Hapoel Tel Aviv supporters were expelled from the stadium during their team's UEFA Cup second qualifying round first leg away to Bosnian side Siroki Brijeg on Thursday after they started throwing fire crackers, setting fire to several seats. At least one of the fire crackers landed in the home fans' section of the ground. The referee stopped the game for some 20 minutes before the decision was made to kick out the Hapoel fans, who threw the fireworks in celebration of a goal by Abedi which gave the Israeli side a 1-0 lead.
