Hapoel Beersheba remained on course to reach a second straight State Cup final after claiming a 2-1 win at Maccabi Petah Tikva on Wednesday night in a tricky tie in the round of 16.

The bitter memories from last season’s 6-2 drubbing in the final at the hands of Maccabi Tel Aviv will live long in the memory of Beersheba fans and players.

Beersheba currently leads the Premier League standings by one point from Maccabi and is targeting its first championship in 40 years.

However, it is still desperate to also end its 19-year drought in the cup, coming through a stern test in Petah Tikva on Wednesday.

Anthony Nwakaeme gave Beersheba the lead after 13 minutes, with Ben Biton stealing the ball on the right flank, squaring it for Maor Buzaglo who left the Nigerian with an easy finish from five meters out.
