Early life[edit]

Atzili started his career at Maccabi Tel Aviv's youth setup. In 2009, he moved to Hapoel Rishon LeZion, spending two years in the under-20 squad before making his professional debut on 17 October 2011, coming on as a late substitute for Asi Baldout in a 1–1 Israeli Premier League away draw against Beitar Jerusalem.[3]

Atzili scored his first professional goal on 12 May 2012, but in a 1–2 home loss against Hapoel Acre;[4] his side also suffered relegation in the end of the season. He subsequently became an important unit for the club in Liga Leumit, scoring six goals as his side missed out promotion in the play-offs; highlights included a brace in a 2–2 draw at Maccabi Petah Tikva on 10 May 2013.[5]

Atzili only became an undisputed starter for Beitar in the 2015–16 campaign, where he scored a career-best seven goals.[8]

Granada[edit]

On 31 August 2016, Atzili signed a four-year deal with La Liga side Granada CF,[9] for a rumoured fee of 750,000.[10] He made his debut in the category on 11 September, starting in a 1–2 home loss against SD Eibar.[11]

Maccabi Tel Aviv[edit]
