Motherwell’s Europa League journey ended in Israel as Hapoel Beer Sheva overcame a spirited showing from the Scottish side.
Leonardo Vitor’s first-half header opened the scoring before a penalty from Josue and a neat finish from Elton Acolatse sealed the game.
Motherwell captain Declan Gallagher was shown a second yellow card in conceding the spot-kick.
But Stephen Robinson can be proud with his side’s efforts in hot conditions.
The Lanarkshire side competed admirably and were well organised until going down to 10 men.
But it is Beer Sheva who will host Czech side Viktoria Plzen in the play-off round next Thursday.
