Commentary

FULL-TIME! Hapoel win famously, courtesy of a 2-0 scoreline against Inter, with goals from Vitor and Buzaglo wrapping up a very surprising away win in the Europa League. Barak's men looked comfortable throughout, with De Boer looking like a man who is low on ideas. That's all that we have time for, we hope to see you again next time.
Good stop from Goresh! Candreva takes aim from a 30-yard free-kick, but the Hapoel goalkeeper does well to push a comfortable save around the post. The Inter set-piece comes to nothing.
L. Taha
Yellow Card
Hapoel Be'er Sheva
Taha gets a yellow card for a cynical tackle on Eder, following a poor pass out wide from Ogu.
We are into the first of three minutes of stoppage time in Milan.
Eder is denied by the offside flag while planting a close-range header over the crossbar, as Inter continue to fire blanks on home soil. De Boer's side only have a few minutes left to claw back some pride.
Nwakaeme takes aim from the edge of the penalty area, but Handanovic makes a great save, before Bitton strikes the crossbar! Two big chances for Hapoel to extend their surprise lead, there.
B. Turgeman
Yellow Card
Hapoel Be'er Sheva
Turgeman's second involvement is a booking, with the substitute immediately getting on the referee's bad side.
B. Turgeman
M. Korhut
Hapoel Be'er Sheva
Korhurt goes off exhausted, with Turgeman introduced for the dying minutes.
Inter win successive corners, but Vitor and then Turgeman head clear. Candreva bends another dangerous cross in towards the back post, but Nwakaeme is present to thwart the hosts. Barak's men really have their backs to the wall now.
Palacio is fed in a dangerous cross from the right-hand side, but he can only win a corner! The set-piece is whipped in and then met by the same Inter player, but Goresh makes a simple save to deny the Argentine striker. De Boer's men are threatening to lose this match with a whimper.
The visitors are less than 10 minutes from a famous win, which would stand them in good stead for the rest of the group stage. Medel and Icardi attempt to link up, but a stray touch from the latter allows for Hoban to cover back. Hapoel are having an easy time of seeing out this clean sheet at the moment.
Hapoel win a free-kick in a dangerous area, but the away side aren't committing too many players forward given the scoreline. Melikson lines it up, but Banega heads half clear, with Palacio doing the rest for the Nerazzurri.
B. Sahar
M. Buzaglo
Hapoel Be'er Sheva
Sahar is given a run out for the final 10 minutes or so, with Buzaglo given a chance to rest.
Goresh claims a cross that was swung in from the right by Candreva, as Inter continue to besiege the Hapoel penalty area with aerial deliveries. Barak is instructing a lot of his players to stay behind the ball, with the hosts forced to play direct, ugly stuff.
Banega bends a free-kick delivery in from the left flank, but Hapoel clear their lines yet again. Moments later, Candreva tries to clip a cross in from the opposite wing, but Korhut blocks, before D'Ambrosio wins a corner. Ranocchia is the target, but the visitors head away, before a second successive cross is flicked to safety by Ogu.
M. Icardi
Felipe Melo
Internazionale
De Boer makes his change at last, replacing Melo with Icardi. The Argentine goes straight up top with Palacio.
Melo clips a long pass forward in search of Eder, with the ex-Sampdoria forward earning a free-kick from Taha. Inter take it quickly, which results in a long-range attempt from Banega, but the ex-Sevilla man's attempt is charged down with ease. Moments later, Goresh makes another simple save.
Inter have 20 minutes to try and claw back at least two goals, with the home fans murmuring their disappointment already. Icardi is getting some instructions on the sideline, with De Boer looking to react to Buzaglo's strike with a prompt change.
M. Buzaglo
Goal
Hapoel Be'er Sheva
GOOOOOOOAL! BUZAGLO MAKES IT 2-0! The Israel international bends a lovely free-kick finish over the wall and into the top corner, doubling the away side's advantage! That is some strike, with Handanovic rooted to the spot.
Buzaglo does well to break down the right-hand side and feed Bitton to the byline, with the full-back earning Hapoel a corner. Nwakaeme is unable to meet a header at the back post, but Hoban wins a free-kick moments later from Nagatomo. 
M. Melikson
Lucio Maranhão
Hapoel Be'er Sheva
Maranhao takes his leave, rather slowly it must be said, with Melikson given the last 20 minutes or so to impress.
Goresh dives in bravely to smother a stray through-ball that Palacio was in a committed chase to reach, with Hapoel narrowly over 20 minutes from a famous victory. Both coaches will be beginning to look to how their benches can change the course of the remaining minutes.
Banega and Palacio try to combine on the edge of the penalty area, with the latter flicked a back-heel in the direction of D'Ambrosio. The Argentine forward's pass, however, is placed far too close to the goalkeeper, who claims simply. Hapoel respond with their own attack, but Hoban shoots inches wide of the far post!
