Mac TA trumps Beitar on more Zahavi magic

Eran Zahavi’s 90th-minute winner gave Maccabi Tel Aviv a 3-2 victory over Beitar Jerusalem at Bloomfield Stadium on Monday night, taking the yellow-and-blue back to the summit of the Premier League standings and giving the prolific midfielder sole possession of the Israeli record for goals in a season.

After equaling Nissim Elmalich’s record of 30 goals from the 1954/55 campaign with his strike in the 41st minute, Zahavi scored from close range just when it was beginning to seem Maccabi would be denied by Nikita Rukavytsya’s brace.
