Maccabi Haifa 3:1 Hapoel Beer Sheva

Two first half Gaynor Plet goals at Sammy Ofer Stadium did in Beer Sheva as the Reds couldn’t find an answer for the Dutch striker. Eliran Atar scored the Greens third goal as a late Tony Nwakaeme strike gave Beer Sheva a consolation prize that was too little too late as Haifa will head to Jerusalem to play for the Israel State Cup against Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Maccabi Tel Aviv 3:2 Bnei Sakhnin

Sakhnin started strong opening the scoring on a Firas Mugrabi goal, but Barak Itzhaki evened up the game soon thereafter. Shlomi Azulay gave the Israeli-Arab club a 2:1 lead, but a penalty goal by Eran Zahavi and a gorgeous 85th minute strike by Tal Ben Chaim sent the defending Cup holders into the finals.
