State Cup semifinals feature clash of trends

Hapoel Beersheba will never forget the last State Cup match it played at Haifa Stadium.

Playing in its first cup final in 12 years, Beersheba was targeting a first title since 1997 when it faced Maccabi Tel Aviv in last season’s final in Haifa.

It has been trying to overcome the bitter memories ever since after suffering an unprecedented 6-2 defeat to the yellow-and-blue, a humiliation that left scars that will likely never truly heal.
