The Tel Aviv derby was delayed by 18 minutes due to a barrage of torches thrown from the stands of fans of both teams, 20 seconds after the opening whistle of referee Uriel Greenfeld.
Despite all attempts to prevent what became a ritual in the games between Hapoel Tel Aviv and Maccabi Tel Aviv, security forces failed - and Bloomfield was painted red and yellow smoke.

Some of the fans of both teams have been arrested, but in any case it seems that both teams will return to the court of the Football Association soon.
