Find the direction: On the evening of the Tel Aviv and Haifa teams | Israel Today


The significant shortcomings in Klinger's defense were felt and on the other hand Barak Bachar once again showed what a huge difference there is between the defenses in the league and that of the Greens.


The return leg The backlog of summons summoned us to a double urban battle between Tel Aviv and Haifa. , Looking at the urban rival from above.

Nir Klinger, who changed lineup during the season and moved to three brakes, suffered significant defenses on defense (Gottlieb, Traore and Leidner) and therefore had to improvise with two connections as brakes (Hoffmeister and Elias) and also freeze Danny Gruper, who did not play a minute from the start of the season.

Bachar, on the other hand, gave credit to Ben Shehar in the attack, at only the second time this season, with Shari, Muhammad and Abu Fani playing behind him in the link.

Klinger's improvisations and insistence on the lineup even though he does not have the right players for him, hit the team and made it look confused on defense and directionless on offense.

On the other hand, Maccabi Haifa once again showed what a huge difference there is between the defenses in the league, which Haifa's attack is big on in some numbers, to those it met in the home stage in Europe, where it scored one goal in five games.

Noble and Cherry equalize a goal in every league game, when Dean David comes off the bench and the opponent plays a high defensive line because she wants to return to the game, he can be deadly and thanks to the diversity in the senior squad there are options to change styles while playing and playing with lots of offensive tools.

A point of concern for Haifa is the striker's position.

Ben Shehar, at this stage of his career, does not seem like a solution and there is a feeling that in January both sides will think about continuing the match between them, and it is difficult for David and Donio to be significant in the face of crowded defenses playing low, defenses Haifa meets in many cases in our league.

Bachar can play without a striker and lie in this position with Cherry or Noble, or hope that in January a significant player will reach this position that will make Haifa, at least at the level of our league, unstoppable. 


Maccabi Tel Aviv has been in a standstill for a long time. An administrative standstill, which has stuck with no real professional manager for three years or more without a permanent coach, plus a professional standstill, which turned record-breaking defense into a weak league within two years. Patrick van Leven, who was conservative and unimaginative tactically, which made good players look lost and helpless and these are mostly wingers.

The dismissal of the Dutchman is the best thing that happened to the players of the wing of Maccabi Tel Aviv, who received permission to leave the lines and spread their wings (a choice of words is not accidental).

Brandy Quas for example, is a player who is equal in our league involved in 15-20 goals and since the departure of Van Leven he has been providing numbers in every game.

His cooking for Ben Haim at the second goal, showed how the tactical fixation hit Maccabi Tel Aviv and how much she needed this change.

The victory of Maccabi Tel Aviv pinned it to the top three and with every weak season opener, it is only 6 points behind the champion Maccabi Haifa and 8 after BS, which means that the championship is still a possibility, there is enough good player material and now only needs a coach to fix The business.

The question is when Goldhaar will bring him.
