Maccabi Tel Aviv will host Hapoel Katamon in the match of the 25th round of the Israeli Championship. Do the guests have any chances?
Maccabi Tel Aviv
Maccabi Tel Aviv secured a place in the top six at the end of the first part of the season, and now they will try to finish as high as possible. At the moment, it is not possible to rise above the third position, but the chances are good. Hapoel from Beersheba has one point more, and Maccabi from Haifa, which is going first, has five points more. In the previous two rounds, Maccabi Tel Aviv scored six points, beating Hapoel Beersheba (1-0) and the Neszion Section (2-0).
There are two rounds left until the end of the first part of the championship, and Hapoel Katamon still has not secured a place in the top six. Before the start of the 25th round, he has 33 points on his account, and Beitar, who is seventh, has two points less. In the three previous rounds, Hapoel achieved one victory, beating the Neszion Section 1-0, and in the other two matches scored a total of two points, playing 0-0 with Hapoel from Beersheba and 2-2 with Hapoel from Haifa.
Statistics and figures:
- Maccabi Tel Aviv won in the previous two rounds;
- Hapoel Katamon won in one round out of the last eleven;
- Maccabi won against Hapoel in four previous matches.
Maccabi, which has returned stability, should cope with the -1 handicap without any problems, but I also propose to put on the goal of Hapoel leading the fight for the top 6.
