Summary: Aris Thessaloniki - Maccabi Tel Aviv 1:2 (Sport1)
Kasper Schmeichel made his debut last night (Sunday) between the goalposts of Nice, Maccabi Tel Aviv's next opponent in the Conference League playoffs.
The 35-year-old Dane, who sat on the bench against Toulouse, recorded several saves but also suffered a 1:1 draw with Strasbourg.
Now he is ready for his next assignment - the Yellows, on Thursday in Bloomfield.
"It will be exciting," he said.
"Every team wants to experience the European factories, and so do we. We want to reach the group stage and go far in this factory. It will be difficult, but we are ready."
On his debut he said: "I got a nice reception, I did my job. A goalkeeper is supposed to create the foundation on which victories are built. I was pretty good, but not good enough."
Coach Lucien Fabre is also looking ahead, towards the meeting with the Yellows.
Last night he started with a strong lineup, and it is not clear whether he will rotate on Thursday: "The games in Europe require a lot of energy, there is also a journey, two four-hour flights, and then a game every three days, but if you want to play in the European factories then this is what you have to do" .

About the match itself he said: "I'll take the positives, there were some good moments, I'll settle for a draw even though it's quite frustrating."
Finally, regarding the rumors regarding the possible addition of Edinson Cavani and Bamba Dieng from Marseille, he said: "They are interesting players, but it is difficult for me to say beyond that. It is very difficult to complete transfers, it is not easy."
