Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
Valencia will be looking to overcome a one-goal deficit in the Copa del Rey tie against Getafe when the two teams face each other at Estadio de Mestalla on Tuesday evening. Los Che are a real force to be reckoned with at home and seeing that they outclassed Villarreal 3-0 in their last home game in La Liga, it is no surprise they are considered hot favourites to emerge triumphant in the return leg. Rodrigo, who found the net in the 3-0 win over the Yellow Submarine, will be the man to watch in the home team. The capital club, on the other hand, have been producing fine performances in all competitions this season, but seeing that they failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Atletico Madrid at the weekend, we believe that the hosts are going to advance to the semi-finals of the Spanish Cup.

Daniel Wass is a Danish footballer who plays for La Liga side Celta Vigo as a winger. The Denmark international was born in Gladsaxe on May 31, 1989 and he started his youth career at BK Avarta at the age of six.
