Buoyant Maccabi Tel Aviv looks ahead

With the dramatic second-leg, second-half rally against Viktoria Plzen still fresh in its mind, Maccabi Tel Aviv will find out on Friday the identity of the final opponent standing in the way of the realization of its Champions League dream.

With 20 minutes to play in the second leg on Wednesday night, the three-time defending Israeli champion seemed set to be knocked out in the third qualifying round for a third straight year.

After losing the first leg at home 2-1, Maccabi had managed to muster just two shots towards the Plzen goal in the first 70 minutes of the return leg in the Czech Republic, with only one of them finding the target.
