Girona vs Cadiz
Spanish Copa del Rey
Date: Saturday, 16 January 2021
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: Estadi Municipal de Montilivi, Girona.
Girona will play host to Cadiz in a low-profile last 32 round of the Copa del Rey clash on Saturday afternoon at Estadi Municipal de Montilivi.
The bookmakers don’t see a genuine favourite here, but we could argue there is value in backing the away win on the occasion.
Cadiz have only earned the promotion for the elite tier football last season, but they have well confounded the expectations and seem ready to stay in the elite for many years to come.
The head coach Alvaro is doing a phenomenal job as his men sit sky-high 9th in the Primera Division standings after 18 rounds. Their opponents are 8th in the Segunda Division table and will have to push harder in an attempt to secure top-class football next year.
Girona vs Cadiz Head-to-head
It is tough to separate the two sides by the head to head record, too. Cadiz have been slightly more successful historically with three wins and two losses in six meetings with Blanquivermell.
Each of the teams snatched a three-pointer in front of the home crowd when Girona and Elche played each other in the previous term of Segunda Division.
None of the last five head to head meetings saw four or more goals scored. It is also significant to mention that Girona won two of three home clashes against El Submarino Amarillo.
Girona vs Cadiz Prediction
Girona have one of the best defensive records in the Segunda Division. They are particularly tough to break down on the home patch where they shipped no more than one goal in the last five games.
None of the last eight outings Girona played at Estadi Municipal de Montilivi has produced three or more goals. Knowing that Cadiz scored just 15 goals in 18 La Liga outings so far in the season, we could easily imagine the continuation of Girona’s fine defensive shape here.
Alvaro’s troops notched no more than two goals in the last five away matches in the league. It is thus the solid defensive line that keeps them in the top half of the standings.
Under 2.5 goals FT pick looks like a banker at 1.50 odds based on everything written above. When it comes to the match winner, we will go for the draw at 3.00.
