the OGCN is well back in its Europa League Conference play-off

It’s already the third round for Maccabi Tel-Aviv

The Israelis knocked out FK Zira (Azerbaijan) and Aris Salonika (Greece) earlier in the competition.

The first quarter of an hour is reassuring for Nice

The Aiglons continue to have the ball and to be in the opposing camp. Stengs approaches the box, but gives the ball away in the wrong tempo.

OGCN keeps the ball

The stadium inevitably whistles on this long possession, but it still helps to calm the atmosphere a little.

Another hot situation for the Gym

Delort, who had taken over a center from Bard slightly deflected with a header by a Nice player, was offside anyway and had seen his shot from close range repelled by Peretz. But it can give hope to the people of Nice.

ILIE IS BLOCKED AT THE LAST MOMENT!

Small number of the Romanian, who transplanted in the axis from the left, eliminates a defender at the entrance to the surface and sees his shot being finally pushed back by another Maccabi player.

The Maccabi starts by pressing high

Thuram, with the ball at his feet, cannot even make one of the breakthroughs of which he has the secret. He is forced to lie down, and lose the ball.

Let’s go !

Nice is 180 minutes from the group stage of the Europa League Conference, where it could be the only French club (pending possible transfers after the fall).

The players enter the pitch

Nice atmosphere at the stadium, with a tifo in kop and even on the side where the supporters form the striped colors of Maccabi (blue and yellow). The stadium is sold out.

250 Nice supporters are there

A nice parking lot made possible by the existence of a section of fans in Israel, who therefore came to encourage the Aiglons.

Les Aiglons in 4-3-3, Gouiri on the bench

With three rookies on the field: Schmeichel in goal, Ramsey in the middle, Ilie in front.

Nice: Schmeichel – Atal, Todibo, Dante, Bard – Thuram, Lemina, Ramsey – Stengs, Delort, Ilie.

Replacements: Bulka, Boulhendi, Daniliuc, Mendy, Lotomba, Viti, Beka Beka, Rosario, Claude-Maurice, Brahimi, Bouanani, Gouiri.

Why should Nice be wary of Zahavi?

Answer in video, and supporting stats.

Eran Zahavi starter with the locals

It’s the best-known name of Maccabi Tel-Aviv’s starting XI. The 35-year-old striker returned to his country after two seasons at PSV Eindhoven.

Maccabi Tel Aviv: Peretz – Bitton, Yeini, Saborit – Geraldes, Golasa, van Overeem, Kanichowsky, Hozez – Zahavi, Jovanovic.

Replacements: Tenenbaum, Nachmias, Perica, Biton, Kuwas, Parfait, Rikan, Davidzada, Kandil, Piven, Turgeman, Gloukh.

The compositions have fallen!

Maccabi Tel Aviv: Peretz – Bitton, Yeini, Saborit – Geraldes, Golasa, van Overeem, Kanichowsky, Hozez – Zahavi, Jovanovic.

Nice: Schmeichel – Atal, Todibo, Dante, Bard – Thuram, Lemina, Ramsey – Stengs, Delort, Ilie.

A weighty context

The match will be held at Bloomfield Stadium in Tel Aviv, a region at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Our reporter present on the spot takes stock of the special atmosphere that reigns before this barrage.

Favre does not hide

The Aiglons coach is clearly aiming for qualification for the group stage of the Europa League Conference, while the return play-off will be held next Thursday in Nice.
