Betar J'lem, Maccabi Herzliya to play rematch following pitch invasion

Betar Jerusalem's match against Maccabi Herzliya will be replayed after the Israel Football Association High Court overturned the tribunal's original decision on Wednesday morning, claiming that a technical victory for Herzliya is unsportsmanlike. The High Court also canceled the two point deduction handed to Betar this season and reduced next season's point deduction from four points to two. Betar was leading 1-0 against Herzliya on April 13 when thousands of its fans ran on to the field in the 87th minute of the match to celebrate their team closing in on a second straight league title.