Korhut sparks another break for the away side, but a cut-back to the edge of the box from Nwakaeme is intercepted with ease. Despite Inter's bright start to the second half, they've struggled to recover from Vitor's opener. The Nerazzurri look rather stunned.
Hapoel break down the right-hand side, with play then shifted out to the left. Korhut tries to dip a cross into a dangerous area, but Nagatomo heads clear. Nwakaeme shoots from 20 yards moments later, but the Nigerian forward drags his attempt beyond the near upright.
Candreva is immediately involved with a cross in from the right-hand side, but his delivery is headed clear. Hapoel break, with Maranhao denied at the near post by Handanovic, before a Nwakaeme effort from the rebound is deflected wide. The corner is claimed by the Inter goalkeeper.
A. Candreva
J. Biabiany
Internazionale
Biabiany takes his leave after a disappointing game, with Candreva injected into the fray.
Buzaglo ignores Bitton to his right, instead choosing to shoot from a tight angle at long-range! Handanovic makes a simple save, however, patting down the Israeli midfielder's effort with ease.
Banega takes aim from the aforementioned free-kick, but the ex-Sevilla midfielder bends an awful effort well wide of the left-hand post. Goresh is happy to just watch that one sail out of play.
Inter will feel aggrieved, as it appears there was a foul in the build-up to the Hapoel opener, but the away fans don't care at all! Nagatomo tries to clip a cross into the box, which is half-cleared, with Ogu then giving away a foul for a late tackle on Banega. 
Lucio Maranhão
Assist
Hapoel Be'er Sheva
Maranhao drills a great ball to the back post, with Vitor doing the honours in terms of applying a goalscoring touch.
Miguel Vitor
Goal
Hapoel Be'er Sheva
GOOOOOOOOOAL! VITOR FIRES HOME AT THE BACK POST! The shock result is on the cards. The defender is picked out at the back post, with Maranhao doing well at the right byline, bundling home a finish while unmarked.
J. Murillo
Yellow Card
Internazionale
Murillo gets the first yellow card of the game.
Banega shoots from the edge of the area with a curling strike, but Goresh makes a simple save. Inter are looking a lot more dangerous following De Boer's half-time team talk.
Palacio goes down on the edge of the Hapoel box, but the linesman gives a free-kick to the visitors! Vitor is all over the Argentine's shirt, making that an absolutely awful decision. The away team break down the right, as Bitton crosses in, but Maranhao nods wide of the target yet again.
The home side are moving the ball much better in these opening minutes, but an eventual through ball from Banega is nodded away by Tzedek. Moments later, Eder takes aim from 20 yards out, but fizzes a low shot wide of the left-hand post.
Inter open the second period with some patient possession, with Bitton giving away the ball in the middle of the park. Banega feeds Biabiany, who flicks a backheel to Medel, but the Chilean midfielder shoots wide with the aid of a deflection. The resulting corner is headed clear, before D'Ambrosio fires high and wide from long-range.
É. Banega
M. Brozović
Internazionale
Brozovic is replaced at the break by Banaga, who will offer some penetrating passing from midfield.
We are back underway in the second half at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza! The hosts will need to kick on in the second half if they are to break down this hard-working Hapoel outfit.
HALF-TIME! Both teams go in goalless at the break, with Hapoel giving a good account of themselves in this first half. Maranhao has had two great chances for the visitors, with Eder going closest for Inter by hitting the post. All to play for in Milan!
Korhut breaks to the left byline for Hapoel, with the wing-back able to earn his side a corner. Buzaglo takes, but this time it is Palacio who nods away a clearance.
We're into the first of two minutes of first-half stoppage time.
Palacio makes his way down the left, before drilling in a low cross, but Vitor hacks a rushed clearance away. Eder then tries to create something from just outside the box, but a stray touch finds its way to the opposition goalkeeper.
B. Bitton
Yellow Card
Hapoel Be'er Sheva
Bitton gets a yellow card for handball, after preventing a pass from Brozovic getting in behind him.
Ogu release Nwakaeme down the left-hand side, but Handanovic is quick off his line to tap a clearance into touch. Inter win themselves a free-kick around 30 yards from goal, but it sails straight over the crossbar from Brozovic.
Nagatomo races downt he left and bends in a great cross! Eder takes a good touch at the back post, before setting himself for a powerful shot. The Italy international sends a ferocious effort onto the near upright, and that was really travelling! So close for Inter.
Less than 10 minutes remain in the first half, with Inter struggling to exert dominance in this game. Though that have recovered from a sluggish start and have seen a lot more possession, it has been Hapoel who have had the big chances. Brozovic shoots from the edge of the penalty area, but Ogu makes a good block.
