About two months after the stormy derby between them in the Premier League, Maccabi Haifa and Hapoel Haifa will meet this evening (Wednesday) in another battle in the round of 16 of the State Cup.
After the victory over Hapoel Be'er Sheva last Sunday, the champions want to take another step, this after last season they were only stopped in the final by the same Be'er Sheva. Roni Levy's team is not in good shape but will try to surprise against a full Sami Ofer.
Professionally, Barak Becher made quite a few changes in the lineup, with Dolev Haziza and Dylan Batinsica starting for the first time since their injuries.
Mavis Chibuta and Nikita Rocavicia will play in the attack, while Omar Atzili, Dean David and Franzi Piero will start on the bench.
Neta Lavi, also started in the 11, perhaps in his last appearance before moving to Japan.
On the other hand, Roni Levy gave an opportunity in defense to Niso Capiloto who also recently returned from injury when the link will be manned by Gidi Kaniuk, Gal Aral and Liran Serdal.
Roy Mishfati, Shawn Goldberg, Dylan Batvinsika, Abdoulaye Sek, Pierre Corneau, Dolev Haziza, Neta Lavie, Charon Sherry, Ali Muhammad, Mavis Chibuta, Nikita Rukavica.
