Summary: Maccabi Tel Aviv - Hapoel Beer Sheva 0:1 (Sport 1)

After the 0:1 against Hapoel Be'er Sheva broke a streak of three league games without a win, Maccabi Tel Aviv wants to generate momentum in the last stretch of the regular season and stay close to the team from the Negev capital and Maccabi Haifa.

The next hurdle that awaits the Yellows is the Ness Ziona section from the bottom, where they will be hosted this Saturday (5:30 p.m., Sport4).

If they win, the team from Kiryat Shalom will rise to second place for at least two days, until Be'er Sheva hosts Bnei Rayna for the second.

Before the game, Karanka appeared at a press conference, saying: "The pressure is always the same. There is pressure to improve, to win games. In clubs like this you know he is always there. I am not worried, I have confidence in the team and I think the game against Ness Ziona in the first round should be a wake-up call for everyone , because even against 10 and 9 players, the team could not win. The players know the opponent better than I do, if we think it will be easy - that would be a mistake.

The Spaniard commented on the offer Eran Zahavi received from Chicago Fire from the MLS: "I haven't seen him yet, but Eran is from Maccabi Tel Aviv. I want him and I'm sure he'll be here. I didn't know about the offer, because I was thinking about Ness Ziona."

He also added ahead of Ness Ziona: "It won't be an easy game, even if we score early on. We will try to dominate and score as quickly as possible, but even if we don't succeed we will have to keep going. I tell the fans, as always, that we do our best. Football is hard , see in the Champions League this week teams that do not play at the level that is expected of them."

Ofir Davidzade also spoke: "There is always pressure, it is true that the victory over Be'er Sheva was super critical for the rest of the season and very significant in order to meet our goals, but pressure is positive, in a big club there is always and you have to know how to deal with it. Maccabi always wants to go as far as possible, this The standard of the team and the players," said the defender, "Kranka brought with him a very great and positive energy, he is a coach who has been through a lot in his career and you can see our fighting spirit and standing on the field. Little by little we are getting to know his methods and tactics, he has not been in the team long and as time goes by, We'll look better."

Davidzadeh admitted: "There is a bit of instability in the last few games and you can see it in the results, we don't want that. Maccabi has been stable in the results in recent years, which is where we strive. We work hard in training to get the results we want, I think since December we haven't scored two victories - that's The goal. There is no doubt that in terms of ability we were not good enough in the last few games, except for Beer Sheva. The worst thing in the world is to come into a game in this league comfortable, we can eat the cap at the end of the game. You see that even the big teams have been losing points lately. There are no easy games, you have to come with The highest motivation and to understand that the goal is only victory."
