With a seemingly insurmountable 5-0 advantage, Sevilla attempts to finish off their round-of-16 Copa del Rey match-up with Mallorca on Wednesday at Seville.
Sevilla carries a huge lead going into the second leg of their round-of-16 showdown with Mallorca following their sensational 5-0 victory in front of Mallorca’s home crowd.
The big win means Sevilla just needed to hold Mallorca to score not more than four goals for them to advance in the quarterfinals of the Copa del Rey.
Sevilla will once again lean on their leading goal scorer Alvaro Negredo while players such as Federico Fazio and Ivan Rakitic could step up anytime.
On other hand, Mallorca going into Wednesday’s game with their backs against their wall, though the possibility of comeback should not be overlooked.
Mallorca is coming off a 2-1 victory over a solid team in Betis and will have a real tussle against Spanish la Liga second-placer Atletico Madrid on Sunday.
With Tomer Hemed and Victor Casadesus leading the way, Mallorca can certainly pull off some surprises but they have to do it in bunches against Sevilla.
The Sevilla-Mallorca Copa del Rey tiff marks the third time these two ballclubs face each other with Sevilla winning the first two assignments.
Stan James makes Sevilla available at 1.65 while Mallorca is offered at 6.40. A draw is set at 3.80.
