Five second half goals helped Israeli champions Maccabi Haifa take a giant step into the third qualifying round after they hit Glentoran for six at Kiryat Eliezer Stadium on Wednesday night.
With national coach Dror Kashtan and his assistant Moshe Sinai in the stands, Maccabi were somewhat lacklustre in a tepid first half.
The broke the deadlock close to half time when Lior Refaelov coolly side-footed home from 10 yards.
Haifa must have received a half time grilling as they came out for the second half all guns blazing.
