If you are struggling to decide on the best bet for Atletico Baleares vs Valencia, check our favourite predictions for this duel:
Valencia to Win
Atletico Baleares are the only team that plays in Primera RFEF still left in Copa del Rey. To get here, they had to eliminate two La Liga teams, so they should be taken seriously.
However, it would be too much for a team from the third rank of Spanish football to achieve another upset, so our prediction is for Valencia to win this game, especially since Valencia is doing well this season.
Over 2.5 Total Goals
All but one games played by Atletico Baleares and Valencia in Copa del Rey this season have gone over 2.5 total goals, so we expect to see the same outcome on Sunday.
Furthermore, Valencia is averaging 3.20 goals per game in La Liga this season, which is the highest average in the league. Meanwhile, Atletico Baleares averaged 2.56 goals per game in Primera RFEF until now.

Team news and predicted lineups for Atletico Baleares vs Valencia
While the guests are clearly the favourites here, this can be a very interesting game after all. So, let's take a closer look at both teams:
As the only team playing in leagues below La Liga 2 that's still standing in Copa del Rey, it's clear that Atletico Baleares has had a very successful run in the Spanish Cup. On that road, they eliminated Getafe and Celta Vigo, two teams that play in the highest rank of Spanish football. Meanwhile, Atletico is fourth in Primera RFEF at the moment and they will be fighting for promotion, as it seems right now.
Atletico has been off since their meeting with Celta Vigo in the cup, so they've had time to rest and heal their injuries. So, we can expect to see a very similar team to the one that faced Celta.
Atletico Baleares predicted lineup:
Ginard – Ferrone, Orfila, Delgado – Canario, Cordero, Petcoff, Vilarrasa – Shashoua – Martinez, Dioni
It's been a good season for Valencia so far, although the team is a bit inconsistent and tend to play well in series and then go on a bad run. The same is happening now since the team lost their last two La Liga games after winning three in a row before that. Overall, the Bats are right in the middle of the standings now, but they are also only a few points away from teams in places that grant spots in European competitions.
Valencia will again be without Soler, Lato, Foulquier, and Gabriel Paulista, who are all injured at the moment. Also, Cheryshev, Costa, and Gomez are doubtful since they tested positive for COVID recently. Finally, Wass will likely be held out since he is linked with a move to Atletico Madrid.
Valencia predicted lineup:
Domenech – Piccini, Diakhaby, Guillamon, Vazquez – Musah, Racic, Serna – Vallejo, Andre, Duro
