Beitar Jerusalem’s winless start to the Premier League season continued with a disappointing 2-1 defeat at Bnei Yehuda on Saturday, while Hapoel Tel Aviv finally claimed its first victory of the campaign.

Lidor Cohen gave Beitar the lead in the 21st minute at Bloomfield Stadium after a superb break forward caught the hosts off guard.

However, Beitar would go on to lose a league match after taking the lead for the first time since April 2013, with Bnei Yehuda leveling the score through a Pedro Galvan (49) header before Amir Agajev (57) netted a well-deserved winner with a splendid solo effort.

The 23-year-old surged unchallenged to the edge of the box before sending an unstoppable shot into the top right corner to give the newly-promoted Bnei Yehuda its second win of the season after dropping to two straight losses following its opening victory at Maccabi Haifa.
