Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
After shocking Real Madrid in the quarter-finals, Real Sociedad will be looking to move one step closer to winning Copa del Rey trophy when they host Mirandes at their Reale Arena. La Real are brimming with confidence ahead of the first leg as they defeated their local rivals Athletic Club in the Basque derby at the weekend. Sweden rising star Isak, who scored the winner against the Lions, is likely to lead the line for the hosts.
Mirandes, on the other hand, are a real force to be reckoned with at home. The Segunda Division have defeated the likes of Celta Vigo, Sevilla, and Villarreal in front of home fans on their way to the semis, but spoiling Real Sociedad’s party in San Sebastian is easier said than done. Given la Real’s impressive home record, Andoni Iraola’s men are unlikely to claim yet another major scalp in the Spanish Cup.
