When these two teams secured European qualification back in May, both would’ve been expecting to reach the group stages, but one will fall at the penultimate hurdle of qualifying.
AEK Larnaca were featuring in the Europa Conference League round of 16 less than six months ago, kicking off this campaign by overcome Torpedo-BelAZ Zhodino last week.
José Luis Oltra’s team won the first leg 3-2 in Mezőkövesd, meaning last Thursday’s 1-1 draw at home was enough to see the Yellow-Greens advance.
Now, will the Cypriot side remain on track to reach a group phase in back-to-back seasons for the very first time?
Maccabi Tel Aviv meantime featured in the group stages in both 2020 and 2021, before being ousted by Nice in the play-offs 12 months ago.
This time round, led by Robbie Keane, they smashed Petrocub Hîncești in the previous round, running out 3-0 winners at Bloomfield Stadium, before a 2-0 victory in Chișinău six nights ago.
Thus, this tie is very tough to call before a ball is kicked at Georgios Karapatakis AEK Arena.
The winners of this tie will take on Celje or Neman Grodno in the UEFA Europa Conference League play-offs.
