Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
A place in the Copa del Rey round 3 will be at stake when David faces Goliath at Estadio Eusebio Arce. Sevilla are seen as hot favourites to win Sunday’s football game against Escobedo, but boss Julen Lopetegui must warn his men against complacency. Los Sevillanos dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with Athletic Club in their last league fixture, meaning that they are eager to return to winning ways.
Regardless of which players will be deployed in the starting XI away win should be considered as Julen Lopetegui’s team has strength in depth. Escobedo did well to eliminate Malaga in their Copa del Rey opener, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against the famous Andalusian side. You should bear in mind that the two teams meet for the first time ever in a competitive match.
