Maccabi Haifa

About 18,000 Maccabi Haifa fans are expected to arrive tomorrow at Teddy Stadium for the match against Hapoel Jerusalem (Saturday, 18:30, Sport4), an unimaginable amount of fans who will make the way to the capital of Israel and hope to celebrate another victory on the way to a third championship in a row.

Maccabi Haifa fans are preparing decorations for the game and this will include the distribution of fabrics in green and white colors, with the goal that half of the fans will wear green and the other half will wear white.

Maccabi Haifa asked the fans to arrive early to Teddy to avoid pressure at the entrances.



On the professional side, Maccabi Haifa will be missing the outstanding stopper Abdulai Sek, who is carrying five yellow cards, while Rami Gershon may start next to Dylan Batinsica in the center of defense.

In addition, there is a debate as to whether to give Fernze Piero the team shirt, go with Dean David, or whether to shift Dia Saba to the striker position.

Ali Muhammad is expected to return to the lineup, while Muhammad Abu Fani is also planned to start: "It is true that the gap is eight points, but we have three very difficult away games before us, which means that nothing is closed and this is the approach we are coming with," said the club.



At the same time as the championship fight, Maccabi Haifa continues to deal with the future of Barak Becher.

The conditions of the coach at Red Star are known and now the Serbs are waiting for his final approval.

Bachar was also informed about the budget that the Red Star set for bringing in his team, which includes Guy Sarfati, Guy Weisinger and Dror Shimson.

Maccabi Haifa will talk to Bachar about the issue only after the championship is secured, but it goes without saying that a victory over Hapoel Jerusalem is expected to advance the talks and may lead to an official offer from Red Star Belgrade right now.

Trivia

* Hapoel Jerusalem was the first team this season to beat Maccabi Haifa in the league (0:3 in the fifth round) and now wants a second home win in a row over the Greens - something that hasn't happened since the mid-70s.

So, the Jerusalemites won 0:1 in June 1974 and sent Maccabi Haifa to tests on the way to relegation, and again 0:1 in March 1976, after the greens returned to the top league.



* Hapoel Jerusalem comes after two consecutive victories.

The last time she was in such a situation this season, she extended the streak with the same 0:3 against Maccabi Haifa.



* Since then, by the way, Ziv Aryeh's team won only once more at home (0:1 against Ness Ziona) out of 11 games.



* Maccabi Haifa made six turnovers this season and scored 20 points from behind - more than any other team in the league.



* The champions won only one of their last five away games (0:1 against Hapoel Tel Aviv) and conceded two treys during them (out of three such all season).
