Time for us to have a thread dedicated to the most interesting league in Israeli football. ;)

Well I guess most of us know the current situation, Hapoel Jerusalem who had a very good run until recently had 3 successive defeats including the 3:1 loss to Netanya at home last week. Yesterday they hardly managed a draw against Hapoel Raanana so that's 4 games without a win for them. The same result repeated itself in the other matches (Hapoel Acco - Maccabi Herzeliya and Ramat Hasharon - Zafririm Holon). Back to the top of the table: If Netanya beats Kiryat Shmona today they will open up a 2 points lead at the top over Hapoel Jerusalem. Another interesting match is Rishon Lezion against Kfar Saba, a game which is included in our Prediction League. ;)

This league never fails to surprise, you can never make a safe prediction who will gain promotion.

Today's results:

Maccabi Netanya 1 Kiryat Shmona 1. A Red Card for Razaq almost cost Netanya the match but a 90th minute equaliser by Oren Nissim saved a point and kept Netanya at the top, same points as Hapoel Jerusalem but a better goal difference. In the other match Ironi Rishon Lezion and Hapoel Kfar Saba drew 0:0.

Some decent strikers like Kakkun, Nissim and Vilner in Liga Leumit while some teams in Ligat ha Al need so desperately attacking force. Like some in this forum like to say "only in Israel" ;)

I don't agree on Nissim and Vilner but I do agree about Kakun. He was always highly rated by everyone, and suddenly Hapoel Petah Tikva decides to get rid of him. I was surprised he couldn't find another team in Ligat HaAl. Speaking of strikers, Asi Tubi is close to re-join Hapoel Jerusalem.

Round 22 results:

Maccabi Herzeliya 0 Maccabi Netanya 0
And once again Netanya can't win away games, but this result was enough to keep them first at the end of the second period of the season.

Hapoel Acco 1 Ironi Rishon Lezion 2
Rishon kept their promotion hopes alive with an away win against Hapoel Acco. They're now 5 points from second place.

Hakoach Ramat Gan 0 Hapoel Raanana 1
A win would've put Hakoach in 4th place, but they lost and remained 7th.

Maccabi Achi Nazrath 2 Hapoel Kiryat Shmona 2
Kiryat Shmona scored their second goal in the 83rd minute to take a 2:0 lead, but two goals in the 85th and 88th minutes kept a point for Achi Nazrath.

Hapoel Kfar Saba 2 Ironi Ramat Hasharon 0
A clear win for Kfar Saba who remain second and are level on points with Maccabi Netanya now.

Tomorrow's match will be Hapoel Jerusalem against Zafririm Holon.
