Tayibe got permission at the last minute to play in Liga Alef North and the team only prepared for a few days before the start of the season. The roster is quite weak because, as I said, they neither planned nor knew that they would play in this league, plus 3 key players Vova Broun, Sean Malka and Yarin Sharabi left the team. As the coach said, they need a lot of reinforcements, so that they can start the fight for survival and already showed their poor performance in two defeats by Hapoel Bnei Zalfa 1-0 and Hapoel Kafr Kanna 1-3. Maccabi Nazareth started the season with -12 points due to a penalty, and logically the goal is survival. In the first 3 rounds, they played masterfully and won twice and drew once with very strong teams. Last round, they beat Tzeirei Kafr Kanna 1:4 away and they want to get out of the deficit as soon as possible, so they can’t get a better opponent to win the three points.
