Summary: Eran Zahavi's goal in the uniform of Maccabi Tel Aviv against Aris Thessaloniki (Sport 1)
Maccabi Tel Aviv celebrated tonight at the end of a nerve-wracking game, in which Ivić's team managed to achieve the goal and advance to the playoff stage in the Conference League qualifiers.
Despite a 2:1 loss to Aris Thessaloniki in the second leg, the 0:2 victory from the first game in Israel gave the Yellows a 2:3 victory over the Greeks in the overall standings on the way to a meeting with French Nice in the next stage.
The guest fell behind after a big riot that ended with Dan Glazer's expulsion (he will not play in the first playoff game) and a penalty in favor of Aris, which Andre Gray sent in (60).
As in the first game, Eran Zahavi came on as a substitute in the 66th minute and scored in eight minutes.
The Greeks did not give up and Dokura made it 1:2 in their favor and arranged a great thriller, in which Vladan Ivić's group managed to stand up and leave with the ticket to the next stage.
In Greece they wrote after the game: "Eris fought like an animal, but Zahavi's class spoke again."
Came in as a substitute again, scored again.

The stadium: The
modern Allianz Riviera was inaugurated in September 2013, hosted four matches at Euro 2016 held in France and also hosts rugby matches and music events.
It contains 36,178 places.
Nice's crowd is considered very hot and was involved in violent incidents in the derby matches against Marseille last season and in previous years.
The average number of spectators in the league last season was 16,077.
Nice finished the previous season in fifth place, three points away from a ticket to the Champions League and only missed out on a place in the Europa League due to goal difference, when in addition they lost in the cup final to Nantes.
He started this season with a 1-1 draw at Toulouse, with new signing Aaron Ramsey coming on as a substitute and scoring within a minute.
Lucien Fabre, who led Nice to third place and Champions League qualification in 2016/17 with Mario Balotelli (the best season since runners-up in 1976), returned for a second term in place of Christophe Galtier, who moved to coach Paris Saint-Germain.
Between terms, the 64-year-old Swiss coached Borussia Dortmund for two years and before that Hertha Berlin and Borussia Monchengladbach.

Lots of money and big names.

Nice has a lot of money since the arrival of the British billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe and in the current summer Kasper Schmeichel arrived as well-known reinforcement besides Ramsey.
A lot of money was paid for the youngsters Alexi Beka Beka and Mathia Vitti and the attack continues to be led by Amin Guairi and Andy Delor.
The 38-year-old Brazilian Dante is the leader of the defense and next to him is the 22-year-old ex-Barcelona Jean-Clair Todivo.
All four of Nice's championships were in the 1950s, with the last title being the third cup in 1997, the season in which they were also relegated to the minor league.
The Israeli connection:
Nice met Hapoel Be'er Sheva twice at home in the European League two years ago, when they won 0:1 at home and lost by the same score in Turner after a goal by Rotem Hatuel.
An earlier contact was with Alon Mizrahi, who played in the team when it was in the second league in 1999.
