Beitar routs Maccabi Tel Aviv in Jerusalem, secures Europa berth with Haifa loss

Beitar Jerusalem booked its place in the Europa League next season on Monday, beating champion Maccabi Tel Aviv 3-0 at Teddy Stadium to wrap up fourth place.

Beitar opened an unassailable four-point gap over Maccabi Haifa with one match to play after the Greens lost 1-0 to Maccabi Petah Tikva.

Lidor Cohen (4) and Hanan Maman (36) made the most of Maccabi defensive mistakes to open a comfortable lead, with Itzik Cohen (89) capping the win against the yellow-andblue, which secured its third straight championship and won the State Cup last week.
