Girona vs Villarreal
Spain – Copa del Rey
Date: Tuesday, 26 January 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Montilivi (Girona).
A series of three draws and two consecutive wins contribute to the unbeaten run of Girona across all major contests in their overall schedule. The 1-0 win at home against Espanyol in La Liga 2 was their last game in their form. They came into the quarter-final by defeating Cadiz with a 2-0 scoreline at home.
The top tier team is on a decent run in their overall form. The away team has been unbeaten for the past six clashes with just two draws in it. Both those draws came in the La Liga fixtures, following a goalless draw on the road with Huesca last time out. They defeated Tenerife with a 0-1 scoreline to confirm the quarter-final berth in the Copa del Rey this season.

Girona vs Villarreal Prediction
In their past two meetings, the away team has been the winner. This includes an earlier CDR game, which was their last h2h clash in their history. There is no doubt that the match is sizing to be an away win in full-time as the top tier team locks horns with an LL2 contingent in the tournament.
Not only Villarreal holds an advantage in the league supremacy, but also in their squad strength and recent form across all major competitions. Girona enjoys the ground advantage in the middle, but it is not likely to reflect against a stronger side like the traveling squad.
We can count on the teams to pull together a couple of goals in ninety minutes. The tip for over 1.5 goals will come in handy from the goals area in the clash. Besides, the away win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters to yield decent returns in the encounter.
