Hapoel Jerusalem on verge of clinching top seed ahead of Eilat rematch

Hapoel Jerusalem can close within a single win of securing the No. 1 seed in the BSL playoffs on Sunday night with a victory over Hapoel Eilat in a repeat of last year’s final.

Jerusalem (22-6) holds a two-and-a-half game lead over second place Maccabi Tel Aviv entering Sunday’s clash at Jerusalem Arena where it will be targeting its eighth consecutive league win. Eilat (16- 13) is also in excellent form, winning seven of its past eight games, with its only defeat coming by a single point against Maccabi Kiryat Gat after squandering a 10-point gap in the final three minutes.
