Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
CD Coria and Real Sociedad go head to head at Estadio La Isla in a David-vs-Goliath Copa del Rey game. CD Coria aim to build on back-to-back wins over Atletico Paso and Villanovense, but they will have mountain to climb against the La Liga side. Anyhow, we are positive that the Segunda B side will rely on their solid defence in Wednesday’s clash.
Meanwhile, the Basques rolled over lower-league side Cazalegas in their Spanish Cup opener, and even though Japan midfielder Takefusa Kubo has recently returned from international duty, anything but a routine away win would be a major surprise. Mikel Merino is available for selection despite his La Liga ban, while Mikel Oyarzabal remains in the recovery room. Nigeria international Umar Sadiq is out for the rest of the season, and, in his absence, Alexander Sorloth should continue to lead the line for the La Liga outfit.
