Two more games remain for Maccabi Tel Aviv to end the 2019/20 season without loss. Coach Vladimir Ivich, who kept some of the players in front of the Betar Jerusalem ahead of the game against Maccabi Haifa (Saturday at 21:00), wants to break more records. Six points in the next two games will lead the champion to 90 points – the highest number in club history. Along the way, the Yellows will try to complete a seasonal sweep with a fourth win over Maccabi Haifa and, of course, save for the 29th time this season as part of the Clean Net League.
Professionally, Ibich seems to be rising in his strongest lineup. The three foreigners, Andre Geraldes, Jair Amador and Enrique Sobrit are expected to return to 11th, when Dan Glazer, who will be missing in the last round after absorbing 12 yellows this season, will return to midfield and rise alongside Eyal Gulsa and Avi Riken. It is estimated that Ibich will open with five defensive players, with Ite Schechter playing alongside Jonathan Cohen or Nick Blackman at Spitz. Daniel Tenenbaum may return at the expense of Andreas Ianniotis.
Meanwhile, earlier this morning, Turkish media reported that Maccabi Tel Aviv had approached Gen. Arkin. Bashiktash’s 31-year-old left-back defends his contract and will leave the Turkish luxury squad when the season ends, and Rangers have also reportedly submitted a player offer, with 53 appearances in the Turkish national team. In addition, it is also stated that Glatsray is also interested in Ex Inter. Another player mentioned about the Yellows is Nigerian striker Jordan Kadiri, who is also on the cusp of none other than Manchester City.
Estimated composition, Maccabi Tel Aviv: Daniel Tannenbaum; Andre Geraldes, Jair Amador, Ethan Tibby, Sharan Yaney, Enrique Savourit; Dan Glazer, Avi Riken, Eyal Golse; Jonathan Cohen (Nick Blackman), Itai Schechter.
