Our football match prediction:
A place in the Spanish Cup quarter-finals will be at stake when Valencia and Las Palmas face each other at Estadio de Mestalla on Tuesday evening. Valencia did well to score an important away goal in a 1-1 draw with los Amarillos at Estadio de Gran Canaria and they are now on a quest to defend their “slim lead” in front of home fans. Los Che are a real force to be reckoned with at home and they did well to beat Girona (2-1) at their Estadio Mestalla at the weekend. Las Palmas, on the other hand, are fighting hard to secure yet another La Liga survival, but they sit in the last place in the standings after 18 rounds. Los Amarillos are fully focused on the national championship and that is yet another reason why we predict Valencia will get their job done in the return leg.
