Maccabi Haifa celebrated their place in the Last 16 of the Israeli State Cup in dramatic fashion after defeating Hapoel Tel-Aviv in a penalty shootout. Regulation saw the two teams play to a 1-1 draw and after a scoreless extra period, the two teams were sent to a penalty shoot out. 
With Maccabi Haifa ahead 4-3 in the shootout, Athanasiadis, who was subbed on later in the game, cooly stepped up and netted home the winning penalty to send his side to the next round of the competition. Athanasiadis has had a disappointing spell in Israel since joining the club over the summer, but was the hero on Sunday night for the Haifa side.
