So far, Hapoel Tel Aviv has been one of the active teams in the transfer window – but it seems that it does not help it much in the pre-season games. 2: 0 by the newcomer to the national team, Hapoel Kfar Shalem.
After the 3: 1 they suffered three days ago for Bnei Yehuda, Nir Klinger and his trainees came to the match in order to achieve their first victory in preparation. The opponent, at least on paper, was supposed to be much more comfortable – and evidently, the team that played in the first division last year has already managed to lose once to the Premier League team, Maccabi Netanya.
In practice, even though Klinger gave Ernest Stakus and Armando Cooper the keys in the lineup, the Reds found it difficult to threaten the goal and fell behind in the 78th minute at the feet of Thomas Prince. Klinger tried to save the situation and made a high number of changes at the break, including a debut minute for Omar Brown, but not only failed – but also fell twice behind Tomer Benvenisti’s legs five minutes before extra time.
