Tonight, we take a look at some action coming from the Copa del Rey from Spain
Copa Del Rey
Real Sociedad to beat Real Oviedo @ 1.80 (Betfair) – 2 points
Real Sociedad will be extremely motivated and pumped up after going undefeated for 3 games in a row now with 2 victories and a draw. They have employed new manager David Moyes and have been extremely motivated under him. A clear improvement was shown in their last game with a 3-0 victory against Elche from a hat-trick from Carlos Vela. This is an opportunity for David Moyes to stamp his authority with a convincing win away from home for his new side. Additionally, its important for Moyes to rebuild his career, and winning a trophy can be the 1st step in this process
Real Oviedo are currently in the third year of Spanish football, so there is a clear gulf in class between the 2 sides. While they currently top Segunda B division, they will still find it difficult at home against a quality opposition like Real Sociedad who will have nearly a full strength side to choose from. Miguel Linares will be the one to watch out who has 18 goals for Ovideo, and it might be worth a personal punt for him to find the net. They lost their last game out against a Zamora side who are sitting at the bottom half of the table.
Defensively they have been only decent against some of the better side in the league, but facing a La Liga outfit can be a completely different scenario, and I expect David Moyes’ men to get the better of their opponents in this game.
