Summary: Hapoel Be'er Sheva - Hapoel Tel Aviv 0:0/Sport1
Hapoel Be'er Sheva finished a few minutes ago with a goalless home draw against Hapoel Tel Aviv, in a game in which it often missed against ten of its opponents following the removal of Yam Kanzpolsky in the first half and all its attempts were unsuccessful, so like its opponent it was left with only one victory in the Premier League at the end of the opening three rounds. At the same time, with less than 48 hours left to close the transfer window, Lavala! Sport has learned that the Negev capital is making a last-minute move to add Maccabi Netanya striker Igor Zlatanovich.
For the sake of adding the Serbian striker, who throughout the summer there have been attempts to sell him and after this did not materialize he returned to the lineup and scored yesterday in the Diamonds' victory over Hapoel Petah Tikva, Hapoel Be'er Sheva must release one of the six foreigners or freeze in order to add the striker, who is still expected to leave Maccabi Netanya soon. If he does join, Hapoel Be'er Sheva will probably give up Faun, who today only came off the bench towards the end.

After the game, Barda was asked about the status of Tomer Hamad, who watched from the stands, and clarified: "This is a professional decision. What we're missing more is running deep. I have a lot of respect for Hamad. It doesn't come from a place of humiliation that is outside the squad. At the moment, a situation has arisen, and that's how we chose to deal with it. I believe in this squad, I will always believe and support the players. We will grow new ones, we will create new ones."
On the disappointing draw: "Being in control, creating situations, chances and in the end not winning is frustrating, but that's football. I always want to win, I always want to play the best football possible, certainly with a full stadium. You can't cry about 'too bad', we had enough situations in Reina too. There was a lack of quality, we put up all possible tools to win, the team defended with 10 players. We did everything right except the game through the sides."
On the rest of the season and the way to climb to the top: "We played good football today. Hapoel Tel Aviv has an excellent attack that did not threaten us. In terms of attitude we gave everything. Goal? Get the most out of the squad we have, for sure it will come to us and lead us to good places. What was missing? Put the ball in the net. I'm not happy, I'm the most frustrated in the world."

According to the coach, Alon Turgeman added: "Apart from putting the ball in the net, I left everything on the field. There are days when we do everything right and we got into situations, as a striker it's the most frustrating. It's time for you to shoot at me, I'll take responsibility, I've never experienced an atmosphere like this, I promise the fans that I'll give many more goals here. A league is a road, and there's still a long way to go. We don't have time, on Saturday there is another game and there we will have to take the points and score.
"Both against 11 players and against 10, we dominated the field absolutely," Turgeman continued, adding about the wasted time, "Yesterday they talked about it too, I don't like to talk about the opponent taking too much time, but maybe the referees should add a little more. It's not an excuse, I didn't score today and I promise it will come in a big way."
On the lack of punch, he concluded: "I am a pioneer, this is my goal and my job, but we are all as one. We are a team, there is a long way to go and in the end we will look all the way and draw conclusions. I did everything, bullets whistled near the beams. We washed the field."
