// Danny Maron,
Patrick Van Leven looked very pleased and bitter after the game: "It's true, we had a lot of motivation. We lost to Maccabi Haifa at the beginning of the season, but we made changes and this time we looked better. There were moments tonight that Haifa was better, but we came back with better moments of our own. And an almost full stadium, we had to win. "
On the absence of Eduardo Guerrero from the squad: "I do not know how you know he should have started. We have a deep squad and everyone is competing for a place. Our success is a team success."

Maccabi Haifa coach Barak Bachar tried to understand what did not work: "We were less good, probably in the second half. I think I was a little late in the exchange, I wanted to stop the drift because their goal was in the air. We lost rightly."

Bachar added: "" We came as equals, not as favorites against an excellent team that was also better today and should be respected. We were not good enough. We were worth a makeover, but in the end in the second half we did not do well and there are no excuses. In any case, I am ready to take a championship every year without beating Maccabi Tel Aviv. "
