Jubilant Jerusalem thrilled with return to European competition

The last time Beitar Jerusalem played in Europe, it had just won its second straight Premier League championship, Arkadi Gaydamak was still the club’s all-powerful owner and Ehud Olmert was the Prime Minister of Israel.

A lot has obviously happened since the summer of 2008 leading up to Beitar securing its place in the Europa League next season with Monday’s 3-0 win over champion Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Beitar wrapped up fourth place in the standings by opening a four-point gap over Maccabi Haifa with only one match to play, completing its revival under coach Guy Levy.
