CD Leganés vs. Real Sociedad

Wednesday, January 05, 2022 – 10:00 AM EST at Estadio Municipal de Butarque   

Form, Mentality, Spanish Cup Odds, and Trends 

  • Real Sociedad have won 3 consecutive Copa del Rey meetings 
  • Real Sociedad have kept a clean sheet in their previous 3 domestic meetings 

Great Price on the 2019/20 Copa del Rey Champs                     

Real Sociedad will be eager to repeat their 2019/20 cup lifting triumphs when they visit second-tier Leganés for a round of 32 Copa del Rey meeting on Wednesday.  

One win away from reaching the quarterfinals, Sociedad should have a significant confidence advantage when facing a Segunda division squad battling at the bottom of the table. The visitors continue fighting for a European finish in La Liga, whilst Los Pepineros struggle for success this term.  

The previous Copa del Rey round saw Leganés struggle to progress past third division Cultural Leonesa, needing extra time and a scrappy set of goals to see them through. This form doesn’t bode well facing Real Sociedad, despite the La Liga team suffering from COVID-19 absences.  

Sitting seventh in the La Liga table and boasting a qualification position in the Europa League playoffs is evidence that Real Sociedad cannot be underestimated – COVID ridden or not.       

Final Thoughts | Copa del Rey Round of 32 Betting Picks 

Ten players have received positive COVID-19 tests within the Sociedad squad, but Leganés are suffering in front of goal with the long-term absence of Fede Vico. 

Sociedad’s recent signing of PSG’S Rafinha can undoubtedly assist their absentees in midfield, but overall, they should still have too much for Leganés. Of course, domestic results for Sociedad haven’t been great. Still, they deliver consistent results in cup competitions, and we shouldn’t expect anything less than a victory when up against a lackluster Leganés.     

Leganés vs. Real Sociedad Score Prediction: Leganés 0 – R Sociedad 2

Linares Deportivo vs. FC Barcelona 

Wednesday, January 05, 2022 – 01:30 PM EST at Estadio Municipal de Linarejos  

Form, Mentality, Spanish Cup Odds, and Trends 

  • Linares are conceding an average of 0.50 goals in their Copa del Rey games 
  • Barcelona are unbeaten in 5 of their last 6 domestic outings  
  • Two divisional tiers separate these teams  

32 Times a Charm?         

It’s incredible to ponder on Barcelona and their Copa del Rey history, having won the competition on a staggering 31 occasions. Having won the prestigious Spanish trophy on six occasions in the previous ten years, it’s no surprise the Catalan outfit are highly favored to capture this year’s silverware once again. 

Linares Deportivo is a third-tier Spanish team that’s only been operating as a professional club since 2009, they’ve never reached an elite level of football, but they’ll be ecstatic to compete on the same pitch as Barca.   

Suffering a 15-point deficit from league leaders Real Madrid, Barcelona’s sights could be set on alternative paths to put trophies in cabinets this season. Don’t expect Xavi’s side to allow Linares a free ride, especially with such a rich Copa del Rey history to live up to.  

Final Thoughts | Copa del Rey Round of 32 Betting Picks 

Surprisingly, betting value can be found in multiple betting markets. This is due to the fact that numerous first-team players will be missing, and Barca’s away form hasn’t been positive.  

With that said, Barcelona has won five of their last six Cop del Rey meetings, and despite finding victory in just one of their previous four away meetings, Linares shouldn’t cause the 31x cup winners many issues in front of goal.     

Linares vs. Barcelona Score Prediction: Linares 0 – Barcelona 3  

Soccer Pick: Barcelona HT/FT (-120) with Everygame (visit our Everygame Review) [1.83] [1.20u wager returns 1u of profit]
