Yellow-and-blue closing in on league title

Maccabi Tel Aviv can clinch a third straight Premier League championship with a victory over Ironi Kiryat Shmona next Sunday, despite seeing its winless streak on the road reach seven matches with Monday’s 1-1 draw against Hapoel Beersheba at Vasermil Stadium.

Maccabi hasn’t won away from Bloomfield Stadium since defeating Ashdod SC 1-0 in January, but it still looks to have the league title all but wrapped up. Monday’s draw moved it six points clear of Ironi Kiryat Shmona and kept it eight points ahead of Beersheba with three matches to play, meaning a win on Sunday will officially give the yellow-andblue the title.
