Both Ogu and Nwakaeme played 90 minutes in Tuesday’s game.
Meanwhile, Honved fielded a Nigerian in the contest as well.
Ikenne-King Patrick started in right-back position for the visitors and also played all 90 minutes.
The first goal of the match came on 35 minutes through Hapoel Be’er Sheva defender, Vitor. He struck a powerful header off a free-kick to beat the goalkeeper.
Striker, Nwakaeme then set up Einbinder for the second goal in the 52nd minutes.
The big forward playing wide at the time, beat his marker and then dropped a cross inside the box.
