Maccabi Tel Aviv dealt daunting yet fair draw

Maccabi Tel Aviv was handed an intriguing draw on Thursday after ending its 11-year wait to reach the Champions League, being placed with Chelsea, Porto and Dynamo Kiev in Group G.

After overcoming FC Basel on away goals in the second leg of the playoffs on Tuesday to cap a remarkable qualifying run, Maccabi was delighted to simply be in Monaco for Thursday’s draw.

The yellow-and-blue would have been a firm underdog in any group and doesn’t have a realistic chance of finishing among the group’s top two, which will advance to the last 16.
