The match took place at the Teddy Stadium, where the Reds stormed into the capital city of the State of Israel and blanked their opponents. Osher Davida changed the face of the game by nodding home a kick from the corner given by Alon Azugi. This happened in the eighth minute of the match, allowing the squad of coach Kobi Refuah to bag a lead of 1-0 right away. Meanwhile, Farley Rosa took to pounding a loose ball straight into an abandoned goal and doubled the advantage of the team.

On the other hand, Yossi Mizrachi, the coach for Beitar, was questioned regarding the rumors circulating about his club. He accepted that there has been uncertainty lately and various incorrect things being said about the club have not helped matters. Pointing out that many of the team’s key players are missing, the coach added that it has become difficult for the club to bag some wins. Several of the players are either ill, injured, or located abroad for one reason or the other. Meanwhile, the Carmel Mountain hosted Hapoel Jerusalem and Maccabi Haifa for a game that ended with a draw. During the match, each team lost a player due to a red card handed out in the second half. 

The initial 45 minutes of the game saw no goals and Muhammad Abu Fani, belonging to the Greens’, was told to head off to the benches after being given a second yellow card. While Fani was sent off seven minutes into the second half, Omer Agbadish of the Reds’ followed shortly after. Despite these two occurrences, William Agada was unfazed and went on to break away from some defenders, only to race downfield. He beat Josh Cohen, the keeper of Haifa, in the 85th minute of the thrilling game and provided the squad of Ziv Arie with a much-needed lead of 1-0.
