Micha joined Maccabi Tel Aviv when he was 8 years old. On 2004 he started playing with the youth team and was tagged as a potential talent since he joined. Former international player Eli Ohana, his manager in the Israel U-19 National Team, even described him in an interview in August 2011 as "the most talented player I have ever managed".
On 12 February 2011, after the arrival of Moti Ivanir as the new manager of Maccabi and as a rejuvenation period led by the club, Micha made his debut for the club against Hapoel Ramat Gan in a match Maccabi Tel Aviv won at the score 3–0. Micha scored the third goal and assisted another one in that game. On 29 September 2011, Micha scored his first goal in a European competition, leading his team to a 1–1 draw after a stunning shot against [[FC Dynamo Kyiv]Dynamo Kyiv]] in Bloomfield Stadium on the Europa League group stage.
In the 2012–2013 season Micha was a key player in Maccabi Tel Aviv's success in retaining the championship, playing 28 games and scoring 5 goals, and mostly excelled during the latter stages of the season after scoring in both derby matches against Hapoel Tel Aviv in the playoffs.
In the 2013–14 season Micha continued his good run from the end of the last season by scoring a crucial away goal against Bordeaux in the UEFA Europa League group stage, which obtained Maccabi its first ever win in the competitions group stage.
On 5 September 2011, Micha made his debut in Israel U-21 team against England. The decision to not include him in the squad for the UEFA European Under-21 Championship in 2013 was controversial. Micha was a central figure in the team during the 2015 European Under-21 Championship qualifications which Israel finished second and was supposed to qualify but did not since only the best four teams who finished second in the groups qualified.
Dor studied at Kalay High School at Giv'atayim.
