Real Sociedad hosts Mirandes in a first game from the 1/2-finals of the Spanish Copa del Rey. In these football tips tonight we will discuss this match with you, let’s go.

Real Sociedad are getting closer to their first apperance at the Copa del Rey final since 1988. The Basques are making a strong performance in the competition this season with their most impressive result being the win against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu in the previous round. La Real became the first team to score four goals against Real Madrid with Zinedine Zidane at the helm.

Everything was almost perfect for Real Sociedad at the Bernabeu this night. Imanol Alguacil’s boys had a 4-1 advantage in a certain point of the game, which was incredible. The Swedish striker Alexander Isak scored twice in Alphons Areola’s net, while Martin Odegaard and Mikel Merino also scored. In the last minutes of the game the Basques conceded two goals, but their advantage was big enough to secure them a place in the next phase.

Now against them Real Sociedad will have an interesting challenge in the face of Mirandes.

Mirandes are the biggest surprise in the Copa del Rey this season. This small club is playing in the Segunda Division, but it didn’t stop them from eliminating La Liga teams like Celta, Sevilla and Villarreal from the Copa. Mirandes are living the dream right now, but they still have two steps to make in order to reach their first final in history.

Currently being managed by former Athletic Bilbao player Andoni Iraola, Mirandes are the underdog in this tie against Real Sociedad. But for them it was the same against Sevilla and Villarreal, too, so be careful with them.

That’s our football tips tonight for the Copa del Rey first 1/2-final game between Real Sociedad and Mirandes on Thursday night. Good luck!
