Maccabi Tel Aviv, Maccabi Haifa both looking to avoid early-season panic

With Maccabi Tel Aviv coming off one of its most surprising defeats of recent years and Maccabi Haifa still searching for it first goal and first victory of the campaign, both teams enter Saturday’s showdown at Haifa Stadium in desperate need of a win.

Tel Aviv dropped to its first home loss in a meaningful Premier League match in more than two years last weekend, suffering a 2-1 defeat to Hapoel Ra’anana at Bloomfield Stadium.

Maccabi struggled to break down Ra’anana’s formation, and just two minutes after finally netting an equalizer, conceded for the second time in the match in the 90th-minute.
