Comment: Last hurdle before qualification for the Europa League group-stage. A fantastic atmosphere at a packed Sarpsborg Stadion. Sarpsborg with a shocker of a start and 2-0 in front inside the first six minutes! The guests from Israel then worked their way into the game and showed their class. In the end a deserved victory for Sarpsborg, but the guests can count themselves a bit unlucky not scoring a second. Interesting result before the second leg in Tel-Aviv!
