I watched the whole game, here is my analysis..
Haifa got off to a flying start and they drew a penalty with a hand ball from Omri Canada, Katan converted the penalty. After that the game was back and forth, really exciting stuff, Hapoel had a shout for a penalty that was waved off, but in my opinon it was a penalty, Shechter beat Teixeira for pace and was pushed in the back. Shortly after Golasa scored from the top of the box with a left foot shot into the right corner after a nice cutback from Masilela. Hapoel subsequently dominated the rest of the half after that and they got their goal when Vermuth sent Shechter through and he beat Teixeira for pace again. It was a really good finish, Hapoel had several other chances in the first half. Dvalishvili didn't play well at all and was subbed off at the beginning of the second half, Vermuth played really well the whole game.
Kiyal was subbed in to give Haifa three in the midfield. The tempo of the game subsequently slowed down with Hapoel having most of the possession but not being able to do much with it. Guttman then made two mistakes by subbing Yeboah for Natcho and then taking Shechter off for Zahavi and the finally took Lala off for Menteshashvili, as the game wore on Hapoel would throw everything they had at goal and Haifa would counterattack. Haifa had several three on three opportunities but couldn't do anything with them.
Overall good game. I think Levi had his team sit back for the win in the second half and it worked, Hapoel deserved a tie I thought but they didn't get it. Instead of Kiyal coming on who didn't do much I would have liked to see a straight swap of Dvalishvili for Strahman, I want to see what he can do.
Defense Advantage Haifa
They did what they needed to do despite Haifa's poor midfield play, Davidovic made some good saves.
Midfield Advantage Hapoel
Haifa clearly needs some better midfield players, Natcho, Yadin, Vucicevic, and Vermuth were way better than Golasa, Boccoli, Kiyal and Culma, Nice finish from Golasa though. Golasa was great for Haifa the others not so much.
Shechter caused all kinds of trouble for Haifa's defense and it was a mistake to sub him off, Katan took the penalty nicely but had a quiet game overall and missed one golden opportunity. Ghadir is too predictable, he needs to improve. Yeboah, Lala, Dvalishvili, and Arbeitman were all effectively neutralized during the game.
