Maccabi Haifa will welcome arch rivals Maccabi Tel-Aviv to the Sammy Ofer Stadium in the second Ligat HA’al Classico of the season and Nigerian defender Ikouwem Utin says it’ll be a very tough game.
Tel-Aviv top the League table with 40 points, three more than second placed Haifa, but the nature of the clash regardless of their league positions is a huge incentive to play for a win Utin has told www.brila.net.
“They are a strong side, but we must attack in this game as it’s the one thing that can see us through.

“The team is in a good place, players are focused in strength and mental capacity.”
Utin joined Haifa last year from Eight-time NPFL champions Enyimba FC.
