The 0: 1 summary of Maccabi Tel Aviv over Maccabi Petah Tikva (Sport 1)

Maccabi Tel Aviv's first victory last night was recorded shortly before the opening kick-off at the Moshava Stadium, with the news of Andre Geralds' expected comeback.

Since the departure of the Portuguese Maccabi Tel Aviv has not known how to deal with the hole he left in the right defensive position, and his return will solve a lot of headaches and create more opportunities for Patrick Van Leven in defense.

The fact that Geralds signed for a year and a half indicates that the Yellows do not want to take risks.

For next season it is better for them to arrive with a right defender instead of getting involved in unnecessary adventures.



But the news lies not only in the return, but in the fact that Geraldesh preferred Maccabi Tel Aviv over Maccabi Haifa.

The Greens were mentioned as strong candidates to join the Portuguese, and he finally chose the organization he left just less than half a year ago.

In a season like this, in which Maccabi Haifa shows professional superiority, it was a small and encouraging V in Kiryat Shalom.

A small V that has joined other small wins from the recent period and created interesting momentum in the last two weeks.

He returns: Andre Geralds will land in Israel and sign with Maccabi Tel Aviv

Football is a game that in recent years has become a more accurate science than ever.

Like any other sport, team or individual, it also relies on measurable technologies.

A player cannot bluff in the amount of miles gamma in the game, in the number of ball saves or in the amount of threats on goal.

This is no longer the same "tip of the shoe" of Shlomo Sharaf from the early nineties.

I mean, it's true - luck still plays a big role, but today even luck has attached sensors, data and advanced statistics.



Only one thing can not be measured yet: energy on the grass.

I mean, you can feel when a player is more or less energetic, when he is nervous and when he is calm, but there are no numbers that express that exactly.

Energy still relies on sensations, and with sensations do not enter data into the transfer market.



It seems that in the last week it has been possible to measure the energy level of Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Maybe not exactly, but if you guessed it in numbers, with Georgius Donis he was under five.

With Patrick Van Leven he has been at least 8 since the opening whistle for the derby.

Even if it's not reflected in the cracks - it's there.

My imaginary parameter last night measured no less than 8.5, sometimes even reaching 9.

Everything looks different.

Take Tal Ben Haim.

He lost quite a bit of his first step, the one that allowed him to scorch defenders on the line.

Van Leven placed him in the first half in the colony on the right, the wing he likes less.

In a second he moved it to the left, when it was already worn, until it was replaced.

Ben Haim was not good this time either, provided one kick that threatened Eric Janko, a lot to lose and overall was mediocre.

And yet, the effort, the effort, the communication with the group - everything was there and everything looked different.

Strange how from a distance of a few dozen meters you can see an actor doing the same actions he did before, for better or worse, but with such different motivation.



Maccabi Tel Aviv demonstrated its best game of the season yesterday in Petah Tikva for 60 minutes.

This claim arose here even after the derby, but in the derby, and the honor of the 0: 4 in its place lay, the champion did not play against a team in its league.

Yesterday she met a top team that in the first round made her life miserable and also subdued her.

Her big test came and this time she did not fail.

Until yesterday, Maccabi Tel Aviv did not beat any rival, including Maccabi Petah Tikva, which is in the top five in the table.



Now that that's happened, maybe she can announce a new path.

Has not yet found a solution for coverage in the wide areas in the part of his plot.

Those were 60 Ivy minutes, relatively.

Maccabi Tel Aviv moved a ball, controlled, risked, went out for smooth bursts.

She still can't find the goal in the first half, but it will come too.

This was a determined, patient, focused Maccabi Tel Aviv.

The defense is not what it used to be, and despite all the motivation and improvement in ability, with a little concentration Liel Abda would have had a strong snack once and maybe twice and maybe even three and four even before going down to the break.

Van Leven has yet to find a solution to cover the wide areas in his part of the pitch, with the slow brakes not relying on their speed, preferring to retreat instead of going for the ball and ordering attacks.

Dan Glazer is not what he used to be and his replacement, which resulted from an injury at all, was true regardless of it.

Still, this was a different Maccabi Tel Aviv than the one we saw just a little over two weeks ago, with no shorts in the media.

With the slowness they will already be dealing.



Around the 60th minute, Maccabi Petah Tikva took over the game.

Equality was in the air.

Daniel Tennenbaum proved in those minutes once again that the question of the egg and the chicken that accompanied him last year no longer exists.

It is no longer "not clear if he is good or if the defense makes him like that", he is just a last stop and maybe the best goalkeeper in Israel today.

He did not record a particularly big save, but provided the small saves, the soothing presence and the nuances that made the difference and kept the win.

On the other hand, Janko gave a perfect game that included a dream save, until he really dreamed behind three players who hid him and collected the ball from the net.



So maybe Maccabi Tel Aviv dominated only two-thirds of the game, but a nice hour of tactical football reminiscent of oblivion was also there, and even a Van Leven replacement that turned out, with quite a bit of luck, as bingo.

Now the question arises as to how long the champion will be able to maintain this energy level.

I well remember the movie from 2016/17.

With a considerable amount of irony, it can be said that the improvement of Maccabi Tel Aviv actually helps Maccabi Haifa.

For the first time this season, after a full round, the leader sees her deputy clearly in the mirror, without being surrounded by a mash-up of idle rivals.

Although 8 points is a nice gap, Barak Bachar remembers the film from 2016/17 well, then led Maccabi Tel Aviv by a gap of 10 points that shrank to 3, before returning to a double-digit difference.

The yellow awakening can certainly help his team move up more focused for the upcoming games, having suffered a drop in tension on Saturday against Hadera.

Tonight, against Yossi Aboksis' Hapoel Beer Sheva, she will need all the concentration in the world.



If Maccabi Tel Aviv passes Bnei Yehuda and Maccabi Netanya in peace (and despite the improvement it is still very uncertain), it will reach a meeting with Maccabi Haifa in exactly two weeks with a feeling that the gap is closed.

For this game Geralds is expected to come up.

Chances are on the other hand we will see Noble Omar.

Each side will come with its own little January victory.

One side can come out with a win of an entire season.
