Maccabi Tel Aviv Prediction

Maccabi Tel Aviv are enjoying a massive 13-point lead at the top of the Ligat ha’Al over nearest rivals and second placed Bnei Yehuda as they prepare for the visit of local rivals Netanya to their Winner Stadium on Monday night.

The hosts have been in supreme form this term as they still remain unbeaten in this campaign and have won their last five on the trot with wins over Ashdod, Bnei Yehuda, Maccabi Haifa, Hapoel Be’er Sheva and Hapoel Ra’anana.

With such a big lead at the top of the domestic division, Maccabi Tel Aviv already look set for another appearance into Europe next season, while their home record stands at an excellent 6-1-0 20/1 so far this term, which includes no fewer than 6 clean sheets from their 7 home matches.

At the other end, the goals have been shared out amongst midfielder Peretz (5 goals) and forwards, Ofoedu (4 goals), Atzili and Shechter (5 goals each) and Atar (7 goals).

Netanya Prediction

Netanya actually share the same stadium as Maccabi Tel Aviv so to say this is a local derby would be an understatement! The ‘visitors’ have suffered just one defeat from their last six matches which was a 2-1 loss at home to Hapoel Haifa, but they’ve picked up recent wins against Hapoel Hadera, Bnei Sakhnin and Ironi Kiryat to keep their aspirations of making the Championship Round on track.

As Netanya’s home ground is the Winner Stadium too, we’ll take a look at their home record which stands at a disappointing 3-2-4 8/10 which includes mixed results in recent weeks on home soil.

Wins over Hapoel Be’er Sheva, Hapoel Hadera and Ironi have been offset by defeats to Maccabi Petah and Hapoel Haifa, and their inconsistent streak could well see them end up on the losing side again in this tussle.

Betting Tips Verdict

Maccabi Tel Aviv have won 5 of the last 7 meetings between these two clubs and as the hosts are in blistering form right now, I’ll back Maccabi Tel Aviv to also cover the asian line.
