Champions League 2004/05
One of the historic campaigns in the franchise’s history saw Maccabi Tel Aviv advance to the Champions League Group Stages for the first time as they recorded some fantastic results. One of the best memories was the 2:1 win over Ajax that featured young stars such as Wesley Sneijder and Rafael van de Vaart. The 1:1 draw versus Juventus was also as impressive as the Yellow & Blue faced the likes of Fabio Cannavaro, Pavel Nedved, Alessandro Del Piero, Gianluca Zambrotta, Zlatan Ibrahimović and Gianluigi Buffon (who didn’t play in the match).

In terms of results this was the most successful campaign in Maccabi’s history. Paulo Sousa’s Yellow & Blue defeated Frankfurt 4:2, beat Bordeaux twice, drew APOEL two times while only losing once to Frankfurt. The outcome was a ticket to the Round of 32 where they met Basel for a two-legged tie who ended their campaign.

Maccabi may have had a tough time in the group stages, but the journey to get there was no less than exhilarating in one of the most impressive qualification competitions by any Israeli club. It began in the 3rd round against Viktoria Plzen with a huge 2:0 away win and went to Basel where the Yellow & Blue drew 2:2 in Switzerland and picked up a 1:1 draw at Bloomfield Stadium to advance to the biggest club tournament on earth.

Last season saw Maccabi appear in European group stages once again, one where they had hoped to advance to the Round of 32. That may not have happened but the Yellow & Blue recorded 7 points with 3 coming in Holland as Eyal Golasa’s spectacular goal helped defeat Alkmaar.
