Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
Real Sociedad and Espanyol face each other in an all-La Liga clash at Reale Arena in the Copa del Rey last 32. Real Sociedad have been struggling to find their form at the start of 2020, with the team suffering back-to-back defeats to the likes of Villarreal (1-2) and Real Betis (0-3) in the previous two league fixtures. Since a win over Espanyol will give the Basques a confidence boost, we are tempted to put our money on Imanol Alguacil’s charges.
Los Periquitos, on the other hand, gave fans some cheer at the weekend, with the team beating Villarreal on the road. Anyhow, away win should not be considered as the visitors are fully focused on securing the La Liga survival. It has to be noted that Espanyol boss Abelardo is likely to mix the squad against Real Sociedad.
