Translation:The team lost two points because of the draw.
Ultara, in soccer if one team wins, it gains 3 points, if it is a draw, both teams get one point. This phrase is mostly used when few teams are racing for a better position in a league table. When one of those teams don't win they consider a draw as a loss of two points rather than the gaining of one.
What is the context of this sentence supposed to be? How would you lose points because of a draw?
They are probably referring to football, in which if you win, you get three points, and when you lose you get only one.
Could you please elaborate? Apart from בעיה and קושי I do not get it, not seeing Elijah in the sentence. Where is this quote from?
