Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
All eyes will be on Estadio Jose Zorrilla when Real Valladolid and Levante take on each other in the Copa del Rey last 16. Real Valladolid set up a meeting with Levante by beating Pena Deportiva 4-1 after extra time, but they do not want to stop now. La Pucela are on a three-game winless run in La Liga, but seeing that they have been scoring goals for fun of late, we predict that the hosts are going to find the net in Tuesday’s clash.
Experienced midfielder Roque Mesa returns from a domestic ban. Los Levantinos, on the other hand, defeated Fuenlabrada in the previous round of the Spanish Cup. Since the two teams played out a 2-2 draw at Estadi Ciutat de Valencia at the weekend, both teams to score betting option should be considered. The likes of Campana, Doukoure, and Vukcevic are all sidelined with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Shon Weissman):
After spending his youth career Maccabi Haifa, Shon Weissman continued wearing the green and white shirt at senior level. The 174-tall forward scored 8 goals in 32 appearances in the league for the Greens before joining Wolfsberger in 2019.
