Maccabi Tel Aviv will complete its preparations today (Sunday) for the match tomorrow against Maccabi Netanya, a victory in which will reduce the gap with the leader Maccabi Haifa to only 5 points.
New midfielder Raresh Ilya, should get first minutes, but is not expected to start in the lineup.
Coach Itor Karanka held a press conference this morning before the game and said: "It's much easier to play at your home, with the crowd and with much more confidence, but when you're in a club like Maccabi Tel Aviv you have to win every game away as well.
We know that we will play against a very good team, but we will not come thinking that a point will be good for us, only a win and three points.
We will have to give 100 percent and not make mistakes."
Karanka added: "We need to approach the games and play all the time like we played against Maccabi Haifa. We created situations against Sakhnin even without Oskar Gloch. I can't say anything to Zahavi and Jovanovic if they missed because they work every second like animals on the field and usually they score I'll be worried if we don't create these situations, but with players like Eran Zahavi, George Yovanovic, Parfa Goyagon, Gabi Kanikovski, Dor Peretz and Eyal Golsa, I'm not worried at all."
Jovanovic also spoke on Masat and said: "We want to win every game, but you can't score 5 or 6 every game.
We didn't play badly against Sakhnin, but the misses cost us two points.
I feel good with Zahavi, we scored 24 goals together.
I give 100 percent every game and want to score as much as possible.
All of us in the team believe that it is possible to win the championship.
If we win all the games until the end we will win the championship"
were we wrong
We will fix it!
