For the first time since 1974: the top four out of the top 4 after five rounds

The dramatic pair of penalties by Iyad Abu Abid in the main game on Sunday, not only raised Hapoel Beer Sheva to the top of the Premier League, but also took Maccabi Haifa out of the top four and set a rare figure.



True, this is only the fifth round and the table is of marginal importance when there are so many more points at the box office, but at the moment it still presents a picture that has not been seen in the senior league for 47 years.

For the first time since the 1974/75 season, all four of the traditional leagues of Israeli football - Maccabi Tel Aviv, Hapoel Tel Aviv, Maccabi Haifa and Betar Jerusalem - are outside the top four after five rounds. Fifth cycle.

Bastards with respect: The cruel look of the new Hapoel Beer Sheva

Lost the place between the first four and thus made the amazing figure possible.

The last time it happened, a win was only worth two points. Maccabi Tel Aviv was then, just like now, with a balance of two wins, a draw, two losses and five goals. The Yellows advanced to ninth place thanks to a prestigious 0: 2 in the derby against Hapoel Tel Aviv, which remained below the red line following four consecutive losses. Betar Jerusalem was closest to the top 4, with only a goal difference separating it from those ranked above it and the gap from the top stood at a point. And Maccabi Haifa? It was in the national league (second) at the time.



Despite this, at the end of that season, it was Betar that finished below the red line, but did not drop nationally after it was decided to freeze the declines following corruption and game sales discovered as part of a Knesset inquiry committee led by young MKs Ehud Olmert and Yossi Sarid.

Maccabi Haifa was one of the two newcomers when the league was enlarged to 18 teams, Hapoel Tel Aviv finished eighth and Maccabi Tel Aviv fourth.

And who is in first place?

Hapoel Beer Sheva then celebrated the first championship in its history.

History provides another reason for the current optimism in the Negev capital.



Since that season, there has also been no case in which four Hapoel teams share the top four places after five rounds.

Then there were Hapoel Haifa, Hapoel Kfar Saba, Hapoel Beer Sheva and Hapoel Petah Tikva, and after 47 years these are again the reds from Beer Sheva and Haifa, alongside the surprising Hapoel Hadera and Hapoel Nof Hagalil.

Except for 1974/75, the closest case was 20 years later, in the 1994/95 season, when at the end of the fifth round Bnei Yehuda led the national table, followed by Ashdod, Rishon Lezion and Hapoel Beer Sheva, which beat Hapoel Tel Aviv thanks to the goal difference. .



But then Maccabi Tel Aviv was busy in Europe (reciprocity against Werder Bremen in the Cup holders) and did not actually play in the fifth round.

The game against Tzafririm Holon was postponed for three and a half weeks, the Yellows won it 0: 3 and thus they actually finished the fifth round in second place.
