“We lost to Maccabi Tel Aviv, but we are still in first place.” This is what a coach said Maccabi Haifa, Barak Bachar after a 2: 1 loss to the Greens in the game of the season. Since then only two weeks have passed and the team lost the summit on Saturday. Tonight (Monday, 20:45) Maccabi Haifa will be able to return to the top if it does not lose to Betar Jerusalem, but it will want to win, show character and perhaps “answer” to all those who doubt it. Of course a victory will return the Greens to the top with a two point advantage, as Which was the eve of menstruation.
Maccabi Haifa talked about the psychological aspect, which will be very significant tonight, no less than the professional aspect. In Haifa, they followed Betar Jerusalem, watched its 1: 2 on Thursday against Maccabi Netanya and the club knows that they are facing a difficult hurdle, but are sure that despite the lack of staff they can return with a victory. The professional team will ask the players to be patient during the game and Aware that the fact that Betar reached the last game after a forced break due to the Corona and its players put in a lot of effort, may be an advantage.
“It is very important not to get stressed, we have to stay alert. We are equal in every game and if we know how to play correctly in the defensive part then we will also win,” the team said.
Barak Bachar will have to make do tonight Without Yannick Wildshot Suffering from a hamstring strain and without Nikita Rokavica who returned yesterday for personal training with a ball. Defender Taleb Twataha, who was injured in the derby, will not play either. On the other hand, good news came from the sideline of Charon Sherry who conducted two training sessions and may start in the squad. If not, Donio who scored during the derby will rise to the occasion. Another line is the approval that Muhammad Awad received from isolation and he has already joined Maccabi Haifa’s training and a decision on whether to include him in the squad will be made near the game.
Last year the Greens failed to beat the rival in Jerusalem. In the second round they surrendered 2-0 when Sherry missed a penalty. During the playoffs, the teams parted ways in a 2: 2 draw. In fact the Greens’ last win in an away game against the team from the capital was in the 2016/17 season when they enjoyed a goal from Gili Vermouth.
