Yellow-and-blue begins busy stretch with crucial Real clash

Maccabi Tel Aviv hosts Real Madrid at Yad Eliyahu Arena on Thursday night to begin a six-game stretch over the next 13 days that could either kickstart its campaign or set the alarm bells ringing.

Maccabi opened its BSL season with two consecutive wins, but dropped to a 99-97 defeat at Olimpia Milano in its Euroleague opener last week and is desperate not to fall to 0-2 despite the competition’s new format in which each of the 16 teams plays 30 regular season games before the top eight advance to the playoffs.
