Team News: Maccabi Tel Aviv
There is just a single fitness concern for the Maccabi Tel Aviv manager Robbie Keane to be concerned about from an otherwise complete set of players. Or Yitzhak (surgery) will miss out.
In all likelihood, The Yellows should employ a 4-3-3 system in the match with Orlando Mosquera, Avishay Cohen, Derrick Luckassen, Enric Saborit, Roy Revivo, Dor Peretz, Joris van Overeem, Gabi Kanichowsky, Dan Biton, Eran Zahavi and Milson.

Thanks to a fully injury-free group available to choose from, the Zorya Luhansk manager Valeriy Kryventsov doesn’t have any fitness worries at all coming into this clash.
We reckon that Zorya Luhansk will likely elect for a 4-5-1 system, going with Mykyta Turbaievskyi, Daniel Alefirenko, Arseniy Batahov, Jordan, Igor Snurnitsyn, Igor Kiryckhancev, Petar Micin, Vyacheslav Churko, Denis Nagnoynyi, Denys Antyukh and Eduardo Guerrero.
We feel that in this game, Zorya Luhansk will likely create enough chances to break down this Maccabi Tel Aviv team, however that might not be as many as they will have scored against them.
