Summary: Maccabi Tel Aviv - Adana Demirspor 3:6 (Sport1)
Maccabi Tel Aviv returned to Israel last night (Monday) close to midnight after an eight-day camp in Antalya and already this evening will hold a first training session in Kiryat Shalom.
During the camp, the team held two training games in which they won and showed good ability in relation to returning from a layoff of over a week.
Coach Vladan Ivic was satisfied with the attitude of the players and the quick acclimatization in the camp after the vacation the team received with the opening of the World Cup.
During the camp, Ivic will practice another formation besides the one he usually places since the beginning of the season, but even in the second formation, the Serbian continued to place three brakes in the center of the defense.
Matan Huzoz has been tried as a right defender on the whole line, showed good ability and may get credit as early as tomorrow in the Toto Cup against Hapoel Jerusalem in this position (Wednesday, 20:00, Sport4).
Thorgan was deployed as a right defender in a formation of 3 brakes.

The one who raised his stock during the camp is Dor Turgeman who did not get credit from the beginning of the season, but was one of the best on the team and may get minutes from now on.
If Ivić does not use the young striker until the January transfer window, he is expected to go out on loan until the end of the season so as not to dry up for an entire season without games.
During the camp, Derek Lucassen suffered from an injury, but towards the end of the camp, he already trained fully and even took part as a substitute in the 3:6 victory over Adana Demirspor.
Dan Glazer, who suffered an injury about two weeks ago because of which he did not play in the national team's match against Cyprus, recovered during the camp and started in the last match.
Oskar Gluch continued to show high ability and Maccabi Tel Aviv is not thinking at all about the possibility that they will have to sell him in the next window.
The club sees tomorrow's game as another test of tools in preparation for the return to full and continuous activity.
Even before the return of the Premier League, Maccabi Tel Aviv is looking forward to the match against Umm Al Fahm in the State Cup on Sunday. As I recall, Maccabi Tel Aviv has enough reasons to think carefully and come seriously against the team from the National League that kicked Ivic and his players out of the second most important enterprise.
