Hapoel exit

The Jewish Chronicle - - Sport -

The bet­ter team won.” That was the as­sess­ment of Hapoel Tel Aviv coach Eli Guttman af­ter his team bowed out af­ter suf­fer­ing a 4-2 ag­gre­gate de­feat against St Eti­enne.

Trail­ing 2-1 from the home leg, they were beaten by the same score­line with Sa­muel Ye­boah’s last-minute strike prov­ing lit­tle more than a con­so­la­tion.

The de­feat saw Is­rael’s only re­main­ing team in Euro­pean com­pe­ti­tion fail to make the Uefa Cup group stages for the first time in three years.
