Maccabi Tel Aviv looks to strike at slumping Chelsea

Despite Chelsea’s desperately poor start to the English Premier League season, Maccabi Tel Aviv is not forgetting for one moment how firm an underdog it will be on Wednesday night at Stamford Bridge in London.

After its remarkable run through the qualifying rounds, Maccabi could have hardly asked for a bigger spotlight for its first match back in the group stage of the Champions League since the 2004/05 season.

The yellow-and-blue will deploy a similar game-plan to the one it used against FC Basel in the playoffs, allowing its opponent to control the possession while hoping to make the most of its few chances when breaking forward.
