Our football match prediction:
By beating the likes of Rapido Bouzas, Atletico Baleares and Gimnastic Segoviana, Ponferradina set up a meeting with Villarreal in the last 32 of the Copa del Rey. Ponferradina aim to extend their winning run in the Spanish Cup, but they face an uphill task in Wednesday’s football match against the Yellow Submarine. Anyhow, seeing that the Estadio el Toralin outfit have been struggling in the Segunda B this season, we do not believe that home win should be considered. Villarreal have slim chances of winning the La Liga title and, no doubt, they are determined to go all the way in the Copa del Rey this season. The likes of Sansone and Unai should be recalled to the starting line-up and the duo is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. Taking everything into account, we are tempted to put our money on the La Liga side.
Highlighted Player (Denis Cherychev):
Probably the most famous Russian footballer never to have played for a domestic club, Denis Cheryshev was born in Nizhny Novgorod, but began his career at Sporting Gijon as his father played for the Spanish side at the time. The talented winger eventually caught the eye of Real Madrid and went on to spend eight years in the youth academy at Santiago Bernabeu before he was given a chance to impress on senior level. Due to a fierce competition for places in Madrid, Cheryshev was forced to gain much needed first team experience via loan spells at Sevilla, Villarreal and Valencia, and he showed a great deal of potential during those stints, proving los Blancos were wrong to let him leave. Chersyhev has been in and out of the Russia national team since making his debut in 2012, but there is a good chance he will become an important member of Sbornaya Komanda as soon as he secures regular playing time at club level. The Russian footballer is capable of operating on either wing or through the middle, and he has proved to be quite prolific in terms of both goals and assists.
