Maccabi Tel Aviv lost 5-1 to Besiktas JK in Istanbul on Thursday night in a game which saw a heavy police presence amid fears tensions between Israel and Turkey would lead to violence in the stadium.

Thousands of protesters waved flags and chanted anti-Israel slogans outside of the stadium, but no incidents of violence were reported in the stands. More than 2,000 police were present at the Europa League Group E opener.
