Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
Estadio de la Victoria will host Sunday’s football game between Real Jaen and Levante. Real Jaen do not seem to be on top of their game ahead of the Copa del Rey clash, with the team experiencing all sorts of problems at the back in back-to-back losses to the likes of Loja and Linares Deportivo. The Tercera Division side are determined to secure promotion to the Segunda B, meaning that the Spanish Cup game against Levante is not of big importance for them.
Los Levantinos, on the other hand, produced a fine display in a 2-1 loss at Atletico Madrid in their last league match. Paco Lopez’s charges have big ambitions for the 2019/2020 Copa del Rey campaign; therefore, we predict that they are going to take the Real Jaen clash very seriously. You should bear in mind that Levante outclassed Melilla CD 5-0 in their opener.
