Our football match prediction:
Thanks to a 4-1 win over Deportivo La Coruna at Estadio Municipal de Riazor Las Palmas moved one step closer to booking their place in the Copa del Rey last 16. Los Amarillos have been struggling in the La Liga in the first half of the season and, no doubt, yet another win over the Galician outfit will give them a confidence boost. Las Palmas are with one foot in the next round, but coach Pako Ayestaran must warn his men against complacency. Deportivo La Coruna will have a mountain to climb in Wednesday’s football match against los Amarillos if they are to advance to the last 16 of the Spanish Cup, but we do not believe that they are capable of making a miracle at Estadio de Gran Canaria. Anyhow, seeing that both teams are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, yet another lively contest is on the cards and we predict the two sides played out a high-scoring draw in the reverse fixture.
