The Maccabi Tel Aviv squad have landed in Germany ahead of their Thursday night Europa League tie against Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt

The Maccabi Tel Aviv squad landed in Germany today (Tuesday) ahead of their third Europa League group stage encounter on Thursday night at 10.05pm with Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt. The team started their day with a morning practice at the Kiryat Shalom training ground and a pre-departure press conference before making their way to Ben Gurion airport outside of Tel Aviv.

Dozens of Maccabi Tel Aviv supporters accompanied the players on their flight and rocked the plane with a whole host of Maccabi songs that provided a festive atmosphere that lasted from take-off to landing. By the time the plane had touched down every player on board had heard his praises sung and duly thanked the accompanying fans for their support.

Tomorrow the club will hold their traditional pre-match press conference and a final practice before Thursday night's match. Updates on the latest events surrounding the team's trip to Germany will be continuously reported on the official Maccabi Tel Aviv website and on the official Facebook and Google+ pages.
