It's not long before that dramatic match of the penultimate match when Roy Atar scored a goal in the 91st minute to keep Ilite Nazareth in the lead. winning 2-1 his father, Reuven Atar, who was coach in Afula.
The link is missing this year as the two are now in other groups but in such a derby the emotions remain intense, especially when there is great interest. Afula looked down a short time ago, but the away draw (1-1) with pioneer Maccabi Petah Tikva and the two subsequent victories closed the lifeline to six points and raised hopes of staying.
Of course, Nazareth Illite also wants points as he chases 8η however, I think today's survival instinct will prevail.
