Guarding themselves: Maccabi Tel Aviv is ready for the rematch against Aris

Ivić used psychological warfare in the press conference, and whether he succeeds in confusing Aris or not, he too knows that the defensive game will determine whether Maccabi Tel Aviv will qualify for the conference qualifying playoffs.

"There were 38 mandatory goals last season and this is the first figure that Ivic wanted to correct when he arrived," the club said

Summary of the Conference League qualifiers: Maccabi Tel Aviv - Aris Thessaloniki 0:2 (Sport1)

Maccabi Tel Aviv will open their fourth day in Greece this morning in Thessaloniki and they hope at the end, tonight (Thursday, 21:00, Sport1), to be the one to leave the stadium of Ares Thessaloniki happy.

Last night, the players held the final training for the game and before that they reviewed the home stadium of Aris, who used to be the back of the hosts in many games.



Coach Veldan Ivic tried a little psychological warfare at the press conference yesterday and scattered all kinds of hints regarding his composition and formation.

The Serbian knows that everything he says goes immediately to Aris Thessaloniki's coach and the club's people, and as he said last week before the first game that Eran Zahavi might start while he knew that he would only bring him in as a substitute, also last night the Maccabi Tel Aviv coach made some deliberate mistakes to let Aris' people break the the head.



Ivić is not expected to make any changes to his formation but will likely go with Ofir Davidzade in place of Matan Khozaz as a left back in a three-back formation, in what should be his only change to the eleven from who started at Bloomfield last Thursday.

The issue of Eran Zahavi was also on the agenda yesterday and although it is very tempting to add him to the lineup, the chances that Ivić will go for it are not very high.

He knew that his every word would go straight to his opponent.

Tonight's game is a classic example of the change made in home and away games in the European framework when an away goal no longer has any meaning.

This means that if in the past a 0:2 victory, as Maccabi Tel Aviv has in hand from the last game, could have been significant because a goal advantage in Thessaloniki would have required them to score four in order to pass, now there is no longer such an advantage.

Because of this, Maccabi Tel Aviv focused mainly on the defensive part and the defensive work of the whole team.

Before tonight's game there should be more attention to the absorption column compared to the conquest column.

An away goal by Maccabi Tel Aviv will not close the story tonight because Aris is able to score a trio at home, so the focus will be on keeping Daniel Peretz's goal.

So far it has worked well for Ivych.

In each of Maccabi Tel Aviv's four official games since Ivić's comeback, she has not conceded a goal.

That's the goal for tonight.

Even if Ivic said yesterday at the press conference that his goal is to win the game tonight and that he sees it as a second half to what happened in Bloomfield,



For this purpose, Ivić will have very experienced players at his disposal at the back.

Nir Biton, Sharan Yeni and Enrik Saborit are three players who have been through a lot in football and Aris' home stadium should not pose a threat to them.

Next to them, Andre Geraldes and Ofir Davidzadeh will play on the wings, while Dan Glazer will wait for Aris' attacks already in the midfield.

"There were 38 mandatory goals last season and this is the first figure that Ivic wanted to correct when he arrived," Maccabi Tel Aviv said last night.

"If we know how to continue to keep a clean sheet as was the case in the previous games this season in Europe and in the Toto Cup, then we will be up to the task."

Ivitch is not expected to send Eran Zahavi in ​​the starting lineup and he will wait for the right timing to bring him in, when the ambition is that it will happen at a stage when the game is at least balanced.

Zahavi raises the level of the team's play as soon as he enters and Ivić will hope to receive him in a good situation as far as Maccabi Tel Aviv is concerned.

Although there is a thought to start with Zahavi instead of Randley Kovas, it is very doubtful if it will happen tonight.



650 Maccabi Tel Aviv fans arrived in Thessaloniki until last night and today a few dozen more will be added and maybe a little more.

Maccabi Tel Aviv should encounter the army of Ares fans, but they will still receive good support from the stands even if the packages to Thessaloniki were very expensive.
