Malmö prove match for Maccabi

Malmö FF 3-2 Maccabi Haifa FC Malmö twice come from behind to get their noses in front.

Malmö FF twice fell behind against Maccabi Haifa FC but still came back to secure a UEFA Champions League second qualifying round first-leg victory in Sweden.

Maccabi leads
The game was only two minutes old when the Israeli side, who were beaten in the third qualifying round by Rosenborg BK last year, took the lead through Alon Harazi. Malmö were level in the 33rd minute when Yksel Osmanovski found the target, but Argentinian forward Roberto Colautti restored Maccabi's advantage on the stroke of half-time.

Vital comeback
The lead was short-lived, however, and three minutes after the restart defender Daniel Andersson converted a penalty, before Malmö edged ahead for the first time with 22 minutes remaining, Hasse Mattisson giving the Swedish side a narrow advantage to take to Israel next Wednesday.

'A bit disappointed'
Maccabi coach Roni Levy said: "I am a bit disappointed because the result doesn't do us justice. We could have easily drawn or even won this match as we dominated most of the 90 minutes. Malmö, who are an attack-minded side, punished us for three silly mistakes.

Tel-Aviv return
"On the bright side, we still scored two away goals and Malmö have to travel and face us in Tel-Aviv. With a packed Bloomfield stadium, and if we don't lose our heads, we are capable of qualifying. This team could gel into a side which can beat anyone."
