Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
There will be fireworks when Malaga and Granada face each other in the Andalusian derby in the Copa del Rey. Malaga have been having their ups and downs in Segunda Division this season, and, as a result, they sit in the 11th place in the standings after 21 rounds. Los Boquerones are tough to beat at home, but they face a difficult task in Sunday’s showdown. Granada, on the other hand, kicked off their Copa del Rey campaign with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Leonesa.
Los Granadinos defeated the Segunda Divison B side after extra time, and seeing that Diego Martinez’s troops are not regarded as good travellers, we are tempted to put our money on draw. Jesus Vallejo returns to the starting line-up after missing the La Liga game against Osasuna through suspension. Anyhow, a close encounter is on the ards at Estadio La Rosaleda.
