Striker Elton Acolatse scored a jaw breaking double for Israeli side Hapoel Beer Sheva in their Europa League encounter with German giants Bayer Leverkusen on Thursday evening.
The Ghanaian attacker scored twice to take his total tally to four Europa League group stage goals in his in three games in his team’s painful 2-4 loss at home.
Leon Bailey put the visitors 1-0 up after five minutes of play but Acolatse equalized for the home team seven minutes later to square things up.
With 25 minutes on the clock, the Ghanaian forward provided a moment of magic as he individually scored a classic goal to turn the game in favour of the Red and Whites.
Or Dadya scored an own goal to level matters for the away team with six minutes to the break.
Fifteen minutes to full time, Bailey grabbed his second goal and Leverkusen’s third before Florian Wirtz added the fourth goal for Leverkusen in the pulsating game which ended 4-2 to the away team.
Acolatse has four goals in three group games this campaign in the ongoing Europa League tournament.
