Summary: Hapoel Tel Aviv - Beitar Jerusalem 1:2 (Sport1)
Although Beitar Jerusalem lost 2:1 to Hapoel Tel Aviv tonight (Saturday) in the Toto Cup, the team was not too disappointed. The yellow-blacks showed up after a shaky week that ended with Barak Abramov passing through the hands of Barak Abramov and guaranteeing their appearance in the Premier League - and with a missing squad, they did not expect much From the game against the bitter rival.
"The last week was just the finale of these two months, in which we trained without knowing things," said Yossi Abouxis, "credit is due to the players who came to train without knowing what would happen to them.
There was no proper preparation in terms of practice games, but this club managed to stay as it should in the end.
We are a little behind in time, but there are good energies and I believe it will be fine."
Abouxis explained why he stayed in a period of uncertainty: "21 years ago I left and last season I came back. I felt it was not the time to leave again, I didn't want to leave and wander after half a fun season I had here. This club is so big. Sometimes it's worth betting on it That you will 'stay outside', but on the other hand you know that if you are here - you will stay in a big club."
About the game he said: "We played without 5-6 players who did the preparation with us and they didn't pass because of Jankovic's story. Next week they will be. We need 2-3 more good foreigners and until now it was not possible. If we do it we will be a team favor".

On the less pleasant side of a rather festive evening for Beitar fans, there were clashes between some of them and security guards following the arrest of a fan. In total, two were arrested and one more was detained.
In addition, the comedian Guy Hochman published a Facebook post in which he said he was attacked by fans and attached a video. Hochman wrote : "What a drag.
Those who follow know that I started it all at Teddy's, at the home of Beitar fans and I found out that they are the opposite of what they have presented to us all these years. Good fans, warm, smart, football lovers. And I know that the majority are still like that. Because I now receive hundreds of messages. But there is the garbage And unfortunately sometimes the garbage stinks up the whole room. And it's a shame. Because this garbage drives away every husband who comes with good intentions, alienates fathers with children, gives a bad name to the group that perhaps best represents Israeliness.
"It's clear to me that I'm not innocent. I come and laugh at them, and those who play with fire should also know how to get burned sometimes. But here I was burned to death, literally, they put out a cigarette on me. And they gave me bombs. And they behaved like the stigma I tried to remove from these fans. For years I've been going between All football fans, and of course not everyone likes it, but I have never been in a situation like this. And precisely with Beitar.
Exactly where I started.
I'm a little upset now, tomorrow I'll tell the whole story."
