Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
Sevilla will look to book their place in the Copa del Rey last 32 when they face Torremolinos on Wednesday evening. Los Sevillanos aim to go all the way in the Spanish Cup as they have been struggling in La Liga this season, but they will have to prove their worth on the field.
Goalkeeper Bounou, defenders Montiel and Acuna, midfielder Papu Gomez, and attacker En-Nesyri are all out of contention as they took part in the World Cup knockout stages, but regardless of which players will be deployed in the starting XI, away win should be considered as Jorge Sampaoli’s men are hungry for triumphs. Torremolinos did well to beat Recreativo Huelva 4-2 in their last league fixture, but they will have a mountain to climb against the star-studded La Liga outfit. In En-Nesyri’s absence, Rafa Mir is widely expected to lead the line for the away team.
