After a difficult and tense season, Hapoel Hadera will host Hapoel Tel Aviv tonight (Saturday, 19:00), after last week’s victory over Bnei Sakhnin, this is a game for protocol only.

Befitting the game, coach Nisso Avitan will make many changes. Lidor Maimon, Guy Herman, Rotem Keller and Ron Unger, who don’t usually play, will get a chance. Robbie Lebkovic, Jonathan Sissa, Kalman Sturm, Dia Levavidi, Albert Aiofi, Menashe Zeleka, Niv Gottlieb and Steven Alfred will not be included in the roster.


Among the seniors, Sami Burrard and Ruslan Barsky will start in the lineup, while Sa’ar Fedida and Ido Levy are expected to sit on the bench, but probably won’t be involved in the game. Avitan practiced a formation of five defensive players in the lineup, with Maymon starting alongside Filip Ipola and Tarek Bushnak. In the link, Gilad Abramov will return to the lineup after a long time.

“Fortunately, we have reached the situation we dreamed of, that tomorrow’s game will be for protocol only,” he said Tried Avitan. “Of course we will try to include players who naturally played less during the season. At the same time, every victory in the playoffs is worth money and we will try to do everything to end a difficult season in a good way with a victory, also for the sake of the fans who will come to the last game. My 100 percent success rate? The most uninteresting.”

Estimated composition: Guy Herman, Ron Unger, Philip Ipola, Lidor Maimon, Tarek Boushank, Rotem Keller, Ruslan Barsky, Gilad Abramov, Sami Burard, Elad Madmon and Stav Nachmani
