Jerusalem to face Maccabi Tel Aviv in classic cup final

For the first time in seven years, Maccabi Tel Aviv and Hapoel Jerusalem will meet in the State Cup final.

Maccabi, which is targeting its sixth consecutive cup, claimed a dramatic 90-87 overtime win over Maccabi Haifa, while Jerusalem eased to a 97-65 victory over Hapoel Eilat in the first semifinal of the night at the Jerusalem Arena.

Stormy and perhaps even snowy weather is expected in Jerusalem ahead of Thursday’s final. However, there is sure to be a heated atmosphere at the arena ahead of another installment of the classic rivalry.
