Almeria vs Reus Deportiu
Spanish Copa del Rey
Date: Thursday, 18 October 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio de los Juegos Mediterraneos (Almeria).
Almeria barely saved the second tier status last season when they finished lock on points with relegated Cultural Leonesa side. They got off to a strong kick off to the new campaign, though, confirming even the promotional bid with a magnificent display in the 3-0 drubbing of Las Palmas on Saturday evening.
Can Los Rojiblancos bring such form to Cope del Rey on Thursday evening when they host Reus Deportiu in the last game of the third round at Estadio de los Juegos Mediterraneos? The hosts are certainly form favourites given La Avellana Mecanica head into the match winless in last four league games.
Almeria vs Reus Deportiu: Head-to-head
Almeria have the chance to go level on number of wins in H2H stats against Reus Deportiu with success here.
The visitors won three and lost two of five H2H meetings with Los Rojiblancos so far.
Almeria, however, won two of three home outings against La Avellana Mecanica.
None of five head to head affairs saw goals at both ends.
The two teams have already met each other this season as Almeria took a 2-0 victory in the league tie played in late-September at Estadio de los Juegos Mediterraneos.
Almeria vs Reus Deportiu: Prediction
Reus Deportiu took just one point from last three league games, a thread which began with the aforementioned defeat to Los Rojiblancos. It is interesting to mention they were on a three-win streak across competitions on travels beforehand.
Nonetheless, we just have to see the hosts as clear favourites here based on the fact they won three on the trot at home in Segunda Division. Los Rojiblancos notched seven goals conceding just once in the process.
One thus has to recognize the value of the 1.90 odds offered for Almeria to pick up another victory over Reus Deportiu in just three weeks. The alternative pick would be Under 2.5 goals FT at 1.50 given none of five head to head affairs saw three or more goals scored.
