Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
Formentera did well to shock Athletic Bilbao in the last 32 of the Copa del Rey, but they are unlikely to claim yet another major scalp in the Spanish Cup. The Segunda B side suffered a heavy 3-1 loss to Deportivo Alaves at home in the first leg of the last 16, meaning that they have little to play for in Wednesday’s football match. Formentera have no other choice but go all guns blazing at the La Liga side in the return and we predict that the hosts will have a number of opportunities to score on the break. Alaves are high on confidence ahead of the Estadio de Mendizorroza clash and they are likely to record yet another win over the Segunda B team. Deportivo Alaves defeated Getafe in their last home game in the Copa del Rey and, taking everything into account, there is a big value in betting on the Basque outfit.
Highlighted Player (Enzo Zidane):
Enzo Zidane is the son of a famous French footballer Zinedine Zidane. Enzo began his career at the youth team of Juventus and in 2004 he joined La Liga giants Real Madrid. The talented midfielder was making progress year by year during his spell at Real Madrid and it has to be noted that he played 78 games for Castilla in Segunda Division. In the summer of 2017 he joined La Liga side Deportivo Alaves signing a three-year deal with the club for an undisclosed fee. Enzo was born in Bordeaux, France on March 24, 1995 and he was baptized by his father Zinedine in honour of legendary Uruguayan footballer Enzo Francescoli. Speaking of his international career, the Alaves midfielder is eligible to play for Spain or France at senior level. Enzo Zidane has one cap for Spain U15 team and he made two appearances for France U19 team. His main position is attacking midfield, but he is used as a winger as well.
Highlighted Team (Alaves):
Alaves are a Spanish football club located in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Alava. The club were founded in 1921 and they play their home games at Estadio Mendizorrotza. The capacity of the stadium is 19,840 and it has to be noted that it is the third oldest stadium in Spanish football. After spending several years in the Spanish Segunda Division, los Babazorros returned to the top flight in 2016. The colour of Alaves’ home kit is blue and white and the club’s local rivals are fellow Basque sides Real Sociedad, Athletic Club, Osasuna and Eibar. Alaves made it to the UEFA CUP final in 2001, but they were beaten by Liverpool 5-4 in a thrilling football clash. Anyhow, that is still regarded as the club’s biggest success. Los Babazorros booked their place in the Copa del Rey quarter-finals on four occasions and they have yet to win the Primera Division trophy.
