  1. ^ Due to infringements from both sides, the match result was annulled and both clubs were disqualified from the competition.[1]
  2. ^ The match was set to be played at Tirat Carmel. However, the venues were switched days before the match and the sides weren't notified on time, making each side waiting for its opponent in its own ground.[3] The league and cup committee ruled that Hapoel Petah Tikva won the match and advanced to the quarter-finals.[4]
