Maccabi Haifa

After the "home" game against Rennes in Hungary, and before the meeting with Villarreal on Wednesday, Maccabi Haifa will host Hapoel Be'er Sheva for their first meeting this season (Sunday, 20:30). Coach Masai said: "It's a very difficult game against an opponent like us who wants to get closer to the top. We come from a tough game in Europe and return to the league, which is really our bread, we have to do everything to keep the points in Sammy Ofer."

Dego added on the significance of home games during the war: "The last home game was against Panathinaikos with 30,9 greens. It's another player on the pitch, it's very difficult for us but that's the situation. Maccabi Haifa vs. Hapoel Be'er Sheva is not just another game in Israeli football, but in front of empty stands it's neither fun nor simple."

On the busy period, Dego said: "We played Thursday, tomorrow, Wednesday in Spain, Sunday against Beitar Jerusalem and then we go to Greece. We have 30 games in <> days, I don't know if there was such a thing in Israel. We will use them all, I believe in every player here."

Goalkeeper Sherif Kioff added: "It's not an easy game at all, especially during a period when it's a bit busy. We know that Hapoel Be'er Sheva is a strong team and that this is its first game since the beginning of the war, we come focused and want to win."

Hapoel Be'er Sheva

There is a lot of deliberation in Hapoel Be'er Sheva regarding some positions ahead of tomorrow's return to the Premier League game against Maccabi Haifa. During the long period in which they did not play football in Israel, the team's injured recovered, including goalkeeper Ofir Marciano, and now Elinav Barda will have to think carefully about which players he brings up in the lineup. In the last game before Black Saturday, Hapoel Be'er Sheva beat Hapoel Jerusalem with Niv Eliassi displaying good ability in goal on the way to a smooth victory. It is believed that Breda will return to Marciano tomorrow but things have not yet been finalized.

Another dilemma is between Iyad Abu Obeid and Mariano Barreiro at the central defender position next to Miguel Vitor. In midfield and attack, too, there are a variety of options for manning the positions, and only after today's concluding training will the coach Hapoel Be'er Sheva have a more precise direction.

What bothers Hapoel Be'er Sheva ahead of tomorrow is the fact that only in the last training sessions does the team train with a full squad after all the foreigners have returned. Another thing the club mentions are the poor training games that Hapoel Be'er Sheva had during the long break. "Maccabi Haifa has been running and playing for the past month and we are starting everything anew and it is a big puzzle how we will return to the league," the club said this morning.

One way or another, this is one of the toughest away games in the league, but when there is no crowd in the stands and when Maccabi Haifa arrives after a bad game in Europe and a difficult week due to the sign affair, Hapoel Be'er Sheva will aim for victory in order not to lose more points. Before the break, the team lost points in a loss to Hapoel Petah Tikva and in two draws against Bnei Reina and Hapoel Tel Aviv.

Trivia

* The record between the teams in the Premier League in the 2000s is 10:33 to Maccabi Haifa in wins (including three on zero in the last three home games) and 12 draws. In the last encounter, Hapoel Be'er Sheva won 1-2 through a goal by Mariano Barreiro in the 96th minute, before the big fuss at Turner. Even then, the judge was Roy Reinschreiber.

* Nine years ago, the two met in the sixth round, and then Hapoel Be'er Sheva won 0-2 at Wassermil. The only survivor of that game was Roy Gordana, who then set the final score with a rocket to the connections, after Shlomi Arbeitman's first goal. His coach Elinav Barda then missed a penalty.

* Maccabi Haifa, which was the best home team in the league last season and dropped only two points, equalized this record with losing two points already in its first home game this season (1:1 against Bnei Sakhnin).

* Hapoel Be'er Sheva, which was the best away team in the league last season, has yet to win five games in all competitions: a draw and a loss in Europe, a loss in the Toto Cup and a draw and a loss in the league.
