Tikteknu: today's summary clip, 16.8 (Sport1)

Maccabi Haifa is 180 minutes away from returning to the Champions League.

Tonight, the champions of Israel finish their preparations for the first meeting in the Champions League playoffs against Red Star Belgrade (Wednesday, 22:00), a little while after all the tickets for the match against the champions of Serbia, who will host the second leg next Tuesday, were sold out.

Tomorrow will actually be the first time that the Champions League anthem is played at the stadium in Haifa in a match of Maccabi Haifa, who will try to return to the group stage for the first time since 2009/10.

According to the last training sessions, coach Barak Bakr continued with the team that won fourth place in victories over Olympiakos and Apollon Limassol, which means that Dean David and Ferenzi Piero will go forward, while on the bench Omer Atzili and Mohamed Abu Fani will be waiting for the opportunity, and Neta Lavi will be preferred over him.

Trusts his players.

The coach of the greens spoke today at a press conference ahead of the meeting with the Serbs tomorrow.

First, Bacher commented on the effects of the loss to Limassol in the rematch of the previous round: "It seems to me that we are being a little strict about the ability we showed in Cyprus. If you look purely at the situations, it should have ended 2:5 for us. It is true that there were also less good things, but this is a very good team and we reached this stage thanks to We are in an excellent position and in good shape and want to take another step forward."

On the preparations for the match against the Serbs: "Obviously we want to come and play our game, but we are playing against a strong opponent. Against Olympiakos, we went on the attack and scored an early goal. We have mature players who know how to handle difficult situations, as was the case in Limassol. Things can go well More or less, what's important is reacting to developments, trusting the players to do it."

On their importance to Ali Muhammad and Charon Sherry: "There is no doubt that Sherry and Ali, in addition to being significant in terms of leadership and ability, are also in good shape. Sherry influences the team with his leadership and intensity. He knows he has an important task tomorrow and there is no doubt that he is ready for it ".

Charon Sherry: "The coach prepared us with all the information about the opponent. We are ready for the game and enjoying the moment."

About himself: "Everyone knows my qualities and what I know, but I also like to share the game with my friends and make them better. I always dream big, if you don't dream you won't achieve your goals. This is one of the biggest moments in my career and I will do everything to pass this stage. There is great motivation, I've been waiting for this for a long time."

Meanwhile, the Greens received intriguing news from their opponent, when it was reported in Serbia that striker Milan Pavkov did not join the trip to Israel.

Pavkov, who scored six goals in six games this season in all formats, also missed the 0:4 loss against Vozdovac in the league last weekend due to a stomach virus, according to the words of coach Diane Stankovic, and it is not yet known if this is the reason for his absence this time as well.

The one who might benefit from this and start an attack is Alexander Peshich, ex-Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Ohi Umojuanfo also suffered from the same virus as Fabkov, but recovered and will arrive in Haifa.
