The Maccabi Haifa coach spoke ahead of the meeting with Red Star Belgrade and also commented on the non-postponement against Sakhnin: "We have seen in other places that they consider and postpone games" • On the opponent tomorrow: "It will be a difficult game, but we are confident, there is a strong team here and we are sure that we will fight"

Maccabi Haifa will host Red Star Belgrade tomorrow at the Sami Ofer Stadium for the first game in the Champions League playoffs (10:00 p.m.).

About 30 thousand tickets were sold and they generated a handsome income of over NIS 3 million.

Coach Barak Becher didn't practice the team in yesterday's training and he didn't do it in the final training either.

 At the same time, it is estimated that Becher will continue with the 11 that defeated Olympiakos and Apollon Limassol 0:4.

This means that Dean David and Franzi Piero will continue in the wing, while Mohamed Abu Fani and Omar Atzili are expected to come up as substitutes.

In the green club there is an extraordinary vigilance and a clear goal to advance to the group stage of the Champions League for the first time since 2009.

On Red Star Belgrade, he added: "This is a very strong team. It's not just that they are in this class and ranked in this round. They are a diverse team, can play in many ways with experienced players. It will be a difficult game, but we are confident, there is a strong team here and there will be a fight, I'm sure ".

Bacher was asked if the loss to Limassol will affect him for tomorrow because he showed up for the previous match and the coach replied: "What is it that I didn't show up? I was wearing a white shirt, jeans. And seriously, I think you are exaggerating a bit with the 'no show up'. It should have been 2: 5 in our favor and in the end we managed to get past a good team. There is a tendency here to underestimate the champions from other places. Obviously, there are conclusions from every game. Every game gives us a lesson and I, as a coach, learn too. Overall, the atmosphere is good and we want to take another step forward."

Regarding the meeting tomorrow, Becher said: "Obviously, we want to play our game. We also wanted to start strong against Olympiakos, but we conceded a goal. There are mature and experienced players here. Even in Limassol, despite a difficult situation, I saw the players react well. I am confident in the players that this will be the case as well Time".

On the absence of Ali Muhammad and Charon Sherry in the previous game and their significance tomorrow, he said: "Sherry and Ali, beyond their professional importance, are also in good shape. I'm glad we didn't risk Sherry in the last split and we got through the game without him. He affects the game with leadership, intensity and everything All around. He has an important task tomorrow, he likes it and I have no doubt that he will bring what is needed of himself."

Bacher was furious that his team did not postpone Saturday's league game against Bnei Sakhnin, while other clubs in Europe at this stage did, and said: "It sucks that I have to address this before such an important game for the club. It's a shame that it's like this. We've seen in other places that consider and postpone games and On Shabbat we will come and give our best, but there really is no place for that."

Midfielder Charon Sherry added: "This week we received a lot of information about them. We prepared for everything that needs to happen in the game and we are also ready to enjoy this special moment."

About his ability with and without the ball, the Dutchman said: "A lot of people like me with the ball, but I also like to pressure other players and that's also what we'll see tomorrow. That's my style."

About his fitness for tomorrow he said: "I had a little problem with my back muscle but I feel much better and I'm ready. I missed one game and of course I'll be ready for the game tomorrow. I'm not sure if I'm in the best shape of my career, but I feel good and can still be good More".

Sherry was asked about the fact that he arrived 3 years ago and talked about championships and struggles in Europe and they said he was crazy and replied: "I'm a good guy but sometimes crazy. I always think big and if you don't think big you don't get there. This is my motivation and I've been waiting for his time for a very long time."

Sherry was asked to respond to the words of Alexander Peshich, ex-Maccabi Tel Aviv, who did not understand how Maccabi Haifa won the championship and said: "We only concentrate on our team.

We have so much quality and we won the championship with it.

I don't really care what others think."
