(JNS) — Maccabi Haifa FC has reached the Champions League group stage for the first time since 2009.
The team will get between $26 million to $30 million due to Maccabi Haifa’s victory over FK Crvena Zvezda (“Red Star Belgrade”) and entry into the Uefa Champions League Group Stage.
After winning the first leg 4-3 at home, the Israelis trailed 2-0 in Belgrade before goals from Daniel Sundgren and a last-minute own goal by Milan Pavkov lifted Maccabi Haifa to a 6-5 aggregate triumph, reported Globes.
