Summary of the round of 16 of the Cup: Maccabi Haifa - Hapoel Haifa 1:5 (Sport1)
Maccabi Haifa will require Neta Lavi to stay until after the match against Maccabi Tel Aviv on January 23.
The greens do not intend to stand in the way of the captain, but intend to ask him to complete the move to Gamba Osaka only after the big game in Bloomfield against the second in the table.
As you remember, tomorrow the Japanese team will start their pre-season training and the Spanish coach Danny Poyatos wanted to see Lavi show up for the start of the training, but the Greens are trying to delay the matter in order to get through the game against Maccabi Tel Aviv.
In Haifa, of course, they will try to add a replacement by then, with Eden Kartsev being the leading candidate, but they understand that such a move will also take time and will not happen immediately.
Will there be a little more left?

The 26-year-old Lavi has been playing in Maccabi Haifa's senior team since October 2015, hoisted the championship plate in the last two years and also won the state cup in 2016.
In the derby in the middle of the week in the round of 16 of the cup, he scored a wonderful goal and scored, after which the crowd already said goodbye to him.
He has made 12 appearances for the Israeli national team so far.
