Hapoel Beer Sheva shocks Maccabi Tel Aviv 1-0

Apr 15, 2024 | Football

Hapoel Beer Sheva shocked Maccabi Tel Aviv 1-0 as Antonio Sefer scored an 80th minute penalty to hand the southern reds the 3-points and the win. After a goalless first half, the energy picked up as the game continued on, but a controversial offsides call led to a penalty being called by referee Igal Fried to the dismay of yellow-and-blue as Sefer calmly slotted the ball home to give Beer Sheva the victory.

“We have gone through some weird and scary few days, Hapoel Beer Sheva head coach Elyaniv Barda said. “The guys didn’t sleep all night and we had to move practice from the morning to the night. We had to make some changes to our lineup and they worked but we still have more to improve on. We had chances but we didn’t control the game enough as we went a bit backwards in tribe second half which is something we have to work on.”

“Beer Sheva didn’t deserve to win,” Maccabi Tel Aviv Head Coach Robbie Keane said. “It was purely bad luck. What’s good about football is that there is the next match and we have to think further on and quickly. The guys weren’t at the level that they should have been but we also shouldn’t have lost this game.”
