Beitar snatches win in Haifa thanks to late show

Two late goals gave Beitar Jerusalem a dramatic 2-0 win at Maccabi Haifa on Sunday night, propelling the team back up to third place in the Premier League standings.

After a goalless first half, Beitar barely threatened Haifa’s goal in the second half, but Dovev Gabay netted the opener in the 85th minute thanks to Liroy Zhairi’s sublime through ball before Omer Atzili clinched the three points in the 90th minute.

Beitar is just four points back of first place after registering its third straight victory and fifth in the past six matches. Jerusalem opened the season with a four-match winless streak during which some fans were calling for the resignation of coach Slobodan Drapic.
