Beitar ends European drought at Teddy Stadium

Beitar Jerusalem survived a nervy finish to win its first European tie in 15 years on Thursday night, beating Ordabasy Shymkent of Kazakhstan 2-1 at Teddy Stadium to claim an aggregate victory by the same scoreline in the first round of the Europa League qualifiers.

Beitar didn’t impress in its first match in continental competition in seven years last week, drawing 0-0 in the first leg in Kazakhstan.

However, the goalless deadlock put it in a promising position ahead of the return leg at Teddy and Beitar set up a meeting with Belgian outfit Charleroi in the second qualifying round.
