Down 0:2 in the Euroleague's quarterfinal series, Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv knows there is no more room for mistakes. On Tuesday (21:15 local, 2:15 pm ET), the Yellows will host Real Madrid, hoping to stay alive and force at least one more game.
This time, it should be different. Ten thousand fans will push the Israeli champions from the stands in an arena where Maccabi defeated the Spaniards just a few weeks ago. Hopefully, the Yellows will do it again.
"I always believe we can win the next game," said Avi Even ahead of game 3. "This is just one more final for us. we'll make adjustments and be ready for this challenge. Now it's time to stop talking about it and start doing it".
"One thing I can say for sure - we can't allow Real to score 15 three-pointers. If this happens again, we will be in a very tough place".
