Three men were banned Thursday from the weekend's soccer match between Betar Jerusalem and Hapoel Tel Aviv.

The three, aged 17-20 from central Israel, were taken in for questioning by police on Tuesday on suspicion of planning to cause disturbances at the game due to take place at Teddy Stadium on Saturday night.

The three were released on condition of staying away from the match, and further arrests were expected in preparation for the game.

Police were taking extra precautions ahead of the match. Gates will be opened at 5 p.m. to allow for extra careful security checks, and police called on fans to arrive early.
