After last night's victory against Hapoel Ramat Gan, Maccabi Tel Aviv have begun a week of preparations for the upcoming Tel Aviv Derby

A day after the 1-3 victory over Hapoel Ramat Gan at the "Moshava" Stadium that sent them to the top of the "Winner" League table, the squad of Maccabi Tel Aviv returned this morning to training for next week's Tel Aviv Derby against Hapoel Tel Aviv. All the players who spent the full 90 minutes on the pitch, including goal scorers Eliran Atar and Maharan Radi, held a post-match session while the rest of the squad had a full practice. Striker Robert Earnshaw, who was substituted in the first half after injuring a quadriceps in his right leg, will be examined by the medical staff to determine the severity of his injury. Tomorrow the team players will have the day off but the rest of the week the practices will intensify in the run up to the Derby against Hapoel Tel Aviv next Sunday, including a final practice on Saturday.
