On the occasion of the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey, Sevilla FC will travel to Real Zaragoza, residents of the Spanish second division.

The Sevillians will be widely favored in this meeting. There is a significant gap between the runners-up Real Madrid in La Liga and the 16th below. The Andalusians will still have to be wary given their scares during the previous round. Against the modest side of Andratx, Sevilla came off narrowly in the penalty shoot-out (1-1, 6-5 qb). There is no doubt that Lopetegui and his players will take this meeting seriously now. The Spanish technician should still take advantage of this round of the Cup to turn and therefore align a reshaped team. With his second place in the league as well as the final phase of the Europa League, many important deadlines await the Sevillians.

The Copa del Rey is arguably not Zaragoza’s priority either. The Blanquillos must fight for maintenance and are focused on this objective. This should not prevent them from playing their card to the full for this gala match, in front of their home crowd.

Sevilla will get the job done on the road. Lopetegui’s side will advance to the Copa del Rey round of 16, beating Zaragoza 2-0.
