Intriguing two-team title race resumes

After remaining on course to meet in the State Cup final for a second straight year as a result of Thursday’s semifinal draw, the battle for local supremacy between Maccabi Tel Aviv and Hapoel Beersheba returns to the Premier League on Saturday, with the yellow-and-blue once more aiming to put pressure on the leader by reducing the margin at the top to two points.

In each of the past two weeks, Maccabi closed within two points for at least 24 hours, only to see Beersheba go on and win to reestablish a five-point gap.
