Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
After failing to beat Real Valladolid in La Liga at the weekend, Valencia will be looking to give fans some cheer when they host Sporting Gijon at their Estadio de Mestalla in the Copa del Rey last 16, return leg. Los Che suffered a 2-1 loss to the Segunda Division side in the first leg, meaning that they are likely to leave their hearts on the field in Tuesday’s football match in order to overcome the deficit. Coach Marcelino mixed the squad in the first leg, but we predict that he is going to field the best possible side this time out. Valencia are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we are positive that they are going to prove their worth on the field. Los Rojiblancos did well to beat los Che in front of home fans, but we do not believe that they are capable of making a miracle at Estadio de Mestalla.
Highlighted Player (Daniel Wass):
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.
Eleven years later (2006) he moved to Brondby and he made his senior debut for the club in the 2007/2008 season. Wass played for the Danish club until 2011, when he moved to Benfica on a five-year deal, but he was immediately sent on loan to French club Evian. After making 29 appearances for les Roses, the pacey winger moved to Spain, signing a five-year contract with the La Liga club.
That proved to be the most significant decision of his career as he impressed in the 2015/2016 Primera Division campaign with Os Celeste, making six assists for his teammates, while scoring two goals in the process. Over the years Wass has established himself as an irreplaceable first-team regular at Celta and it is well known that he made it to the Europa League semis with the Galician outfit in the 2016/2017 season.
Highlighted Team (Sporting Gijon):
Sporting Gijon are a Spanish football club that competes in La Liga. Sporting Gijon’s home ground is El Molinon, the stadium that was built in 1908. El Molinon is the oldest football field in Spain and the capacity of the stadium is 30,000. Sporting Gijon’s home kit is red and white and the club’s main rivals are Real Oviedo. The two teams take on each other in the Asturian derby. Sporting Gijon did remarkably well to finish the 1978/1979 La Liga campaign in second position in the standings and that is considered the club’s biggest success. Los Rojiblancos were runners-up in Spanish Copa del Rey in 1981 and 1982, but they have yet to win the Spanish Cup. The club was founded in 1905 and the club’s original name was Sporting Gijones. Sporting Gijon participated in the UEFA Cup on six occasions, but they did not record a good result in the European competition.
