Http-request set-uri not working

This is what I want:

www.our-domain.com/api --> server.internal.corp:8243/

acl api_url url_beg -i /api
acl host_wso2 hdr_dom(Host) -i www.our-domain.com
use_backend WSO2API if host_wso2 api_url

backend WSO2API
http-request set-uri %[url,regsub(^/api,/,)] if { path_beg /api }
server server1 server.internal.corp:8243 maxconn 32 check inter 5000 source

But It doesn’t work:

So as I can see, the right backend is used but not the regsub.
Where do I go wrong ?
We are using haproxy 2.0.8

Problem Solved.
In another log-file a saw this:
WARN {org.apache.synapse.transport.passthru.SourceHandler} - I/O error: Unrecognized SSL message, plaintext connection?

So I changed the backend to:
server server1 server.internal.corp:8243 maxconn 32 check ssl verify none inter 5000 source
