"We did not play football so well before the playoffs last season, it was a huge victory," they say this morning (Sunday) at Maccabi Tel Aviv, which returned to the league in a big way, after yesterday's victory over champions Maccabi Haifa.
Yellows have every reason in the world to be happy.
Ophir Davidzada, perhaps in his best game in the Maccabi Tel Aviv uniform, provided a great display last night and made it clear that Enrique Sborit was injured. .
And there were many more bright spots for the runner-up.
Dan Glazer also showed against Haifa that he is the owner of the house in the center of the field.
Daniel Peretz received compliments for another good display between the posts: "He had great saves in his first big game against a full stadium and I'm happy for him," said Patrick van Leven.
Striker Stepa Fritza has won a third game in a row and so far he is seen as the Yellows' bingo "he is easily worth 15 goals a season," Maccabi said of him.

And there was another player who gave a great game in the Clasico and this is the captain of the Yellows, Sharan Yeni, who even cooked for the break goal.
"We do not like to be eulogized," Yeni said, "I always hope not to get the slap at first and then wake up, but unfortunately that is what happened to us. Now we have to wake up fast and run forward. We are always a team of character and a very cohesive team even when we do not go ".
Yeni added: "We will come to win every game and give 100% effort for it to happen. You could say I am at the end of my career, of course I want to play as many years as possible, but playing games like this with an almost full stadium gives me drive."
