Basel next for Maccabi Tel Aviv

By Danny Caro, December 16, 2013

Maccabi Tel Aviv's reward for reaching the last 32 of the Europa League is a tie against FC Basel 1893.

Paulo Sousa's troops finished runners-up in their group behind Eintracht Frankfurt and will face a Basel team who finished third in their Champions League group.

The tie gives Maccabi a chance to avenge the 4-3 aggregate in this season's UEFA Champions League third qualifying round.

The two legs for the round of 32 will be played on 20 February and 27 February, with the winner facing Ajax or Salzburg in the last 16.
