Soccer: Maccabi Tel Aviv quiets critics with convincing win over Maccabi Haifa

Maccabi Tel Aviv returned to winning ways in impressive fashion on Saturday night, beating Maccabi Haifa 2-0 on the road to move within two points of the summit of the Premier League standings.

After drawing at Ironi Kiryat Shmona and suffering a shock home defeat to Hapoel Ra’anana, sandwiching a drubbing by Chelsea in London, Maccabi was desperate to get back on track at Haifa Stadium.

Three days before it hosts Dynamo Kiev in Haifa in its second Champions League group stage match, the yellowand- blue had to wait until Eden Ben-Basat’s 82nd-minute header to break the deadlock before Dor Peretz clinched the win in stoppage time.
