It is a tough decision, given that both are in the top of the league, one is better than the other by about 9 points (3 up in the air because of Acco-Tel Aviv clash).
Hapoel Tel Aviv has more Goal Difference with +24. Maccabi Haifa only trails by a goal with +23. Both have given up only 8 goals in 13/14 rounds and scored 32 and 33 goals respectively.
The 2 best Goal scorers in Israel are Shlomi Arbeitman from Maccabi Haifa and Itay Sechter from Hapoel Tel Aviv.. Ironically, Davidavishilli is also in top 3 with 7 goals..
Yea, hapoel is good for the moment... Maccabi Haifa is good for the decade...
but ultimately, Maccabi Tel Aviv is the best team in Israeli history.
No other team ranks close to them.
They are our Man Utd, Juventus, Bayer Munich, Real Madrid, Olympiakos, CSKA Moskva, Galatarasay and Ajax combined
