Drikhi in Maccabi Netanya: "A game that can turn our season around" | Israel today


The improvement in defense in the last few games, the desire to win a significant title, for the first time since the 82/83 season and the vigilance of the professional team √ Maccabi Netanya arrives tonight ready for the Toto Cup final against Hapoel Beer Sheva

It may not be the most coveted title, there isn't too much buzz and excitement around it, but be sure that Maccabi Netanya and Hapoel Beer Sheva really want to win the Toto Cup tonight for the 2022/23 season, only that in the case of the Diamonds, the desire to lift the third title is much greater.

True, Netanya won the Toto Cup of the National League in 2004/5, but if we skip the title from the second division, then the last time Maccabi Netanya fans celebrated winning a title when they were in the Premier League was in the last championship in the 1982/83 season, about 40 years ago.

Coach Ran Kozhuk made it clear to the players how important this title is to the club and the fans when he said: "Bringing a title is something that is important to us as a team, as a club, and we want to make everyone happy."

One of the players added: "A title is a title - even if it's a title from a plastic trophy. It's a game that can do good for everyone."

Bennetanya also believes that a victory over BS, the great nemesis of the last few years, will greatly affect the rest of the season. They will believe in themselves that it is possible to meet our goals this season as well and be in the top playoffs."

Even if BS does not field its strongest lineup, it is still a favorite against Netanya, and in order for Kozuk's team to be able to surprise, it needs its defensive unit at its peak. In the last four games - three in the league and one in the cup - Netanya has conceded only one goal, after Yes, she suffered a lot, and when the biggest humiliation was the sixth against Beitar Jerusalem.

This is attributed in Netanya to the improvement of the pair of brakes Pelman Glavov and Raz Shlomo.

"Both Pelman and Raz were not good most of the season," say Netanya, "but Pelman is starting to come back to himself, and Raz is starting to look like last year. If they continue like this, the defense will continue to stabilize."
