Maccabi Haifa dropped its first points of the Premier League season on Monday night, drawing 1-1 with Hapoel Beersheba at Vasermil Stadium.

Haifa began the season with two straight victories and looked to be in control on Monday after taking the lead in Beersheba thanks to Vladimir Dvalishvili’s 50th minute strike.

However, the hosts seized control after Haifa’s Eyal Golasa was sent off six minutes later and claimed a deserved point following Lior Jan’s 70th minute header, meaning Hapoel Haifa remains the only team to have won all three of its league matches to date.

Beersheba midfielder David Revivo came closest to breaking the deadlock in the first half, but Haifa goalkeeper Amir Edri did well to keep out his dangerous free-kick from 20 meters out in the 29th minute.

Five minutes after the halftime interval, the visitors would make the breakthrough.

Idan Vered surged down the right flank before squaring the ball for Dvalishvili, who made no mistake in front of an empty net.

However, Haifa’s joy at taking the lead was short-lived. In the 56th minute, Golasa was sent off after picking up his second yellow card in three minutes following a rash challenge on Maor Melikson.

Revivo failed to equalize with the subsequent free kick, but Beersheba would tie the score in the 70th minute.

After an excellent performance, Edri completely misjudged Revivo’s corner and Jan was on hand to score on his debut.
