Champions League 2004/05 – Group Stage
The Champions Leauge draw places Maccabi Tel Aviv in Group C with three former European champions: Bayern Munich, Italian Juventus and Ajax Amsterdam. This was only the second time an Israeli had team qualified for the Champions League Group Stage; Maccabi Haifa got there with a historical win two years earlier. After six home and away games, Nir Klinger's players closed the Group Stage in fourth and last place with the same number of points as Ajax, but an inferior goal difference. The team had achieved one victory, one tie, and four losses, with four goals, all by Baruch Dego.
