Where are the current champions of the competition at Hapoel Jerusalem and a second-tier team with slight European experience at Maccabi Rishon.
This is a game of the second round of the championship despite being the debut of Rishon in the competition.
Hapoel Jerusalem started the competition in the best way with a victory. Despite the slight revolution that existed in the squad they continue to be a very well equipped equipment and with solid names in the high European wheel.
They are a team that will always have defensive problems but offensively they have a lot to give.
The aggressive presence of the Americans attacking the basket will be crucial as this is a team that sometimes goes for love by the outdoor launch.
On the other side we have the Maccabi Rishon who has just lined up for the Israel Cup. They achieved a victory before being eliminated by Maccabi Tel Aviv in a very peremptory way.
They are a team that has a lot of foreigners but none of them is a name that jumps out of the ordinary, but they will certainly be a playoff team and it can be annoying.
Prognosis Hapoel Jerusalem vs Maccabi Rishon:
After the debacle in Lithuania for the European competitions certainly that the Hapoel wants to return the good graces and a victory in front of its public will be essential.
