Maccabi Tel Aviv 2:0 KF Tirana
The Yellow & Blue won the first leg of their first round Europa League qualifier at the Netanya Stadium 2:0 thanks to goals by Yonatan Cohen and Eli Dasa. The return leg will take place next Thursday, July 6th in Tirana, Albania.

Beitar Jerusalem 4:3 Vasas
After falling into a 3:1 deficit, Beitar came storming back over the last five minutes to pull off an incomprehensible 4:3 win at the Moshava Stadium. Geirginho opened the scoring for the hosts, but 3 unanswered goals by Pavlov (2) and Kulcsar put Beitar down by 2. However, Yossi Benayoun led the comeback scoring an 88th minute strike while assisting on Idan Vered’s tying goal in the 91st minute. Just one minute later Erik Sabo completed the comeback with the match winner as the second leg will take place in Hungary on July 6th.
