Soccer: Hapoel Beersheba hoping to burst Maccabi Tel Aviv’s bubble

After completing the most expensive signing in Israeli soccer history on the back of the draw for the Champions League group stage, Maccabi Tel Aviv will need to return its focus to the pitch on Sunday.

The three-time defending Premier League champion visits its main title challenger Hapoel Beersheba at Teddy Stadium in Jerusalem, with Beersheba’s new Turner Stadium still not ready.

Maccabi has been in dreamland since drawing 1-1 with FC Basel last Tuesday to secure its progress to the group stage, where it was drawn on Thursday to face Chelsea, Porto and Dynamo Kiev.