M. Buzaglo
Yellow Card
Hapoel Be'er Sheva
Buzaglo picks up a yellow card for a very late tackle on D'Ambrosio, as the Hapoel midfielder dived into a clumsy sliding challenge. He can have no complaints with that.
Biabiany tracks back to the edge of his own box to make a vital sliding tackle, just as Korhut was threatening to shoot. The hosts concede a corner as a result, which Buzaglo delivers, but Melo rises highest to head a long way clear of the danger zone.
Melo slides in to win an important tackle in the middle of the park, but an attempted counter from D'Ambrosio is promptly ended by Ogu. It appears that the former hurt Hoban, who was looking to cause some problems in the Nerazzurri half. He goes down for treatment, allowing both coaches to speak to their players.
Nwakaeme is the target a sweeping diagonal pass to the left-hand side, but Ranocchia plays a simple ball back to his goalkeeper. Inter break down the left, with Palacio bursting into the clear, but play is pulled back for a supposed foul on Taha.
De Boer's side have settled into this game and started to take control, but Hapoel are a real threat on the break. Bitton does well to clip a good pass into the box for Maranhao to chase, but the physical striker thumps a near-post strike straight at Handanovic. The Slovenia international stayed big!
Buzaglio turns smartly on the edge of the penalty area, but is closed down before he has the chance to shoot, before heading wide of the target from close-range moments later. Hapoel still pose a threat on the counter-attack.
Eder lines up a free-kick effort from 30 yards out, but the ex-Sampdoria forward rattles a low shot straight into the wall. Biabiany follows up and picks up the rebound, but the ex-Parma wide man runs into traffic inside the penalty area and the visitors clear their lines.
Eder sees a cross deflected away from the danger zone, as Inter continue to gain confidence and momentum. Taha gives away a free-kick for a clumsy tackle, as Hapoel start to get deeper and give away more fouls. 
Brozovic bends a corner in from the right-hand side, but D'Ambrosio can only head a long way wide of the back post. Inter win themselves a second set-piece, this time on the opposite flank, but this time the danger is cleared at the near post.
Eder dances into the penalty area, twisting and turning, but Vitor covers across to make a timely tackle and then win Hapoel a free-kick to take the pressure off. Inter are on the move once again from the next attack, but Tzedek makes a good block to deny a cross in from Biabiany.
Eder heads wide with a terrible header, but Inter are at least getting into their stride slightly. The away side are always able to open play out to their wing-backs, but a long ball up towards Maranhao is nodded to safety by Ranocchia. Barak's men are still looking very competitive indeed. Buzaglio briefly goes down after claiming at arm in the face from Melo, but there wasn't much in the challenge at all.
D'Ambrosio manages to win a free-kick from Korhut, as the Hungarian defender accidentally blocked off. Biabiany is fed to the right byline with a short pass, before seeing a great cross flash across the penalty area without any contact from anybody! Warning bells are ringing for Hapoel.
Hapoel's back five is yet to be tested, with their extra central defender not even being called into the question. Biabiany looks to drive down the right flank, but Nwakaeme tracks back to deny the Frenchman. D'Ambrosio then whips in a cross, but Taha heads clear under considerable pressure.
Korhut makes a timely interception to prevent Inter from breaking down the right flank, as De Boer's men fight to get into this game. Melo in particular is looking frustrated, with the ex-Galatasaray midfielder spraying a terrible pass out of play to sum up his woes.
It is still the away side who are causing all of the problems, with Nwakaeme standing out courtesy of some neat skill and technical ability. Inter are just looking a little bit nervous, with the home supporters stunned into silence. Hapoel have flown forward from the very start.
Maranhao is picked out in the penalty area for Hapoel, but the target man nods wide of the left-hand post! That was a big opportunity to break the deadlock. Another good cross in from the wide areas, with Inter struggling to get out of first gear.
Korhut and Nwakaeme combine down the left-hand side well, as the visitors look to try and play with real confidence. Buzaglo is released down the right, but an eventual clearance from Handanovic defuses a dangerous situation for the Nerazzurri. Not the start that the Serie A club would have expected.
Nwakaeme does well to break down the left-hand side and bend in a teasing cross with the inside of his right foot, but Buzaglo can't quite stab a close-range finish home! It is the away side who have created the early chances. Eder is the target of a quick pass over the top for Inter, but Tzedek cuts it out well.
Palacio races away down the right-hand side, before a switch of play is just about kept in by Brozovic. Eder then has a shot with his right foot, but Ogu makes a good block in central midfield. 
Vitor fires a quick, low pass into Buzaglo, with the latter able to earn a free-kick in a good area. The hosts, however, head the set-piece clear with ease. Inter enjoy the majority of the ball from the off, with Hapoel happy to sit back.
We are underway in the first half in Milan! Inter will be looking to improve on a forgettable start to Serie A under De Boer, with Hapoel sure to try and frustrate their way to an unlikely result.
