Hapoel Tel Aviv’s erratic season continued on Sunday after it only stumbled to a 0-0 draw against Hapoel Ramat Hasharon, dropping two precious Premier League points at National Stadium in Ramat Gan.

Tel Aviv could have opened a three-point gap at the top of the standings with a win on Sunday, but the Reds disappointed and deserved no more than a single point against Ramat Hasharon, which was guided by interim coach Menahem Koretzki following the bizarre sacking of Momi Zafran.

The match began with a moment of silence following the death of former Israel coach Itzhak Schneor at the age of 85 earlier in the day. Schneor won four championships and three State Cups as a player at Maccabi Tel Aviv in the 1940’s and 1950’s before turning to coaching. He guided Hakoakh Ramat Gan (1965), Maccabi Tel Aviv (1972) and Hapoel Tel Aviv (1988) to championships and led the national team together with Ya’akov Grundman between 1988 and 1992.

On Monday, Betar Jerusalem returns home for the first time this season, hosting Maccabi Haifa at the renovated Teddy Stadium.

Betar enters the match in high spirits after defeating Maccabi Tel Aviv 1- 0 two weeks ago, while Haifa will be desperate for a win after taking all three points just once in its past five matches and falling eight points behind Hapoel Tel Aviv on Sunday.

At least the rift in Haifa’s dressing room between captain Yaniv Katan and goalkeeper Nir Davidovich seems to be over.

“I met Nir Davidovich today and we have settled our differences,” said Katan, who fell out with Davidovich after the ’keeper launched a scathing attack on the captain in an interview with Ma’ariv last summer.

“It is important to me that everyone will know that this story is behind us.

The team is more important than anything else.”
