Linares Deportivo vs Sevilla
Spain – Copa del Rey
Date: Tuesday, 5 January 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Los Palanganas are one of the best teams in the country, and have been so for the past several years. They are also the reigning Europa League champions, and are a top-four prospect every single La Liga season.
They will automatically be the favorite to post a win against any team not named Real Madrid or Barcelona, let alone a squad from the Segunda Division B.
As of now, they have two games in hand in the league, and are still placed sixth in the table. They need a surplus of three points to get into one of the podium spots.
With Barca completely out of form, they consider this season a great opportunity to finish at least second in standings.
And with some tough fixtures in the La Liga right around the corner, a huge win in the Copa del Rey would be extremely helpful in building momentum.
Note that Julen Lopetegui’s men also have a 100% winning record against Alberto Gonzalez’s men in the 21st century.
As such, rightfully anticipate an easy win for Sevilla this Tuesday.
