Well Analysed And Selected 10 Odds Copa Del Rio Wednesday Football

Real Sociedad vs Athletico Madrid;

A spot in the Copa del Rey quarter-finals will be at stake when Real Sociedad and Atletico Madrid face each other at Reale Arena on Wednesday evening. The Basques set up a meeting with Atletico by beating Leganes on the road, but they will have a mountain to climb in the last 16. Important attacker Alexander Isak is unlikely to recover in time to face los Rojiblancos as he limped off with injury in a 1-0 win over Celta Vigo at the weekend, while Fernandez, Monreal, and Barrenetxea are out of contention with injuries.

Portu is widely expected to replace Isak in the starting XI. Diego Simeone’s troops, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from the Spanish Super Cup loss to Athletic Club. Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards in San Sebastian, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. Jose Gimenez is banned for the visitors following his sending off in the loss to Athletic.

Elche vs Real Madrid;

Elche will look to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Villarreal when they take on Real Madrid on Thursday evening. Los Franjiverdes are on a three-game winning run in all competitions, but Carlo Ancelotti’s troops will pose a much bigger threat for the hosts than their previous rivals. Lucas Boye is pushing for a start after scoring the winner against the Yellow Submarine, while both Fidel and Palacios are rated doubtful for the match.

Los Blancos, on the other hand, are high on spirits following the triumph in the Spanish Super Cup final. Real Madrid have big ambitions for the Copa del Rey as well, and seeing that Carlo Ancelotti can count on key players for Thursday’s clash, away win should be considered. Eder Militao is banned for the match
