JERUSALEM, Oct. 21 (Xinhua) -- Israeli champion Maccabi Haifa achieved a 1-0 win at home against Czech champions Slavia Prague in Group E of the UEFA Conference League on Thursday.

Haifa's Ghanian striker Godsway Donyoh hit the post in the 23rd minute, and scored the game's only goal one minute later, after a pass by midfielder Ali Mohamed.

By half-time, the visiting team had missed several excellent opportunities to level the scores.

In the 57th minute, Haifa goalkeeper Josh Cohen made an impressive save after a shot by 17-year-old substitute Daniel Samek.

The win lifted the Israeli team to second place in the four-team group, with four points.

Feyenoord, who beat Union Berlin 3-1, top the group with seven points from three games, while Slavia and Union are in third and fourth place respectively, with three points each.

In matchday four, Maccabi and Slavia will meet again, this time in the Czech Republic, while Union will host Feyenoord, with both games to be played on November 4.
