Maccabi Haifa climbed out of the relegation zone after registering only its third victory of the Premier League season on Monday night, beating Hapoel Tel Aviv 3-0 in Netanya.

Haifa failed to find the back of the net in seven of its first 10 matches of the campaign and its performance on Monday was anything but impressive.

However, it could have hardly asked for a better opponent against which to break out of its slump, with Hapoel dismal in defense and atrocious in attack in Guy Levy’s first match at the helm.

It should hardly be surprising that a clash between two of the season’s most disappointing sides resulted in such a poor game, but Haifa won’t care one bit after returning home with the points.

Goals by captain Dekel Keinan (28, 56), his first brace since a 3-0 win over Hapoel in January 2013, and another from Glynor Plet (49) secured the three points for the Greens, who moved ahead of Hapoel on goal difference, with both teams only a single point above the relegation zone.

However, they are also only five points back of Hapoel Ra’anana in fourth place, giving both coaches real hope of salvaging something from a lost season.
