Soccer Roundup: Early battle between Maccabi Tel Aviv, Beersheba

The Premier League title will not be decided at Turner Stadium on Sunday night. But the showdown between reigning champion Hapoel Beersheba and the title holder in the three previous seasons Maccabi Tel Aviv provides both teams with an ideal opportunity to make a powerful statement.

Beersheba unsuccessfully chased Maccabi for years until it claimed its first championship since 1976 last season. Maccabi is still trying to get used to being the challenger and will enter Sunday’s match as the underdog, a role it has very rarely held in local action over recent seasons.
