The time for the big final has come
30-04-2022 | 14:13We are just a day away from the big final of Delasport Balkan League. On Sunday evening at 20:30 Hapoel Nofar Energy Galil Elion will meet Maccabi Next Urban Haifa after the two teams won their semifinal clashes. The match will be broadcast LIVE on Sport 5 for Israel, RING Tv for Bulgaria and online BTVsport.bg and Delasport Balkan League YouTube's channel.
Hapoel will go in to the game as favorite being a first divison team. They showed their class and superiority in the semifinal against the hosts Ironi Rain Nahariya and will try to do the same tomorrow. It's difficult to single out one player as coach Barak Peleg is giving a chance to everybody and everyone is a potential threat. Washington and Levi did well under the basket in the semifinal but given the phisicality of Maccabi down low, things should be tougher in the final.
Maccabi had a much tougher task against Balkan but came out better at the end. Vaughn, Putney, Gilder and Taylor did well individually but against Hapoel even they will have to raise their level. Maccabi will enter the game with no pressure and with nothing to lose so that could be an advantage to the team. Of course, in order to have a chance, all players need to step up and be at 100% against such a quality opponent.
The atmosphere in "Ein Sara" hall is expected to be hot as fans of both teams are waited on the stands. That alone signifies the importance of the game and the fact that a trophy is at stake. On Sunday evening we'll know who is coming out on top but one thing is clear - the teams are eager and ready to start the BIG FINAL.
