Maccabi Haifa- Maccabi Netanya
Well well well...this is "THE" match in my opinion. First against second. I see a haifa victory, with the game against Maccabi TLV i was telling myself that maccabi would win because haifa would get to caught up in the moment, but clearly haifa have maintained a quite but strong leadership and the players seem hungry for victory every weekend. Netanya has abeen a bit down and up but maintained the second place. I think that haifa will take this basically because there are players on the team like rafaelov and katan which are in complete control lately and are displaying the best of their ability...however, this is football and lets not forget to mention that this is israeli football, god knows what goes through these players' heads and whether they can handle the pressure, or are concentrated enough to keep their momentum. Still, i see a haifa victory more likely. Netanya can win on any given day but thats assuming they are coming to win and coming to play at their highest level because haifa has really been playing their old school style where nothing is too pretty but it is efficient, techinical, and it works.
