The next Premier League champion will not be decided at Bloomfield Stadium on Monday night. However, the showdown between league leaders Maccabi Tel Aviv and Hapoel Beersheba presents both teams with an ideal opportunity to make a statement which could have major ramifications on the title race.

Maccabi and Beersheba enter the encounter tied on 32 points, with the yellow-and-blue sitting at the summit thanks to a slightly superior goal difference (+18 compared to +16).

The two teams have proven time and again this season that they are head and shoulders above the rest of the league and both enter Monday with plenty of momentum.

The three-time reigning champion is unbeaten in its last six matches, winning eight of its past 10, while Beersheba is unbeaten in its last nine games, triumphing in eight of them.
