Maccabi Down 2-0 at Besiktas

In an evening that was mostly soccer, Maccabi Tel Aviv trailed Besiktas of Istanbul 2-0 at halftime of their Euroleague match.

With a heavy police presence, there was no violence, although loud booing by the traditionally vocal Turkish fans, possibly related to political tensions between Israel and Turkey, caused management to play loud music during warmups, according to FoxSports.
