Sevilla haven’t lifted the Copa del Rey since 2010, losing in the 2016 and 2018 finals subsequently, so will they remain on track go all the way in 2023?
Los Nervionenses edged-out sixth-tier Velarde CF in round one, with Tanguy Nianzou and then Rafa Mir the goal-scorers.
Generally though, it’s been a catastrophic season so far for los Hispalenses, who’ve been knocked out the Champions League, and sit in La Liga’s relegation zone.
Jorge Sampaoli has won just three of 11 matches since being reappointed in October, so the last thing he needs is a shock Copa del Rey exit.
Hosts Juventud Torremolinos ply their trade in Segunda Federación, which forms part of Spain’s fourth-tier.
Last month, they played their first-ever Copa match, amazingly ousting second-tier Huesca on penalties after a 2-2 draw.
So, they’ll believe another upset is possible at Estadio Municipal El Pozuelo, but will Sevilla quality see them advance?
