Cadiz have beaten Los Che only once in history

Valencia host Cadiz at the Mestalla in the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey on Wednesday, hoping to reach the last-four for the first time since lifting the trophy in 2019.

Los Che overcame third-tier side Atletico Baleares in the last round thanks to Marcos Andre's goal in the opening minute of the game.

Cadiz, meanwhile, have reached the last-eight for the first time since the 2005-06 season after beating Sporting Gijon 4-2 on penalties in the round of 16.

The Yellow Submarine are hoping to put their La Liga troubles behind them by advancing further into the competition, with the side battling relegation in 18th place on the league table.


Valencia vs Cadiz Head-To-Head

The Bats have won three of their last seven clashes with Cadiz, losing just once.

However, their last encounter, coming in October last year, ended in a goalless stalemate.

Valencia vs Cadiz Prediction

Cadiz have reached the furthest in the competition since 2006 but they've frankly had an easy run so far against sides residing in lower divisions.

The Bats are a totally different kettle of fish, and have an envious attacking arsenal that can take them apart. We expect Valencia to secure a narrow victory.

Prediction: Valencia 2-1 Cadiz
