Maccabi Tel Aviv “Shahar,” the club’s under-19 youth team, hosted traditional arch-rivals Hapoel Tel Aviv in the city derby on a rainy Saturday in Ness Ziona.

It was a clash between Maccabi in third place and Hapoel, in second and was fairly evenly matched throughout, although neither side were sharp enough to convert any of the few chances to score and the inclement weather played its own part and hampered the accuracy of play.

Maccabi’s lineup: Ben Musayof, Guy Itzhak, Hadar Mor Yosef, Itay Ben Hemo, Rotem Yatzkar (Omer Itzhaki, 45), Niv Berkovitz, Shay Balahssen, (Yalli Lazar, 74), Asaf Hershko, (Afek Sapir Navot, 88), Tal Torgeman (Or Roizman, 55), Parfait Guiagon, Ronen Hanchis (Shaked Navon, 86).
