Maccabi Haifa and Maccabi Tel Aviv will play in UEFA club competitions in Serbia

UEFA has relocated the upcoming UEFA Europa League and Europa Conference League matches featuring Israeli

sides Maccabi Haifa and Maccabi Tel Aviv to Belgrade, Serbia.

UEFA ruled immediately after the Israel-Hamas began that it wasn’t safe for the Israelis to host European fixtures in Israel,

stipulating that Israeli national team and European competition club matches had to be played in neutral venues and behind closed doors.

Since mid-October, a variety of different countries have hosted Israeli teams, with the latest fixtures to be concentrated into one venue.

UEFA said the neutral venue will allow the clubs to focus on the game while minimizing potential risks associated

with the complex security situation in the region.

Maccabi Haifa had its UEFA Europa League clash with Villarreal shifted to a venue in Cyprus earlier this month.

The latest relocations cover UEFA Europa League matchday 5 (Maccabi Haifa FC ) and UEFA Europa Conference League matchdays 3

and 6 group stage matches involving Maccabi Tel Aviv FC.

UEFA Europa League matchday 5

Maccabi Haifa FC vs Stade Rennais FC, at Stadion Rajko Mitić in Belgrade, Serbia, on Thursday 30 November

UEFA Europa Conference League matchdays 3 and 6

Maccabi Tel Aviv  vs FC Zorya Luhansk, at TSC Arena in Backa Topola, Serbia, on Saturday 25 November

FC Maccabi Tel Aviv  vs KAA Gent, at TSC Arena in Backa Topola, Serbia, on Thursday 14 December

Maccabi Haifa will hope to earn their first win of the season in Europa League Group F against Rennais later this month,

as the Israeli side sits bottom of the group. They have played one less match than third-placed Panathinaikos

after a match between Haifa and Villarreal was postponed earlier this month.

Maccabi Tel Aviv, however, sits second in their Conference League group after winning two of the opening three games.

Similarly, Tel Aviv had a match postponed earlier this month, giving the team one game in hand over group-leader Gent,

who sit four points clear at the top.Read More
