Maccabi Loses 5-1

Maccabi Tel Aviv scored at the beginning of the second half of its game against Besiktas in Istanbul to draw within one goal but allowed three goals and lost 5-1 in its Euroleague soccer match. Aside from some loud booing before the match, the game passed without incident, despite Israeli-Turkish tensions.

Maccabi's next Euroleague game is scheduled for Rosh Hashanah against Dynamo Kiev.
