Jerusalem is of course a clear favorite in this game. She leads 0: 2 in direct league meetings this season, including a 30-point victory in October. The Reds also lead 1: 5 in the all-time balance between the teams in the Cup, with the last time being in the eighth of 2017/18, when the Jerusalemites won 74:90.
Nahariya for her part did not come as a backdrop. The team is in good momentum with four wins in its last five games, and on the lines it shows an experienced coach who has previously won the Cup with Hapoel Holon in 2009. She is also encouraged by the fact that she “earned” Jarl McNeill, after the tribunal refrained from alienating him following a confrontation with Tal Dan in the semifinals./>
