Basketball: Yellow-and-blue puts Moscow blowout behind it as Malaga visits

Maccabi Tel Aviv aims to put last week’s humbling defeat to CSKA Moscow well and truly behind it when it hosts Unicaja Malaga at Yad Eliyahu Arena in its Euroleague home opener on Thursday night.

Maccabi was handed a harsh reminder of the massive gap it will have to bridge to compete with Europe’s best with last Thursday’s emphatic 100-69 defeat in Moscow.

Maccabi was embarrassed by the hosts, capitulating in the second period and failing to even put up a fight in the second half, dropping to its second- heaviest defeat in Europe since 1991 after losing to CSKA by 35 points in February 2014.
