BRIAN SCIARETTA - Friday, April 29, 2011
Leo Krupnik and Maccabi Netanya will host Bryan Gerzicich and Hapoel Kiryat Shmona in the second round of the Israeli Championship playoffs as both teams look to make a push for the Europa League.

Krupnik is expected to start for Netanya in central defense and Gerzicich is likely to start in defensive midfield for Kiryat Shmona.

After last week's stunning 2-1 upset over Maccabi Haifa on the road, Maccabi Netanya have moved into fourth place and trail Maccabi Tel Aviv by just three points for third place and the last qualifying spot for the Europa league.

Hapoel Kiryat Shmona dropped their first game of the playoffs to Maccabi Tel Aviv 3-1 and have fallen into fourth place but are only one point behind Maccabi Netanya and four points behind Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Neither team is reporting any injuries at this time.
