There is no excuse anymore: Maccabi Tel Aviv's foreign balance

The key to the playoffs is largely in the hands of the teams that will accumulate away wins, and last week's loss in Berlin hit the Yellows.

But a closer look contradicts the assumption that Yannis Sapropoulos and his players are screwing up abroad more than they should

At one point, between the first and second quarters of last week in Berlin, Maccabi Tel Aviv went through a third season in the 2021/22 season in the Euroleague. After 12 rounds, the Yellows are ranked seventh with a 5: 7 balance, and if they continue at the current pace, they will enter the playoffs and play in it for the first time since the transition to the league system.



But the game board is a bit misleading. So far, Maccabi has hosted five of the teams in 18th-11th places and won four; Outside, they played against four of the teams in 8-1 places, and lost to all of them, when by the end of the round they will be hosted tonight (Thursday, 21:45) by Real Madrid and later this month by Zenit St Petersburg.



It is estimated that the Israeli champion will need 19 victories to reach the top eight, and if in a reasonable Euroleague season she is worth between 13 and 14 home victories, it means that she will have to achieve five or six away victories.

But while Yad Eliyahu is considered a fortress in which the Yellows rarely lose, outside the shrine they have difficulty with the new method.

They are currently on two wins from six games so far, and we tried to check how achievable the current task is - and how bad Maccabi Tel Aviv really is.

The kind of games that should not be missed.

Let's start with the conclusion: Maccabi Tel Aviv does not really have a problem in away games in the Euroleague. In the 2019/20 season, in which it secured its place in the playoffs but was halted due to the Corona plague, it held a balance of six wins versus eight away losses; This is the only time since the move to the league system where the Yellows have passed the five-point away win, and also the only season where their success rates outside the arena (42.8%) were higher than the average in the whole factory (38.1%).



But these figures are subject to further determination: the improvement in the foreign balance was due to the fact that Maccabi Model 2020 was simply better than all the teams it met in other seasons. Her home balance has also skyrocketed significantly, with 13 wins in 14 games.



Last season, in the face of the orphaned stands caused by traffic constraints in Europe, the success rates of the home teams dropped to 55; Maccabi's situation was similar at home (53 percent), but outside it dropped to less than 28 percent.

33% are not an impressive number, but still above the European average.

And what's going on this season?

With the return of the audience, at least at this point it seems that homeliness has never been more significant.

108 Euroleague games have been played so far, with the home team standing at 69.5% success and the visitors winning only 30.5% of the games.

Maccabi Tel Aviv currently has a 1: 5 balance at home (83.3%) and 4: 2 away (33.3%, slightly above average).



It is likely that the average away wins of the entire factory will level, as usual, to the area of ​​37-35 percent, and also that Maccabi will not maintain such a good home balance, with games against Real, CSKA Moscow, Olympia Milan, Olympiacos and Anadolu zero in hand. Elijah. The key will be in the away games; losses like the one recorded last week in Berlin may turn out to be a serious problem for Yannis Sapropoulos. Answers? Starting tonight, around 11:30 p.m.
