Hapoel "Bank Yahav" Jerusalem host Valencia in the 7th round of the Eurocup on Wednesday night. The Reds wanted to stop the 4-game losing streak but a late comeback wasn't enough against the Spanish team who won 86-84. This is the 2nd time this week that Hapoel loses on one basket differential and just like in the game against Maccabi Tel Aviv, the Reds can take many positives takes from this game towards Sunday night match against Maccabi Haifa at home.

Valencia managed to shut down Jerrells and Dyson in the second half and they even led by 18 points. In the second half we saw a different Hapoel with high energies on defense and above all Lior Eliyahu stood up with 16 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists.

Hapoel can clinch the ticket to the next round if they win Ljubljana next week.

Highlights will be available soon.
