Hapoel Tel Aviv twice came back from a goal down to claim a 2-2 draw against Maccabi Haifa in Premier League action at Bloomfield Stadium on Monday night.

However, both teams were ultimately disappointed with the single point, which left Hapoel only four points above the relegation zone, with Maccabi Haifa just two points further in front.

While Monday’s match was a showdown between two of the league’s most disappointing teams this season, it proved to be an entertaining affair, with Hapoel’s strikes both possible candidates for goal of the season.

After Eliran Atar gave Haifa the lead in the 28th minute, making the most of Avraham Chekol’s poor back-pass, Shlomi Azulay leveled the score nine minutes later, turning on the edge of the box and sending a superb shot into the top left corner.

Atar made it three goals in the past two matches when he scored from close range seven minutes into the second half, only for Ben Reichert to equalize with a sensational volley from 20 meters out in the 72nd minute.

Both teams had chances to win the match, but had to settle for a point, which leaves them in a precarious position.
