Derby triumph extends Mac TA lead

A third straight Premier League championship is beginning to look more and more likely for Maccabi Tel Aviv with every passing match. Maccabi cruised to a comfortable 2-0 win over Hapoel Tel Aviv in the derby at Bloomfield Stadium on Monday night, opening a four-point gap at the top of the standings.

Ironi Kiryat Shmona had spent more than three consecutive months in first place, but has picked up just four points from its past four matches after losing 3-1 at Beitar Jerusalem on Sunday.

Maccabi, on the other hand, has been clinical if not impressive in recent weeks.
