After two consecutive victories and an impressive score over Maccabi Haifa and Hapoel Beer Sheva, MS Ashdod was stopped tonight (Saturday) when they parted ways with Bnei Sakhnin 0-0. This time, Ran Ben Shimon’s team was much less impressive than in the last two games, had a very hard time and it can be said that Nisso Avitan’s trainees were superior, even though they did not shine, to say the least.
Ashdod played today without the injured Shlomi Azulai, and of course without Sagiv Yehezkel who left for Hapoel Beer Sheva at the end of the transfer window. Ramzi Spori made his debut, came on in the squad but was replaced in the 60th minute. Fahd Bayou, by the way, was injured and had to be replaced in the 40th minute by Yaakov Barihun.
Sakhnin, for its part, did not win but broke a streak of three consecutive losses. It temporarily climbed above the red line, to 12th place, with 19 points in the balance – one more than Hapoel Hadera from 13th place (missing game) and three more than the last Bnei Yehuda (two missing games).
As mentioned, Avitan’s team was better most of the time, but both teams had very few opportunities during the game. Not a single truly significant threat can be mentioned throughout the 90 minutes, perhaps with the exception of Ihab Ghanaim’s shot at the Ashdod goal from the corner in the 44th minute.
Towards the end and after a good start by Sakhnin for the second half, control returned to CBS Ashdod. The team from third place tried to develop attacks without success and did not translate the ball possession into situations. In the 94th minute, Sakhnin burst out, at the end of which Nigel Hasselbaink found Ataa Jaber who kicked a ball that was repulsed by Yoav Jaffy. Dayan Rakley continued from the rebound to the net up close easily, but was in a clear difference.
MS Ashdod: Yoav Jaffy, Tom Ben Zaken, Timothy Avani, Nenad Svetkovic, Monterey Kamahani, Roi Gordana, Musa Bagayoko (Shalev Harush, 60), Muhammad Canaan (Idan Dahan, 80), Ramzi Spori (Oz Bilu, 60), Dean David, Fahd Bayou (Yaakov Barihon, 40).
Bnei Sakhnin: Mahmoud Kandil, Ali Othman, Hagai Goldenberg, Maron Gentus, Yazan Nassar, Ihab Shami, Ihab Ghanaim, Biram Kiel, Ataa Jaber, Moti Bershetsky (Nigel Hasselbaink, 72), Osama Khalaila (Dayan Kelly, 82).
