Our football match prediction:
It has been 30 years since Real Sociedad won their last Copa del Rey trophy and, no doubt, they want to repeat the success. The Basque team have been producing fine displays in La Liga this season and it is no surprise they are considered favourites on paper to win Thursday’s football match against Lleida Esportiu. La Real have big ambitions for the 2017/2018 Spanish Cup campaign and we predict that they will go all guns blazing at the Segunda B side when the two teams take on each other at Camp d’Esports de Lleida. Lleida Esportiu are fully focused on securing promotion to Segunda Division and that is yet another reason why away win should be considered. It has to be noted that the two teams meet for the first time ever in a competitive match. A man to watch in the away team will be former Las Palmas attacker Willian Jose, who has been in a very good form this term.

Although he is primarily a defender, Reyes has played as a defensive midfielder too. He made his professional debut with Club America in 2010 starting as a midfielder but quickly moving into his more naturally suited central defender role.
