The Yellows are building on the quick click created between the center and the chin: "It could be a significant advantage at the start of the season."

Sapropoulos scolded Sorkin: "He has a lot of expectations from him, he wants to make him a significant player very quickly."

Maccabi Tel Aviv coach Yannis Sapropoulos talks about the pre-season (Maccabi Tel Aviv spokeswoman)

Last night (Wednesday), Maccabi Tel Aviv opened its appearances in the Winner's Cup on the right foot with a convincing 68:87 victory over Maccabi Rishon Lezion in the quarterfinals. Yannis Sapropoulos' team, in only its second preparation game for the start of the season next week, qualified for the semi-finals, where Hapoel Jerusalem will be waiting for it tomorrow (Friday, 14:30) in a very intriguing game.



Ante Žižić received many compliments for his ability in the first half, but most of the paragons received Yiftach Ziv in his first game for the team. The coordinator who came from Gilboa / Galil finished with 11 points and 6 assists, when his cooperation with Zizic would have seemed exceptional from the first moment. "It would have looked from the start like they've been playing together for a few years now," the club said proudly at the end, "if it continues to look like this, it will be a significant advantage for us in our uneasy season opener."



"We had good moments and also less good moments. We didn't start the game as well as we wanted, I loved the way we fought, I loved our energies. We have to keep working and things will connect for us," said captain John Dibertolomeo who finished with 8 points of his own. "Yiftach seven years ago in Haifa, I followed his career, I like his style of play and his energy, he jumped on balls, it's nice that he is next to me and not in front of me."

Despite the nice victory, which included almost 70 percent to 2 points and an excellent defense, Maccabi Tel Aviv are looking at the negative things to try and correct them ahead of the important game against Bayern Munich in a week from today. The main problems: 18 ball losses and very weak percentages outside the arc with 4 successful shots from 24 attempts.



During the fourth quarter, when the game was already completely over, Yannis Sapropoulos scolded Roman Sorkin who made a mistake on defense and allowed Guy Platin to score 2 easy points with an offense. One of the Maccabi men explained at the end that "Yannis has a lot of expectations from a novel, he thinks he can very quickly become a significant player in the team and he demands a lot from him."



The Yellows will have 13 senior players on the roster this season, which means that in every Euroleague game, one player will not be dressed. "When you come to Maccabi Tel Aviv you know that there is a deep staff. We know we have a lot of weapons and the coach uses a lot of different teams, it creates competition between the players to get better,"Said the club.



With the lack of coordination still felt in the attack, the team is waiting for a spicy game against Hapoel Jerusalem tomorrow.

"Hapoel Jerusalem is a good challenge for us, we want to keep moving forward and winning the Winner's Cup is something we want every season," said Dibertolmio.

High expectations from Sorkin.

The club will decide today whether to include Scotty Wilbkin in the game or not, with the tendency before the start of the games not to endanger him and Derek Williams and Jaylen Reynolds, in order to try to train them for Bayern Munich.

"Even if we decide not to endanger them, there will be disadvantages," the group said.
