Soccer: Clubs jockey for position prior to playoffs

Hapoel Beersheba is showing no signs of letting up, but Maccabi Tel Aviv will at least try and place some pressure on the Premier League leader when it visits Bnei Yehuda at Bloomfield Stadium on Saturday.

Maccabi can close within two points of Beersheba for at least 24 hours, with the leader only visiting Hapoel Kfar Saba on Sunday.

Beersheba has won 17 of its past 19 matches, picking up 53 of a possible 57 points. It enters Sunday’s game on the back of a club record seven-match winning streak, with its last defeat coming five months ago.
