Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
All eyes will be on Estadio El Molinon when Sporting Gijon and Real Betis face each other in the Spanish Cup last 32. Los Rojiblancos set up a meeting with los Beticos by beating the likes of Quintanar and Amorebieta, but they face a difficult task in Sunday’s clash against the La Liga side. Sporting Gijon defeated Fuenlabrada 2-1 in their last home game in Segunda Division, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Real Betis.
The Andalusians, on the other hand, did well to beat Huesca in their last league match. Los Beticos have been producing fine displays on the travels of late, and seeing that boss Manuel Pellegrini is once again likely to field a descent starting XI, we are tempted to put our money on the Primera Division side. Borja Iglesias is widely expected to lead the line for the visiting team.
