After the break, the home team continued to look for a goal, but Panathinaikos resisted well. V 67. Adam Gnezda Čerin left the game in the first minute, leaving his place to Filip Đurićić, while Andraž Šporar came on for young Fotis Ioannidis. With three minutes left in regulation, the Slovenian international sent a nice cross from the side into the Maccabi penalty area, but the home defence cleared it in time. Neither team managed to score for the rest of the match, so it remained a draw and 0:0. Despite the draw in Haifa, the Greeks remain top of Group F after two rounds of group play.
