Mac TA embarrassed in Malta

Maccabi Tel Aviv’s European campaign is in danger of ending in shock fashion next week after the three-time defending Israeli champion suffered a humbling 2-1 defeat at Malta’s Hibernians on Tuesday.

The yellow-and-blue left itself with plenty of work to do in the second leg of the Champions l eague second qualifying round at Bloomfield s tadium next Tuesday, after conceding two soft goals in the second half, canceling out Nosa Igiebor’s opener.

Maccabi looked to be in complete control after the n igerian gave it a 1-0 lead in the 22nd minute. However, Jorginho’s equalizer in the 74th minute and Jackson Lima’s winner five minutes from time seriously complicated Tel Aviv’s situation in a round it was expected to come through with ease.
