Soccer: Toto Cup underdogs look to spoil party in semis

Hapoel Haifa and Ashdod SC will try and deny Maccabi Tel Aviv and Maccabi Haifa a classic showdown in the Toto Cup final when the competition’s semifinals are played on Wednesday.
Hapoel Haifa faces Maccabi Tel Aviv in Petah Tikva, while Ashdod plays Maccabi Haifa in Netanya in the first semi of the day.
Hapoel Haifa sits rock-bottom of the Premier League standings after losing its past two matches by a 4-0 scoreline, including the derby against Maccabi on Sunday.
Coach Reuven Atar was given until after Saturday’s match against Hapoel Acre to save his job and he is hoping the lack of pressure on Wednesday will allow his players to pick up some confidence ahead of the weekend’s crucial league action.
