acl to_server1 path_reg  MSISDN/[0-9]+[0-3]
acl to_server2 path_reg  MSISDN/[0-9]+[4-6]
acl to_server3 path_reg  MSISDN/[0-9]+[7-9]

use_backend server1 if to_server1

use_backend server2 if to_server2
use_backend server3 if to_server3

Depending on youa actual URL space, it could be sufficient to use this instead as the acls which would be faster as it does not involve any ACLs:

acl to_server1 path_end 0 1 2 3

Please check section 7 for more details.

This is currently not possible with HAproxy. It can not alter or check anything inside the HTTP body currently. You can only access inside the HTTP header section here.
