Dominator (16 shots to 5) but not rewarded in front of his public (1-2 defeat), Espanyol will have to go for his place in the quarterfinals of the King’s Cup on the field of Levante. Pulses in League (16th), the Granotes only have to lock the game in front of their audience, knowing that a 0-1 defeat will suffice. However, we do not imagine the club of the suburbs of Valencia to validate his ticket for the next round as in a dream, without trembling. Fell at the Barça (3-0) this weekend in the league, Levante can lose everything in front of his audience?
Both teams found the way to the first leg in Catalonia (win 1-2 Granotes).
The bet “both teams score” has been validated in 8 of the last 9 confrontations between the two clubs.
4 of the last 7 games played by the Catalans have seen both teams find the net at least once.
Espanyol have had many opportunities in the first leg (16 shots) and will have a say at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia. Forced to attack without restraint from the kickoff, the Catalans will inevitably discover themselves, leaving some space to the Granotes. The bet “both teams score” is to be attempted.
The last race that we analyze today sees Atromitos and Asteras T., in a match valid for the return of the Greek Cup knockout rounds, which anticipate the group stage. In the first leg, Atromitos got the better with a 1-0 score, thanks to Vasilakakis’s net in the ninth half. Owners of the house currently occupy the fourth position in the league, win consecutively from four rounds and are still in the running for the national title. On the other hand, the guests, who only have to win in order to pass the round, are sixth in the league, they do not lose by six turns but they are definitely detached from the Europa zone of the classification.
Atromitos favored, but we are not convinced to see a one-way race.
In the Portuguese Cup, today there is a valid match for the quarterfinals, with a single race, which sees Moreirense and Porto face each other. The hosts occupy the fifteenth position in the championship in the league and are in full struggle for the permanence in the top flight. The guests, however, command the Primeira Liga with two points ahead of Sporting Lisbon, are unbeaten in all the national events and can boast both the best attack and the best defense. The winner of this match will probably face in the semifinals the Sporting who, in the quarterfinals, meets the Cova de Piedade, opponent within reach.
Despite the many commitments of the Port, many big players will fall on the field, which will probably make the result at the end of the ninety minutes in favor of the guests.
Prediction Today: 2 + Over 1.5

Swept (1-6) by the PSG Sunday in the Coupe de France, the Bretons owe a revenge to their audience. In search of a title since the early 70’s, Rennes simply does not have the right to squander this Cup of the League. Even less after dropping Dijon (1-2) and Marseille (2-2, penalties on goal). The Bretons will have to overcome Toulouse to make a place in the last four. Training TFC really struggling this season in the league (17th) but had the merit of starting 2018 with a success in front of Nice (1-0), as part of the Coupe de France.
