Venue: Kiryat Eliezer, Haifa
Kickoff: Today, 19.00 Local timezone
Referee: Shai Shitrit
Haifa starts the third round with the easiest game on paper, at home against relegation battlers Hapoel Kfar Saba. Kfar Saba have been unlucky for many matches this season and ever since Ohana got the job they look even better, but looks like even their luck has given up on survival. They won't be a walk in the park but it will be a surprise if Haifa doesn't win comfortably. Having said that the last game between both teams a few weeks ago ended in 1:0 by an own goal only.
Last week Haifa had troubles beating Netanya until the late minutes when substitute youngster Ben Bassat got an equaliser and grabbed a penalty kick as well. Kfar Saba lost a 2:0 lead to a dissapointing draw with Ashdod. Both teams won in their cup games in midweek.
Probable Haifa lineup:
Davidovich, Saban, Olarra, Benado, Keisi, Tal, Dircau, Boccoli, Zandberg, Colautti, Arbeitman
Refaelov and Ben Bassat are expected to come on as subs again.
