The Greens begin to digest the loss of points against Ashdod: "It's a shame we lost the defense. We had to score at least two goals in the first half" • Dolev Hizza midfielder is expected to qualify for Monday's game at Turner
Losing critical points for Maccabi Haifa yesterday in Sami Ofer against Ashdod
Big disappointment in Maccabi Haifa after the home draw in front of MS Ashdod (3: 3). While the Greens equalized in the 90th minute from Arad's goal, the club said: "It was a completely one-sided game. The result is lying. We had to score at least two goals in the first half out of dozens of situations."
They added in Haifa: "The defense was promiscuous. Ashdod took advantage of all three situations she reached." The draw against Ashdod interrupts Haifa with a four-game victory when on Monday the team leaves for a tough game outside Hapoel.
Ofri Arad protested to his teammates about the scandal that had been discontinued after his alleged failure on the Ashdod player. "There was not even a touch," Arad told his friends. "I was sure the video judges would overturn the decision." The case study shows that the video judges were not unequivocally clear that there was no Pendel and therefore did not draw the attention of Judge Snir Levy.
On another issue, the squash-leaning midfielder who cooked twice yesterday and was replaced due to muscle cramps is likely to be fit for the next game. "I promise we won't go back like in previous years," said Hizza, who excelled in the game. Beyond that, Coach Marco Confusion will make a change or two in the lineup for Monday. Pioneer Jordan Shua is one of the candidates to enter the lineup.
