Jerusalem victorious on and off the pitch

Beitar Jerusalem took a significant step towards European qualification on Monday night, picking up four points in a single day after beating Maccabi Petah Tikva 2-1 on the road and receiving a point back from the Israel Football Association High Court.

Beitar’s appeal against the two-point deduction it was handed last week for racist chants was reduced to a one-point punishment after its appeal was partially accepted and the win over Petah Tikva took it back up to fourth place, which will secure Europa League qualification at the end of the season.

Beitar moved one point clear of Maccabi Haifa, with both teams having two more matches to play.
