Battle for championship heats up

The Premier League title race seemed to be heading towards a foregone conclusion just a couple of weeks ago.

Two-time defending champion Maccabi Tel Aviv surged to the top of the standings with nine wins from 11 matches, going seven straight games without even conceding a goal.

Within a month, Maccabi turned a fourpoint deficit into a four-point lead over Ironi Kiryat Shmona, which picked up just four points from four matches after going unbeaten in its first 16 games of the campaign.
