An early onslaught from AC Sparta Praha proved too much for Hapoel Kiryat Shmona FC as three first-half goals made the difference in the Czech Republic.

Coming in to the game with no win in their last six matches in all competitions, the visitors' task was made all the harder as Ladislav Krejčí and Václav Kadlec put Sparta two up in the opening ten minutes. Ondřej Švejdík headed in a third before the break to leave Vítězslav Lavička's men in a strong position in Group I at the halfway stage, despite Shimon Abuhazira's consolation.
