Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
A place in the Copa del Rey last 16 will be at stake when Almeria and Deportivo Alaves face each other at Estadio de los Juegos Mediterraneos. Almeria quickly bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Espanyol, with the team beating Ponferradina in their last league match. To make things even better for the fans, the Andalusians outplayed Numancia in the Copa del Rey. Almeria are eyeing their fourth consecutive win at home ground, and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play against Deportivo Alaves.
A man to watch in the home team will be summer signing Umar Sadiq, who has been scoring goals for fun in Segunda Division this season. The Basques, on the other hand, set up a meeting with Almeria by beating Rincon and Deportivo La Coruna. Anyhow, home win should be considered as Alaves’ main goal is to secure the La Liga survival.
