Sure win prediction today for Real M-Real Sociedad
Real Madrid will try to make another step towards their first Copa del Rey final since 2014, when they won the trophy as well. On Thursday Los Blancos will host Real Sociedad in a 1/4-finals game from the competition. Let’s talk about this in our sure win prediction today.
Last week Zinedine Zidane’s team clearly showed us its motivation in the Copa del Rey this season. Real Madrid faced Segunda’s Real Zaragoza at the La Romareda and made a very strong performance, winning the game with 4-0. Raphael Varane and Lucas Vasquez scored for Madrid in the first half, while after the break Vinicius Junior and Karim Benzema added two more for the visitors.
Copa del Rey is the only major trophy which Zinedine Zidane have still not won as a Real Madrid manager. Despite of the fact that La Liga and the Champions League are bigger priorities, we have a feeling that this time Zidane will want the Copa del Rey as well.
The good news for Real Madrid is the return of Eden Hazard – one of the biggest stars at the Santiago Bernabeu at the moment. Because of his injuries, Hazard is still about to make a huge impression in the Spanish capital. Surely he would like to make a strong finish of this season in its most decisive phase.
Real Sociedad won’t be an easy opponent to beat, though. The Basques are having a solid season so far, being managed pretty well by Imanol Alguacil. Right now La Real are 8th in La Liga, but they are just two points behind the 6th Atletico Madrid and the Europa League zone.
In order to reach the 1/4-finals of the Copa del Rey the Basques had to go through Osasuna in the previous round. They were flawless at home, beating the Pamplonians with 3-1 at the Anoeta.
That’s our sure win prediction today for the Copa del Rey 1/4-finals game between Real Madrid and Real Sociedad at the Bernabeu. This won’t be easy for the hosts, but they are the favourites here.
