The match of the 3rd round of the group stage of the Conference League between Maccabi Tel Aviv and Luhansk Zorya may be postponed.
The Israeli club appealed to UEFA with a request to postpone the match, which is scheduled for October 26 at the Bloomfield Stadium in Tel Aviv, due to the situation in the country.
Due to the attack by Hamas terrorists on Israel and the operation of the country's defense forces in the Gaza Strip, the Israeli Ministry of Culture and Sports canceled all sports events. Therefore, Maccabi will not be able to host the game because of the war.
"Maccabi Tel Aviv football club appealed to UEFA in the morning with a request to postpone the game with Luhansk Zorya in the Conference League, which is to take place on October 26," the statement said.
It should be noted that Zorya and Maccabi Tel Aviv must play two matches in a row in the Conference League. Nominally, the home match of the 4th round of the European Cup for the Ukrainian club is scheduled for November 9 in the Polish city of Lublin.
After two rounds, Zorya is second in the Conference League group with 4 points, inferior in additional indicators to the Belgian Gent. Maccabi Tel Aviv (3 points) is in third position. The quartet closes the Icelandic "Breidablik", having no points in its asset.
The winners of the groups will advance to the 1/8 finals of the Conference League. The runners-up in the play-offs will play against eight clubs that will take third place in the group stage of the Europa League.
