19-04-2022 | 21:01Maccabi Next Urban Haifa took solid advantage against BC Levski 2014 after the first game of the 1/4 final series. The Israeli side defeated The Blues 91-83 to take an 8-point advantage over its opponent before the second game on Thursday which will decide the last team in the Final 4.
