33rd round in the Japanika League: Maccabi hosted Hapoel Beer Sheva tonight (Monday). The team arrived at the match after accumulating seven points in the last three matches and in the third place in the league with a match in hand and 51 points. Reijnen and Lavi weren’t part of the squad today due to suspensions. On the other hand, the team from the south came after the security situation in the south of Israel had settled down, and like Maccabi, wants to get the ticket to Europe.
