Cordoba vs Getafe Prediction & Match Preview

Cordoba vs Getafe
Spanish Copa del Rey
Date: Wednesday, 31 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Nuevo Arcangel (Cordoba).

Getafe suffered the elimination in their very maiden fixtures of past three Copa del Rey editions. Can they bring such a disastrous run to an end on Wednesday evening when they travel to Estadio Nuevo Arcangel to take on Segunda Division outfit Cordoba in the last 32 round of the competition?

Azulones head into the game high on confidence after winning back-to-back La Liga fixtures against Rayo Vallecano and Real Betis. These wins helped them break into the top half of the league standings as thy sit 8th after 10 rounds in Primera. Jorge Molina and Dimitri Foulquier bagged two goals within two minutes just after the hour-mark to inspire a comfortable 2-0 victory over Betis on Sunday.

Cordoba vs Getafe: Head-to-head

Getafe won six and drew one of last seven encounters with Cordoba.

Cordoba vs Getafe: Prediction

Cordoba began the season in a dreadful manner, but they look to have finally found the way to raise their game to the next level of late. Los Califas, who made the change on the bench in August, lost just one of last five matches in all competitions. They still sit at the very foot of Segunda Division ladder with just 8 points from 11 rounds so far.

Nevertheless, we have to mention the efficiency Jose Ramon Sandoval’s men showed in the 1-4 thumping of Elche in the previous round of Copa del Rey. They will be up against a much more serious opposition in the likes of Getafe, though.

Azulones are certainly massive favourites to advance over two legs, but can they finish the job in the first match at Estadio Nuevo Arcangel? Given their recent form in the top flight, we have to try with the 1.90 odds offered for the away win bet here.
