After Hapoel Tel Aviv defeated Ashdod 0: 1 at the start of the 2020/21 season in Israeli football, the Toto Cup games continued with two more games at the same time – Maccabi Netanya defeated Hapoel Kfar Saba 0: 3, Hapoel Hadera finished 1: 1 against Maccabi Petah Tikva The New Immigrant.
Maccabi Petah Tikva – Hapoel Hadera 1: 1
After losing in the State Cup final to Hapoel Beer Sheva, Guy Luzon and his players arrived with new expectations for the opening of their return season to the front of the stage. On the other hand, Hapoel Hadera introduced a number of acquisition players in the starting lineup, including Maxim Plakuschenko, who arrived from Maccabi Haifa this weekend.
The whole story of the game drained into one minute, when in the 23rd minute Roy Ronen took advantage of a serious mistake by Adi Tabachnik and gave Petah Tikva the lead. 60 seconds passed and Assi Goma had a good shot and in fact determined the result of the game. Towards the break, Ronen turns away from the field, weeping bitterly, and it is possible that he was injured for a long time.
Maccabi Netanya – Hapoel Kfar Saba 0: 3
Raymond Atwald’s first game with Netanya was a great success, when his team played a good game against the Greens from Kfar Saba. The opening minutes belonged to the guest, who got into a number of dangerous situations but Tom sent and Amado Sokona missed, while Omar Barami’s kick hit the crossbar.
In the 31st minute, the diamonds already showed the opponent how to do it, after Chen Ezra found the net from a great cooking by Younes Melda. In the second half of Melda, he was also the outstanding player, when he cooked Netanya Avraham’s second goal in the 50th minute for Aviv, and also scored himself in the 80th minute from the penalty spot and signed the match.
