Tuesday's draw at Israel Football Association headquarters at National Stadium in Ramat Gan also handed Hapoel Tel Aviv a tricky road match at Hapoel Haifa in the last 32, the first round of matches to include the top-flight clubs.



Bnei Yehuda will expect to get the better of Hapoel Acre at home, with Hapoel Petah Tikva hosting Hapoel Ra'anana and Ahi Nazareth visiting Maccabi Petah Tikva.



"This is clearly a tough draw, but we are focusing on the league for the moment and will think of the cup when the time is right," Maccabi Tel Aviv coach Avi Nimni said.



Defending cup holder Betar Jerusalem, which is looking for a third straight triumph, visits National League club Maccabi Beersheba while Maccabi Haifa hosts Hapoel Kfar Saba.



"We learned from our loss to Ra'anana in the Toto Cup that there is no such thing as easy draws," Haifa captain Yaniv Katan said, referring to last week's semifinal defeat.





Also Tuesday, the results of the Israel Football Association board elections held on Monday were announced. The Maccabi/Hapoel list received 25 mandates with the Betar/Shimshon list getting a surprise four seats.



The new board will gather for its first meeting on Thursday and is expected to elect Avi Luzon for a second term as IFA chairman.
