Chelsea vs Maccabi Tel Aviv by Shooter
After the defeat in Community Shield versus Arsenal they lost in Premiere League versus Cristal Palace and Everton.
The team is trying to come back on track but they are struggling to find the right balance, Mourinho is under fire but he insisted that he is still the man for the job at Stamford Bridge.
Tonight maybe we will see if the new left back Baba hoping to make his debut will be able to give solid help to the defense department.
On the other side, israeli champions Maccabi started in a very good way their season, they are second in their domestic division after winning two of their opening three matches. They changed coach and with Jokanovic they sims to have found the right tactic method.
However I must admit they were very lucky to reach this stage of Champions League, they drew twice versus Basilea and the 2-2 on the second match was reached shooting only two times on goal during the entire match.
Maccabi will count on their key offensive player Zahavi (ex Palermo) wich started the new season very well scoring 12 times in 12 official matches, including Israel national team matches.
Chelsea will be forced to make some changes to their side, with Fabregas and Ivanovic expected to start from the bench.
The Blues are still without goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, but Oscar is back after recovering from a knee injury.
The visitors will miss Eliazer Dasa, who was sent off for previous club Beitar Jerusalem in the Europa League earlier this summer.
Eden Ben Basat should lead the attack, alongside captain Zahavi.
Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Begovic, Azpilicueta, Terry, Cahill, Rahman, Matic, Ramires, Hazard, Oscar, Pedro, Costa
Maccabi Tel Aviv possible starting lineup:
Rajkovic, Ziv, Tibi, Garcia, Haim, Shpungin, Alberman, Mitrovic, Rikan, Zahavi, Basat
My call, both teams to score, good luck!
