Copa del Rey Preview

It has been an excellent campaign to this point for Real Sociedad, as they sit third in the La Liga standings. Sociedad has been a fine cup team over recent seasons, as they won the Copa del Rey for just the third time in their history back in 2020. Therefore, they could have an excellent chance of making another deep run in the competition this term.

Sociedad’s form couldn’t be much stronger coming into this fixture, as they have picked up four straight wins in La Liga. They have also won their previous five in all competitions. The Spanish side was pushed to the brink in the previous round of the competition, as they could only pick up a 1-0 success against Logrones. The only goal in that game was scored after 33 minutes by Robert Navarro. 

Mallorca enjoyed an excellent run in the Copa del Rey last season, as they reached the quarterfinals before being eliminated by Rayo Vallecano. Meanwhile, their only success in the competition was achieved in the 2002-03 season. However, they have reached the final on two further occasions, but lost in both finals in 1991 and 1998.

They have certainly improved this season, as they look on course to finish in the top half of the La Liga standings. Mallorca needed to keep their calm in the previous round, as they were forced to extra time by Pontevedra, before goals from Abdon Prats and Vedat Muriqi sealed a 2-0 win.

Real Sociedad vs Mallorca Head to Head

This will be the third meeting between the sides in the Copa del Rey since 2012. Both meetings came in the same season, with two legged ties being in operation. Sociedad won their home game 2-0, before losing 6-1 in Mallorca. However, Sociedad has a strong recent record in this fixture, as they have won their last six.

Real Sociedad vs Mallorca Prediction 

This should be an exciting cup tie between two sides that are excelling this term. However, the preference is for Sociedad to get the win that they need to reach the next round. We could see them landing a 2-0 home win.
