Following the 2:2 draw at Sammy Ofer Stadium against Maccabi Haifa, Maccabi Tel Aviv is already thinking about Hapoel Beer Sheva this coming Saturday night. The Yellow & Blue midfielder, Yossi Benayoun met his former team and summed up the match: “We’re disappointed to drop points but we’re also happy to have found the tying goal in the 91st minute.”

About the match that was:

“Maccabi Haifa opened up the match well against us. We didn’t control the ball and they almost doubled their lead. At the end of the half I had a major miss. In the second half we took control from the get go and we were much better. Of course we were disappointed when we went down 2:1, but I was sure we would score. The fact that we came back shows a lot of character on Vidar’s part that he scored a brace and was fantastic in the second half.”

Hapoel Beer Sheva:

“We have a big game in Saturday. The gap is now 8 points but if we can win, we’ll get back into the race.”
