Bitton holds possession and Shabtai can't help himself, sliding into a foul, earning himself a booking, and costing his team time.

Hapoel sacrifice a defender, bringing off Miguel Vitor for Shabtai, a striker. It looks like he's going to play in front of a back three.

Another right-wing corner for Hapoel, Buzaglo with it, and when it's headed clear, Buzaglo, just outside the box, has a long time to line up his volley, getting his hip above the ball and his toes down. But, though he gets a good connection, it's not quite good enough, and he hits his shot straight at Gordon.

Celtic win a free-kick in centrefield and Lustig prevaricates over its taking, earning himself a yellow card.

Final change for Celtic: Sviatchenko replaces McGregor, so Celtic are probably going to go to three centre-backs.

At last, Celtic muster an attack. Rogic slides a pass for Dembele and at inside-left, he unleashes a curler that flashes just wide of the far post. That was very close indeed - from the camera's angle, or my perception of it at least, it looked like it was going in.

Change for Celtic: Dembele on for Griffiths. So Janko is still there and, to Sutton's disgust, so too is McGregor.

GOAL! HAPOEL BE'ER SHEVA 2-0 CELTIC (HOBAN) (AGG 4-5) Oh my! This is so very, very awful! Bitton crosses from the right, it's travelling so slowly it's almost going backwards, and Gordon claims it after the bounce, but tentatively. He bumps into Janko when he should clean him out, drops the ball, and Hoban, behind him, taps in from a yard. The turner is absolutely bouncing! Celtic are rocking!

Half-time: Hapoel Be'er Sheva 1-0 Celtic (aggregate 3-5). The bad news is I lost for a few minutes; the good news is nothing of note happened.

Another enforced changed for Hapoel: Melikson, the captain - he's been a threat - has to depart, to be replaced by Buzaglo.

Hapoel are moving ball really quickly, looking for switches but also one-touch stuff around the box. Melikson tries a long ball to Sahar, cutting in from inside-left, and he gets a run on Janko, who isn't really paying attention. He chests down, but the touch takes him wide, and his shot doesn't bother Gordon.

GOAL! HAPOEL BE'ER SHEVA 1-0 CELTIC (SAHAR) (AGG 3-5). Radi's corner is a decent one, swinging away towards the penalty spot. Sahar is up early, hanging on top of Brown, and he leans back well to powerguide a header towards the bottom-right corner, where neither Gordon nor McGregor can keep it out. What a first touch! Game on!

GORDON SAVES RADI'S PENALTY! He smashes it low and hard, but nowhere near the bottom-left corner for which he's aiming, and it's actually a fairly easy save, he said churlishly.

Lovely move from Hapoel, starting wide on the right and moving through the middle to inside left. A quick exchange of passes around the box, and Janko is late on Davidzada right on the edge. It's probably outside, on reflection, but there was no need to make the challenge in that way and the ref points to the spot, then books Janko for good measure.

Davidzada shimmies inside onto his right foot and finds Hoban, who drives a low shot that Gordon saves easily enough.

And off we go. There's an absolutely crackling atmosphere, more so than you'd expect in a country without much football culture. But people are bouncing, the megaphones are in play, and basically, you want to be there.
