Following the great uproar surrounding the derby and Maccabi Tel Aviv's decision at noon not to withdraw the tickets for its fans, a decision that was accompanied by a response from Hapoel Tel Aviv, to Walla! Sport learned that before the Sabbath began, lively talks began again between the officials, including the Israel Police and the league administration, in cooperation with the two clubs.
The goal is to find an outline that will return Maccabi Tel Aviv to a situation in which it withdraws the tickets as is customary in every game, so as not to create a precedent without an outside audience in the derby.
This is a very important move for both the administration and the police, which does not want to create a situation for itself in which a team does not withdraw tickets out of fear for the safety of its fans. It is very important to the police that the derby be played with both audiences and pass safely. As Shabbat began, all the parties began renewed talks in order to try to initiate a move that would allow the game to be held with a Maccabi Tel Aviv crowd.

Bloomfield Stadium management is also involved in talks. There are thoughts on how to create more massive buffering between audiences by higher fences and other measures to ensure that audiences do not approach each other or come into contact.
