Mutilvera vs Villanovense
Spanish Copa del Rey
Date: Wednesday, 17 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:15 UK / 20:15 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal Valle de Aranguren (Mutilva Baja).
Mutilvera took advantage of the easier early draw to reach the third round of Copa del Rey for the first time in history. They were lucky to find the equalizer late in the extra-time of the opening round clash against Segunda B Division side Barakaldo to force a penalty shootout series.
They are now set to take on another opposition from the third tier of the Spanish football in the quest for the last 32 round of the competition. A real buzz is thus expected in and around Estadio Municipal Valle de Aranguren on Wednesday evening when a Tercera Division outfit are to play host to Villanovense.
The visitors are by no means unbeatable given a horrendous start to the new Segunda B Division campaign they’ve had. Julio Cobos’ men sit second from bottom in the third division of Spanish football with three draws and four defeats in seven games so far.

The two teams did not have the opportunity to meet each other in the past.
Mutilvera vs Villanovense: Prediction
Villanovense enjoyed a dream Copa del Rey run back in the 2015/16 campaign when they went all the way to the last 32 round. They even held mighty Barcelona to a goalless draw in the first leg in Villanueva de la Serena back then before losing the rematch at Camp Nou 6-1.
They will have a nice chance to match such success given the easiest draw possible here in the third round. However, we’d be careful putting money on Villanovense here knowing they’ve been on a dreadful run of late.
Julio Cobos’ men shipped five goals in last two losses to Marbella and Talavera. This is why we’d not be surprised to see the hosts on the scoresheet here as well. The BTTS is thus well worth backing at decent-value 1.95 odds. You can alternatively shoot for the Over 2.5 goals FT bet at the odds of 2.10.
