Blackman (50) and Peretz (82) led the champion to an eighth consecutive victory that once again reduced the gap from Maccabi Haifa to 2 points • Phiben was sent off
Maccabi players are celebrating tonight with Sami Ofer
Lucky of champions?
Maccabi Tel Aviv continued its insane gallop and defeated Sami Ofer Hapoel Haifa, even though it was almost half full with ten players, and the gap from the leader Maccabi Haifa returned to only two points.
We did not see good football in the first half, despite a preference on the part of Patrick Van Leven's team, who missed out on good situations.
But the second half was much more interesting.
A goal with a shoulder by Nick Blackman was disqualified by Eli Hachmon, but thanks to the intervention of the VAR the goal was approved and rightly so.
The cloud's premier goal in the league for the English Jewish striker.
Immediately after that goal, Shahar Phiben was sent off and hence the game was controlled by Hapoel Haifa only.
Ido Shachar scored, but his goal was disqualified because he was disqualified after another VAR intervention, a borderline penalty to the right of the Reds was not burned, and above all, the host missed endlessly and saw up close the good ability of Daniel Tennenbaum.
Precisely in those minutes, when Haifa's goal was in the air, Dor Peretz managed to score the second, get the air out for Haim Sylves' players, and take such important points in a game of this kind as well.
