Cup craze grips Jerusalem ahead of semifinals

Maccabi Tel Aviv and Hapoel Jerusalem are just one win away from setting up a classic showdown in the State Cup final. However, Maccabi Haifa and Hapoel Eilat have every intention of spoiling the party in Monday’s semifinals at the Jerusalem Arena.

Maccabi and Jerusalem haven’t met in the cup final since 2008 when Hapoel erased a 20-point deficit in the fourth quarter to record a remarkable victory and lift the trophy for a second straight year.

Jerusalem hasn’t won a title since, failing to even reach the league or cup finals over the past six years.
