Summary: Maccabi Tel Aviv - Bnei Sakhnin 1:1 (Sport1)
Aitor Karanka may think that the main problem of the Maccabi Tel Aviv players is the attitude, and he also talked about this with them last night (Saturday) in the dressing room at Bloomfield at the end of the draw against Bnei Sakhnin, but other sources in Maccabi Tel Aviv claim this morning that the team's last problem in yesterday's game was the attitude.
"This is not the first time that we are not successful against a team that is packed with nine players on its 16," say Maccabi Tel Aviv.
"We have a cluster of problems because of games like this when we're behind, we don't know how to win. We don't benefit from projections in our favor, we don't know how to score a goal from a stationary situation, we have a lot of difficulty doing one-on-one actions and with the exception of Eran Zahavi, who among us knows how to score a goal from a distance?".
Karanka held a tough meeting for the Maccabi Tel Aviv players: "You came without passion"

The deficiencies as mentioned gain a different effect, when the team falls behind and then the opponent has a higher motivation not to concede.
"We cannot afford to get bogged down in games like this," Maccabi Tel Aviv said this morning.
"Even if it's harder to score, even if the balls don't go in and even if we're having a bad day offensively, you have to kill yourself and not concede. The ease with which Guy Melamed scored his goal is so annoying."
Karanka, who came with a lot of expectations, in the meantime made a big victory in the season game against Maccabi Haifa and thus breathed a spirit of hope in Kiryat Shalom, but alongside that great game two weeks ago, Karanka's Maccabi Tel Aviv has already drawn three results.
Against Beitar Jerusalem, in the derby against Hapoel Tel Aviv and last night Maccabi Tel Aviv of the Basque lost 6 points already.

"We got ourselves into a new crisis out of nothing and in the next round we have a super difficult away game against Maccabi Netanya," said a player in the team last night.
"We already thought after Maccabi Haifa that here we are again strong in the race after we offset the gap to five points, but we kicked the bucket at the most important moments."
Another source at the club said: "It was enough to lose the championship when Maccabi Haifa was excellent and we couldn't catch up with it, but we had already beaten Haifa and opened the battle and then we failed with a loss of four points in a week. It was not perceived that we should have had the same points today as Maccabi Haifa, but Again, we will have to hope that we will have a renewed chance for the championship."
