The last quarter final in the Copa Del Rey will see Espanyol host Sevilla on Thursday night. Espanyol were somewhat lucky to advance from the last round overcomign a 2-1 deficit by beating Valencia 2-0. Valencia though had a player sent off after 14 minutes and Espanyol only made the break through in the 79th Minute with Caicedo coming on a sub and netting two goals in the last fifteen minutes. Caicedo has been on fire of late scoring four goals in his last six appearances but most of those have been as a substitute. With Stuani and Garcia starting Espanyol look to have a potent attack considering Caicedo is there to come off the bench, they will need it tonight against one of the best defences in Spain.
Sevilla have been sensational of late. Winning nine of their last ten and five in a row. With Bacca climbing the scoring charts with eleven in seventeen, Mbia and Deulfeau have started more of late and with more game time the young loanee from Barcelona is starting to look like the impact player that made such a difference at Everton last season. Sevilla have an excellent balance to their team and at the moment they are the hottest side in Spain.
Time to jump on the Sevilla train, as mentioned above they are the best team in Spain form wise and have just crushed teams since the winter break conceding only one goal in their last five. I am jumping on the Sevilla bandwagon tonight. Espanyol do have a good home record and have won four of their last five but I think they will find Sevilla too hot to handle.
