Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
Valencia will be aiming to book their place in the Copa del Rey semis when they take on Cadiz at Estadio de Mestalla. Los Che set up a meeting with Cadiz by beating the likes of Cartagena and Baleares, but they do not want to stop now. Valencia sit in 10th place in the La Liga standings, meaning that they will give 100% to book their place in European competitions through Copa del Rey.
New signings Comert, Ilaix, and Bryan Gil are likely to make their Valencia debuts against Cadiz, while both Gabriel Paulista and Jasper Cillessen are sidelined with injuries. The Yellow Submarine, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-0 win over Levante. Cadiz, though, were beaten by Valencia in six of their last seven meetings at “Mestalla”, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. January signings Idrissi, Ruben Alcaraz, Luis Hernandez, and Lucas Perez should play some part for Cadiz in Wednesday’s clash.
Highlighted Player (Maximiliano Gómez):
Commonly referred to as Maxi, the Uruguay striker Maximiliano Gomez is a ball playing forward who does not dive into tackles and is not afraid of a challenge to get closer to goal. Led by a genuine predator’s instinct, Maximiliano Gomez is that kind of a striker who’s always hungry for goals – a trait that’s arguably made him one of the hottest youngsters Uruguay has seen over the past decade.
Maxi Gomez is a strong player with a bulking physique. His friends call him Gucci in reference to a weighty singer from Uruguay – Gustavo ‘El Gucci’ Serafini. Having first stepped on the stage with Defensor Sporting in 2015, Maxi grabbed the spotlight in the penalty shootout against Lanus in the Copa Sudamericana Round of 16 when he displayed commendable courage and composure to send his team through in the competition.
Fearless and utterly intrepid in his exploits, Maxi Gomez was sold to Celta de Vigo in 2017 where he would go on to make an instant impact – with a brace on his debut, in a 3-2 defeat against Real Sociedad.
Highlighted Team (Cadiz):
Cadiz is a professional La Liga club that plays home games at Estadio Ramon de Caranza. The capacity of the stadium is 20,724 people, and it was opened back in September 1955. El Submarino Amarillo are well known for their yellow shirts, with the team wearing blue jerseys when playing on the travels.

Cadiz currently compete in la liga, with the team securing promotion to the Spanish top flight at the end of the 2019/20 season following a 15-year absence. Cadiz are one of those teams who produce much better showings at home than on the travels. Magico Gonzales is the most notable Cadiz player.
The legendary hot-tempered attacker scored 57 goals in 194 league appearances for El Submarino Amarillo, and he was well known for his amazing dribbling skills. Magico Gonzales scored 21 goals in 62 appearances for the Salvador national football team.
