Tough test for Tabak in debut as Mac TA hosts CSKA

Zan Tabak’s reign at Maccabi Tel Aviv will begin against arguably the best team in Europe on Thursday night when the yellowand- blue hosts CSKA Moscow at Yad Eliyahu Arena.

The 45-year-old Croatian, who was hired as Guy Goodes’s replacement on Monday, would have likely preferred to start his tenure against almost any other opponent, especially with Maccabi in dire need of a win to keep alive its hopes of advancing to the Top 16.

Maccabi won its two BSL games under assistant coach Avi Even following Goodes’s firing to improve to 5-2, but it remains in real danger of failing to qualify for the Top 16 for the first time ever after falling to 1-4 with a home defeat to Darussafaka Istanbul last week.
