As the saga surrounding the venue for Monday night's game against Hapoel Ramat Hasharon drags on, Maccabi Tel Aviv's players continued with their preparations for the match

Maccabi Tel Aviv's players were greeted this morning by rain as they continued their preparations for Monday night's match against Hapoel Ramat Hasharon. With the exception of the injured striker Moannes Dabbur, the entire squad participated in the training. Dabbur is at present in Italy undergoing special treatment in an effort to get him back to full fitness for the European Under 21 championships that will be held in Israel after the end of the season. It is not yet officially known where Monday's match against Hapoel Ramat Hasharon will be played and as a result ticket sales have yet to begin. According to sports media reports the Tel Aviv branch of the Metropolitan Police have obtained a temporary closure order for Ramat Hasharon's Grundman Stadium making it likely that the match will ultimately be played at the National Stadium in Ramat Gan. But officially staff at Maccabi Tel Aviv are still awaiting the final outcome of the deliberations.
