Sports Mole looks ahead to the Copa del Rey tie between La Liga outfit Malaga and Eibar of the Segunda B.

Segunda B side Eibar have made quite an impression during this season's Copa del Rey.

They knocked out La Liga side Athletic Bilbao to reach this stage and during the opening leg against Malaga, they claimed a credible 1-1 draw in front of their own supporters.

It could have been even better for the Basque-based outfit had former Newcastle United defender Oguchi Onyewu not found the net in third minute of stoppage time for Manuel Pellegrini's team.

Despite the fact that Malaga remain in the Champions League, Pellegrini is said to be keen to win the trophy this year.

As a result, he has been tipped to name a number of his key players in his starting lineup, including Javier Saviola and Ignacio Camacho.

Eibar will head into the contest second in their division and just point behind leaders Deportivo Alaves. Their leading goalscoer, David Mainz, is expected to lead the line in La Rosaleda.
