A stunning 90th minute strike by Hapoel Petah Tikva midfielder Guy Tzarfati crushed Hapoel Tel Aviv’s title hopes on Monday night.

Tzarfati’s sensational free-kick from 25 meters out secured Petah Tikva a 1-1 draw at home against Tel Aviv, which now trails Maccabi Haifa by 11 points with five matches to go before the gap is cut in half ahead of the final five games of the season.

Tel Aviv, playing without midfielder Bibras Natcho, who officially signed for Russian champion Rubin Kazan on Monday, only has itself to blame for dropping points on Monday after showing nothing of the form which saw it score 60 goals in its first 24 league matches of the campaign.

The Reds struggled to create scoring opportunities, but still seemed to be heading to the victory following Douglas da Silva’s 77th goal.

Substitute Bojan Vrucina crossed the ball from the right and after striker Victor Merey missed his header da Silva popped up on the left post to chest in the opener.

However, with the clock winding down, Tzarfati unleashed an unstoppable strike which gave goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama no chance and Petah Tikva got the draw it deserved, three months after losing 7-1 to Tel Aviv.
