Maccabi paints Tel Aviv Yellow & Blue with Derby win, Ashdod stuns Beitar, Haifa tops the table – Israel Football MD13

Maccabi Tel Aviv wiped out Hapoel Tel Aviv 4-0 in the Big Tel Aviv Derby at Bloomfield Stadium. After a goalless first half, the floodgates opened for interim coach Patrick van Leeuwen who took over the club last week when Giorgos Donis and his staff were relieved of their duties. Dor Peretz broke the deadlock by stabbing home a corner kick that was redirected by Eitan Tibi in the 61st minute and just a minute later Aleksandar Pesic scored into the far corner to give the yellow-and-blue a 2-0 lead. Yonatan Cohen added insult to injury by crossing the ball to substitute Eylon Almog who headed it home while Cohen then found the back of the goal himself in stoppage time to wrap up a 4-0 victory.

Ashdod shocked Beitar Jerusalem 2-1 as Fahad Bayo scored a 93rd minute winner to snatch the 3-points at Teddy Stadium in the capital city. Dean David scored into the left corner of the goal to give the port city squad an early 1-0 lead, but Ali Muhammad drew Beitar even in the 24th minute from inside the box. However, Bayo beat his defender and put the ball by keeper Itamar Nitzan in the area deep into injury time to take the win.

Hapoel Beer Sheva blanked Bnei Yehuda 2-0 on a pair of second half goals to take the win. After a scoreless first half, Mariano Bareiro headed home the first goal in the 70th minute while Josue followed up with the insurance marker as he elegantly chipped the ball over a helpless Omer Niron to bag the points.

Maccabi Haifa downed struggling Maccabi Netanya 2-0 on a pair of first half goals. Dolev Haziza pounced on the ball in the 4th minute and put it by Dani Amos for a quick 1-0 lead while a quarter hour later Nikita Rukavytsya scored his 13th goal of the campaign to double the score and take the 3-points and stay atop the table.

Kiryat Shemona slipped by Hapoel Kfar Saba 1-0 as Idan Nachmias nodded home a 13th minute pinpoint perfect cross by Muhammed Shaker to secure the points. Following the game former Israel National Team coach Elisha Levy was appointed as Kfar Saba’s next head coach.

Hapoel Haifa and Hapoel Hadera played to a scoreless tie at Sammy Ofer Stadium as Ran Kadosh, the Carmel Reds keeper secured a point for Haim Silvas’s squad.
