Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
Lezama Facilities will host Sunday’s Copa del Rey matinee between Amorebieta and Celta Vigo. The La Liga 2 outfit do not seem to be at their sharpest, with the team losing four of their last five league matches. The Basques are eager to get back on course as soon as possible, but they face a tough challenge against Os Celeste. There are no fresh injury concerns in the home team ahead of the visit of Celta.
The Galicians, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 3-2 loss to Villarreal, with the team beating Real Betis 2-1 in front of home fans and they are seen as favourites to win the Spanish Cup game as well. Talented Sweden international Williot Swedberg is widely expected to return to the starting XI after scoring a late winner against los Beticos, while Jonathan Bamba is on international duty. Anyhow, away win should be considered as Celta Vigo have been showing signs of improvement of late.
