Betar Jerusalem defeated Maccabi Netanya 1: 2. Summary of the game

After 16 days without football due to a severe corona outbreak and in the shadow of the dramatic announcement regarding Sheikh Hemed Khalifa, Betar Jerusalem returned tonight (Thursday) to the grass and scratched a very important 1: 2 away against Maccabi Netanya even though it collapsed fatigue and just fell off its feet. It manifests itself, you ask? Ali Muhammad, who recovered from the virus and came on in the 57th minute, was replaced less than half an hour later.A pretty rare event, certainly when it comes to a player with excellent physical fitness like his.

The hero of the game was Idan Vered, who cooked for Michael Ohana (9) and doubled (61) with his debut goal this season, but in Betar Jerusalem nothing goes smoothly this season. Eliran Atar hit Lamak Benda in the face (73), saw the red card and returned Maccabi Netanya for the game, but Fernand Guri only shrank with his first in the Premier League (76) and the Diamonds, who suffered from inaccuracy, recorded a disappointing loss and also lost coach Raymond Atwald to the referee in extra time and was sent off.

As mentioned, Netanya can certainly come out disappointed. She arrived without a few situations, but did not take advantage of the great fatigue of the Betar Jerusalem players and suffered from inaccuracies in the front. The Diamonds can be encouraged by Shir Tzedek coming off the bench and recording first minutes while Abubakar Dombia opened for the first time at 11 and showed reasonable ability. Roy Corinne , Who replaced him, was injured and had to leave on his own ten minutes later.The bright spot is the young puppy, who as mentioned got off the bench, scored for the first time in the senior team uniform and proved that the club has a future.

The Jerusalemites started with the veteran Tal Ben-Haim, with Santiago Ocampus and Uri Megbo placed in the wings due to a weakness suffered by Oren Bitton and Shai Konstantin who started on the bench alongside Ali Muhammad who also did not fully recover from the corona. Michael Ohana, Yarden Shoa and Eliran Atar were on the attack. At Netanya, Almog Cohen, who helped the team not absorb in the last three games, continued at 11, with Shir Tzedek waiting on the bench for the premiere in yellow-black. Abubaker Domvia, who went up for five minutes against Hapoel Haifa, opened for the first time.

The Jerusalemites started the game with a lot of enthusiasm and in the ninth minute also went up on the scoreboard, when a beautiful team move ended with Michael Ohana finding the net for the fourth time this season in his 11th appearance. Idan Vered signed on for cooking. Netanya woke up after the goal and was close to equalizing (36), but Itamar Nitzan flew and with his fingertips hit a bomb of Ayalon Yerushalmi that made its way to the connections. Just before the break, Aviv Avraham found himself in a comfortable position, but did not kick well enough and it was 0: 1 for the visitors in the half.

Netanya continued to dominate in the second half as well, but the big opportunity was actually for Betar Jerusalem: Danny Amos lost a ball carelessly and Jordan Shua rolled close to the exposed net, but Almog Cohen emerged at the last minute and prevented a safe goal. What a negligent miss by the striker, but Luckily, Betar doubled two minutes later, when Aviel Zargari Harim and Vered, the first goal scorer, hit it wholeheartedly. is over? Definately not. Atar, in an irresponsible action, hit Benda in the face and was sent off (76), but fortunately Netanya only managed to shrink from a shot by Guri (76) and it is a big 1: 2 for the visitors at the end.

Betar Jerusalem recorded its third away victory in a row and is in a good position to enter the top playoffs, with three games missing and only four points less than Maccabi Netanya, which is in sixth place. On Monday, Jerusalem is facing a difficult test in the form of home games against Maccabi Haifa. On the other hand, the Diamonds absorbed for the first time after three games and they will hope to improve positions on Monday in an important away game against Hapoel Kiryat Shmona, which is fighting with it and Betar for the place in the first six.
