Getafe vs Cordoba
Spanish Copa del Rey
Date: Tuesday, 4 December 2018
Kick-Off at 18:30 UK / 19:30 CET
Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Perez (Getafe).
Getafe are massive favourites to advance to the last 16 round of Copa del Rey with a 1-2 victory from the first leg at Estadio Nuevo Arcangel in their pocket. They are only to confirm it on Tuesday evening when the Segunda Division strugglers come to visit Coliseum Alfonso Perez looking a miracle.
The visitors indeed need a miracle to progress from this tie given their horrendous form at the start of the new season. Los Califas sit second from bottom in the Segunda Division ladder after losing three on the bounce in the second tier of the Spanish football. They have by far the weakest defensive record in their respective division.
The horrendous kick off to the new season provoked the managerial change as Curro Torres took over Jose Ramon Sandoval on the bench after a 1-3 home defeat to Cadiz in mid-November. Nevertheless, the new head coach will obviously need some time to be able to turn a corner for Los Califas who were defeated 2-1 by bottom-half Lugo in his debut.
Getafe vs Cordoba: Head-to-head
The head to head history also suggests a one-way street here.
Azulones were much more successful win 8 wins to Cordoba’s 3 in 15 meetings so far.
Los Califas got off to a flying start in the first leg played in late-October when Bruno Gonzalez’s own goal pushed them in charge. However, Jaime Mata secured a comeback win for the top flight outfit with a goal at the end of the each half.
Getafe vs Cordoba: Prediction
Cordoba allowed as many as eight goals in last three league outings. They have a dreadful record in the road in this term of Segunda Division (0W, 1D and 6L, 4-18 goal difference). This match will provide a fantastic opportunity for Getafe to boost up the confidence after a streak of three consecutive Primera matches without a victory.
We expect the hosts to dominate form the very first minute and claim a comprehensive victory in front of the home crowd on Tuesday evening.
