Zahavi leads Mac Tel Aviv to winning start

Eran Zahavi continued his prolific ways to ensure three-time defending champion Maccabi Tel Aviv got its Premier League title defense off to a winning start on Saturday, while Maccabi Haifa is already facing an early crisis after dropping to a shock 3-0 defeat to newly-promoted Bnei Yehuda.

Zahavi scored twice to make it six goals in a week, and more importantly, secure a 3-2 win over Bnei Sakhnin at Bloomfield Stadium.

With the Champions League playoffs second leg against FC Basel on Tuesday being the yellow-and-blue’s main focus, coach Slavisa Jokanovic made seven changes to the lineup which drew 2-2 in the first leg in Switzerland last week.
