The Greek coach spoke with Patrick Van Leven before the whistle about the game plan. Regardless of the result, Donis requested that Dan Glazer and Dor Peretz not play all 90 minutes before Riga. In addition, he demanded that Sharan Yeni and Enrique Saborit, who are already qualified, not dress, to give them some more rest ahead of the most important game in the Champions League qualifiers this coming Wednesday.
Also, the club were pleased with the acquisition players Ben Bitton and Tal Ben Haim who received first minutes in the yellow and showed excellent ability. “Tal played as if he had never left here and not as one who had not played football for two years,” they said at the end of Maccabi Tel Aviv with satisfaction.
The one who was replaced and not professionally is Ophir Davidzada, who felt bad in the half and asked to leave. The injured Shahar Phiben and Matan Hozaz will return in full training in three weeks. Ruslan Bersky will also not be fit to play against the Latvians. Orosh Nikolic is training separately because of the isolation and Itai Schechter will return to practice with the rest of his teammates after finishing the isolation.
