Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
As expected, Real Sociedad defeated Mirandes 2-1 in San Sebastian in the first leg of the Copa del Rey semis. La Real are with one foot in the Spanish Cup final, but they can’t afford any complacency in Wednesday’s football match at Estadio Municipal de Anduva. The Segunda division have already eliminated the likes of Celta Vigo, Sevilla, and Villarreal in Copa del Rey, and they are eager to claim yet another major scalp.
Given their attacking potential, we predict that the hosts are going to find the net, but eliminating Real Sociedad in the Spanish Cup semis is easier said than done. Seeing that La Real boss Imanol Alguacil can count on key attackers for the return leg, we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score. Anyhow, a lively contest is on the cards at Estadio Municipal de Anduva.
Highlighted Player (Mikel Oyarzabal):
Intelligence is not an attribute you will find in Mikel Oyarzabal’s stats with Real Sociedad but this tricky winger is a highly knowledgeable winger who will use both brain and feet while playing. For a player born in Eibar, who made his first steps in his hometown club, it was always going to be a choice between Athletic Bilbao and Real Sociedad for Oyarzabal.
La Real saw their chance and grabbed this gem of a player at a young age, helping him develop into a proper professional throughout their youth ranks. Mikel Oyarzabal has spent the entirety of his senior career with the Basque behemoths where he’d use his ability to fill in a number of positions up top much to his own benefit.
Oyarzabal’s positioning and movement are work of a tactical genius, whereas it is his nous to find details to exploit that best define him as a player. Having come through the youth categories of the Spanish national team, Oyarzabal also has a senior cap next to his name. It was in 2016 that he also represented the Basque region, scoring on his debut to cap a 3-1 win over Tunisia.
