They closed the matter: 0:4 to Beitar Jerusalem in Afula in the quarter-finals | Israel Hayom


Yossi Abouxis' team had no difficulty in the first game on the field of the national representative • Toma bombed first (11), Nicolasco broke form (63), Avishai Cohen also joined the celebration (73) along with Jordan Shua (103)

About half a goal before the opening whistle in Afula, a break in the cloud over the Soukaria Stadium caused whispers as to whether the cup quarter-final between Hapoel Afula and Betar Jerusalem would be able to take place. But here is proof, even for facilities in the Premier League, that it is all a matter of infrastructure.

Despite huge amounts of water falling before the game and throughout the 90 minutes, there was not a single puddle, mud or anything that looked like a danger to the players' health.

Beitar Jerusalem does not have such a high-quality grass field in the Teddy Stadium. What wonder it was much easier for them.

Terzi Touma (11) scored first, Ion Nicolescu (63), Avishai Cohen (72) and Jordan Cohen (103) made it 0:3 very easy for Beitar, against an opponent that knocked out Hapoel Tel Aviv in the previous round.

Beitar did not fall into the trap and preferred not to give too much importance to the rematch at Teddy.

In general, double meetings at the quarter-final stage are a sieve that a team like Afula can only dream of passing through.

In a single game, the team from the national team surprised, but in a pair of meetings, it's a different story.

Beitar Jerusalem closed a story even in 90 minutes on the way to the semi-finals. Its coach, Yossi Abouxis, won several trophies in his career, also on the lines, and this enterprise will be sewn on him and his teams. Afula is currently only sewn up in the National League. Just reaching stage 8 The last ones in the cup did her honor, at least as much as her facility, which survived a particularly cold and rainy evening.
