Haifa knocked out of cup; Beitar advances

Maccabi Haifa’s State Cup defense ended at the first hurdle on Saturday, while Maccabi Tel Aviv and Beitar Jerusalem both safely progressed to the round-of-16.

Haifa claimed the cup for the first time since 1998 last season, beating Maccabi Tel Aviv in the final. With its Premier League campaign floundering, winning just one of its past six matches to fall to fourth place, Haifa was hoping the cup would once more prove to be a pleasant distraction.
