Maccabi Tel Aviv will continue its European season tomorrow (Tuesday, 9:30 p.m.) when it hosts Barcelona's Palau in L'Ograna.

The Yellows come to the game in eighth place in the Euroleague with 11 wins and 10 losses, while their opponent is ranked fourth with 13 wins and 8 losses.

The team held a light training session today in Tel Aviv after the unconvincing victory over Kiryat Ata City last night, and from there continued to the airport.

Maccabi Tel Aviv will start the journey in five days, when after the game against Barcelona, ​​Valencia will continue to another game in Spain on Thursday, and will return to Israel on Friday when its next Euroleague game outside of Israel will be held only after three weeks.

Austin Hollins is suffering from a knee injury he sustained in the loss to Panathinaikos.

He will not play this week, and Maccabi will soon know how long he will be absent, when it is possible that he will be injured for several months.

On the other hand, Lorenzo Brown did go with the team to Spain, but of course he is not expected to play.

Ketch said about Hollins: "It doesn't look so good, I haven't received a final diagnosis yet, but let's hope for him that it's not that serious, we won't see him in the near future."

Maccabi Tel Aviv embarks on the current journey with a clear goal - to return with one win and avoid returning to a negative balance at such a stage of the season, a balance that means going out of the playoff zone and adding pressure on the squad.

Lorenzo Brown did not go with the team to Spain due to his ankle injury, and the club estimates that he may be fit for the game against Red Star next week.

The team hopes that one of the team's other guards will step up in the upcoming games and give them strength from Brown's injury.

Ketch was asked if in such a situation one gives up one game and already thinks about the second, which is more realistic, and answered: "We have two very difficult games, it is impossible to determine in advance which will be more difficult, each game has a different dynamic. We arrive again without Lorenzo, which is Significant, and we also have to manage workloads, expand the rotation, but we will not give up any game in advance. There are difficult sequences in the Euroleague, there are injuries, and we have to go through these periods.

"Against Olympiakos we started well, which is something we don't always do, we won three quarters and we can be encouraged, but there is no doubt that Barcelona has one of the best quality squads in the Euroleague, and it will not be easy at all. There is a lot of quality in the Euroleague. They have a lot of experience, not just quality. , you have to play a perfect game to beat them."
