Maccabi Haifa Legends 1-5 Barça Legends: Big win in Israel

The blaugranes win their second game in Israel in a week

A great second half saw Barça Legends win 5-1 away to Maccabi Haifa Legends, making that two wins out of two this week in Israel.


Home side take the lead

Barça went on the attack from the off, with Ronaldinho showing his tricks. Rivaldo had the first big chance with a header, but Davidovitch saved well with his feet (min. 6).

The Israeli side then had their say, Attar got the ball out of his feet and struck a sweet left footed shot from outside of the area that went in off the bar to the delight of the crowd (1-0, min. 8).

The goal spurred on Barça Legends with Ronaldinho having his own attempts from distance. One of them saw Roger Garcia put in the rebound off the keeper, but it was ruled out for offside.

Comeback in 18 minutes

The second half changes made the difference for the visitors, Trashorras first testing the keeper from distance before two minutes later he fed Saviola to finish after a nice bit of skill in the box (1-1, min. 47).

Ronaldinho wanted his goal but it wouldn't seem to come, first a free kick was saved by the keeper onto the post, but after Guily was fouled, he stepped up to rifle a penalty in for 1-2 lead.

Blaugranes close out the game

Giuly then scored a superb volley for 1-3 after being picked out by Sergi Barjuan, the Frenchman receiving the plaudits he deserved from everyone. Bojan fed Saviola for his brace into an empty net moments later.

There was still time for Bojan to score another late penalty, making the final score 1-5.
