Luhansk "Zorya" was defeated by "Maccabi" Tel Aviv in the postponed match of the 3rd round of the group stage of the Conference League. The match in the Serbian city of Bačka Topola at the TSC Arena stadium ended with a score of 3:2.
This game was supposed to take place on October 26 in Tel Aviv, but due to the attack of the terrorist organization Hamas and hostilities in the Gaza Strip, it was moved from Israel to a later date.
The nominal hosts took the lead at the end of the first half - in the 45th + 2nd minute, Eran Zahawi beautifully shot under the crossbar from outside the penalty area.
After the break, the Israeli club increased its lead in the score - Dor Peretz scored a double, scoring in the 47th and 60th minutes.
The Ukrainian team was able to respond in the 71st minute – Eduardo Guerrero scored with a shot into the far corner after Ihor Horbach's cross from the left flank.
In the 88th minute, Yuriy Koval's team reduced the deficit to a minimum – Horbach scored after a pass from Denys Antyukh. However, the comeback did not work out – Luhansk failed to escape from defeat.
