Maccabi Tel Aviv- Third 2017/18 Barak Itzhaki #10 (Europa League) vs. FC Astana

An extremely rare Barak Itzhaki match issued/prepared shirt for the Maccabi Tel Aviv vs FC Astana Europa League group stages match played on October 19th, 2017 at the Astana Arena in Kazakhstan. Itzhaki wasn't included in the squad as he had been sick prior to the match. Maccabi lost this match 4-0 and ultimately finished last in Group A of the 2017/18 Europa League. They featured against Villareal, Slavia Prague and FC Astana, and received four points from the six matches. 

The shirt is very rare as this was the only match in the Europa League where the third kit was worn. Maccabi wore the blue away kit in their two other away matches and wore the yellow kit in all three home matches. 

Maccabi played all of their 2017/18 home matches in the Netanya Stadium, as their regular stadium, Bloomfield Stadium, was undergoing renovations.
