On april 2017
Carlos Cuéllar's Maccabi Petah Tikva lost in their visit to Maccabi Tel Aviv (2-0). A defeat that leaves the fight for the third position open. The fourth in the table, Beitar Jerusalem, plays on Monday against Hapoel Be’er Sheva, although Bnei Sakhnin (in fifth position) won Maccabi Haifa and are just three points behind Carlos team.
The goals from Micha and Ben Haim made the difference. Cuéllar played the 90 minutes as usual when he is fully fit. Now Maccabi Petah Tikva has the target of winning Maccabi Haifa next Saturday and get back on track. On the horizon, the third place that gives access to the 2017/18 Europa League.
