Hapoel Tel Aviv travel to Russia for next Thursday’s Europa League Round of 32 clash with Rubin Kazan confident of achieving a result.
Hapoel manager Eli Guttman said: “This is a very tough game against a team who beat Barcelona in the Champions League. That says it all. But I believe we can get at least a draw and return to Bloomfield with a good chance of progressing.”
Despite previously being informed that the match had been switched to southern Russia, Uefa has now told the Israelis that the game will go ahead in Kazan where temperatures of -10C are expected.
