Aviv sold for the factory's three home games, about 4,000 ticket buyers have been added for tonight's game and it is doubtful if anything will change for tonight.



Unlike Luan Leven, who followed one method throughout his entire period as Maccabi Tel Aviv coach, Yitzhaki checks at least two. At first he played like Van Leven and did not want to burden the players with learning a new method. The derby has already come up with three brakes and it is possible that tonight he will play like that too. In this lineup there is room for Enrique Sborrit and Andre Geralds to attack more and join the front. Against Hapoel Tel Aviv, it was very difficult to break through the bunker that Nir Klinger made after Osher Davida gave the team an early advantage. Tonight, Maccabi Tel Aviv hopes not to absorb firsts and not encounter such a closed lineup of Austrians.



If Barak Yitzhaki had been told in the summer that he would be the team's interim coach for a month, he would surely have been grinning.

If he had been told that he would stand on the lines in one of Maccabi Tel Aviv's most challenging European games during the Mitch Goldhaar period at the end of November, he would probably have laughed.

But the reality is stronger than anything and Yitzhaki will lead the team tonight to a game that can earn them a lot of credit points in Europe, a lot of money and a lot of prestige.

Next week there are two league games here in the country and he will also have to win them so as not to let this season run away, but first Yitzhaki has a task tonight and believe him he does not think of anything but how to get through it safely.
