Israeli Clubs Continue Training
On Saturday Maccabi Tel-Aviv, Hapoel Tel-Aviv, and Maccabi Haifa all won their practice games. Maccabi Tel-Aviv beat Danish club Brondby 4-1, and looked impressive doing so. Haris Medunjanin, Yuval Avidor, Tzion Tzemah, and Nisso Kapiloto all scored for Maccabi. Barak Itzhaki didn’t not play but should do so today against Gent. Meanwhile Maccabi Haifa finished up their camp in Austria by beating Austria Wien 2-1. Vladimir Dvalishvili and Shlomi Arbeitman scored for the Yerukim in the win. Left back Taleb Tawatha has impressed in camp and will likely replace Peter Masilela. Hapoel Tel-Aviv beat Levski Sofia 1-0 in a game that they dominated. Itay Shechter had the lone goal on the counter-attack. Hapoel received good news as Douglas Da Silva looks to return for another season. This is a huge boost for the Reds who are now looking for a striker to complete their squad before Champions League Qualifying begins.
