The games played in Copa del Ray are not exactly the main concern for Primera Division teams, but this particular one is completely uninteresting for both squads. With Sevilla winning the first leg by five goals to none away from home, nothing can change in the second leg and both teams look forward for weekend fixtures.
Match: Sevilla vs Mallorca
Bet: Under 2.5 Goals
Odds: Bet365 2.10
Sevilla will host in-form Valencia at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan while Mallorca travels to Valladolid and neither teams will have an easy mission in securing points. This explains the lack of interest towards the game scheduled this Wednesday, and punters have no reason to expect another high-scoring game. The hosts will probably give Negredo another chance to score by starting him as the only striker, but coach Michel will most likely replace him by half time with Manu.
Neither of these players have been particularly successful lately, and the goals were scored by defensive players and midfielders. The visitors are equally unwilling to risk their fitness for scoring a goal, especially with their fate being already sealed. Just like their opponents they will start with a 4-5-1 formation that could feature a single striker, Hemed. Victor will sit on the bench but once again the coach is expected to rest his top scorer and operate some replacements at half time.
This game is heading towards a rather boring low scoring draw, or a narrow home victory, with the latter outcome being totally unprofitable for punters. Instead of backing Sevilla to secure a non-meaningful victory, it is better to take the odds of 2.10 offered by Bet365 for less than 2.5 goals to be scored.
