For the first time this season: Yonatan Cohen will start for Maccabi Tel Aviv against Hapoel Jerusalem

Maccabi Tel Aviv coach Vladimir Ivić will not field his strongest lineup tonight (Wednesday, 20:00) in the Toto Cup qualifying match against Hapoel Jerusalem. The Serbian decided to remove Eyal Golsa and Enrik Savorit from the squad, and will allow players who did not get significant playing minutes in the camp And in the league to participate and prove to the coach that he was wrong.

For the first time since he arrived at Maccabi Tel Aviv, Yonatan Cohen may start in the lineup. It is not yet clear whether this will happen as a left back or as a second striker. Eran Zahavi and George Jovanovich will be on the roster, as well as Dor Turgeman, who is interested in going out on loan in January – after that in the league games he was not counted and hardly dressed.

Ivic did not show in his preparation for the game that the result tonight is important to him. vice versa. For him, on Sunday – when Maccabi will meet Hapoel Umm Al Fahem in the eighth round of the State Cup, it will be more significant, and the players of the team will return to the 11 in preparation for the return of the league.

Daniel Tanenbaum, who was the senior goalkeeper of the yellows and was pushed back in light of the success of Daniel Peretz, will open between the posts. The goalkeeper is aware of the clear hierarchy in goal, but at the same time hopes to show good ability – after a long period in which he did not play and was partly injured.
