Girona vs Alaves
Spanish Copa del Rey
Date: Wednesday, 5 December 2018
Kick-Off at 18:30 UK / 19:30 CET
Venue: Estadi Municipal de Montilivi (Girona).
Both Girona and Alaves have been enjoying decent campaigns so far in the season in La Liga. There are three points separating the two teams who are both inside the top seven in the league ladder coming into this Copa del Rey tie on Wednesday night at Estadi Municipal de Montilivi.
The first leg produced a real thriller in late-October when teams played a 2-2 draw at Estadio de Mendizorozza. Alcala pushed Blanquivermell in front 18 minutes into the game. Ruben Sobrino brought Alaves back on level terms after the hour mark, while Martin turned it completely around bagging an 88th-minute goal for Babazorros. Just when it seemed the hosts would clinch the victory and gain advantage ahead of the rematch, substitute Eric Montes found the last-gasp leveller for Girona.
Girona vs Alaves: Head-to-head
Blanuqivermell lead the head to head tie by a single win coming into their 13th clash with Alaves.
Girona won three, drew one and lost two of six home games against Babazorros.
Each of last three head to head affairs saw both teams on the scoreline as well as at least three goals scored.
Girona vs Alaves: Prediction
Eusebio Sacristian’s troops head into this unbeaten in last seven matches across competitions. We can thus say Alaves have an uphill battle to fight in order to advance to the last 16 round knowing they need a victory or a draw with at least six goals to progress.
Girona produced two exceptionally strong performances in last two league rounds. They eased past Espanyol 1-3 on the road in the small Catalan derby before holding the likes of Atletico Madrid to a 1-1 draw on Sunday. Los Colchoneros were even lucky to have saved a point from Estadi Municipal de Montilivi if we know they found the equalizer just eight minutes from time.
Alaves won just one of past five matches in all competitions and they are certainly form underdogs here.
