Our football match prediction:
A place in the Spanish Cup last 16 will be at stake when Malaga and Numancia square off against each other at Estadio La Rosaleda. Los Boquerones have been playing above expectations in La Liga this term and a win over Numancia in the Copa del Rey would help them regain a much-needed confidence. The Andalusian outfit did well to beat the likes of Celta Vigo and Deportivo La Coruna in previous two home games in La Liga and that is giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Tuesday’s football match. Los Numantinos, on the other hand, are fighting hard to secure promotion to the Spanish top flight and it seems as if they are fully focused on the Segunda Division at the moment. Numancia recorded a 2-1 win over Malaga in the first leg, but we predict los Boquerones will overcome the deficit.
