All to play for in State Cup semifinals

On the back of yet another dejecting failure, Maccabi Tel Aviv aims to find some cheer in a bitter campaign when it faces Ironi Ness Ziona in the State Cup semifinals at Yad Eliyahu Arena on Monday night.

Maccabi Rishon Lezion plays Maccabi Ashdod in the first semi of the day, and with the yellow-and-blue looking so vulnerable this season, each and every team in the last four believes this could be its year.

Rishon, Ashdod and Ness Ziona have never won the cup or the championship, while Maccabi has claimed 51 local league titles and 42 cups, including the past six.
