Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
Sevilla will be looking to kick off their Copa del Rey campaign in style when they take on Ciudad de Lucena on Tuesday evening. Los Sevillanos are still playing on three fronts, meaning that boss Julen Lopetegui should use the Spanish Cup game to rest several first-team regulars. Anyhow, away win should be considered regardless of which players will be deployed in the starting XI. The likes of El Haddadi, Escudero, Navas, and Vaclik are all likely to miss the game with injuries.
The Tercera Division side, on the other hand, face an uphill task in their Copa del Rey opener, and seeing that Sevilla produced a fine display in a hard-fought 1-0 win over Getafe, we do not believe that the underdogs are capable of making a miracle at Estadio Ciudad de Lucena. Los Sevillanos have slim chances of winning the domestic trophy, and they will surely give 100% to go all the way in the Spanish Cup.
