Navalcarnero vs Granada
Spain Copa del Rey
Date: Thursday, 28 January 2021
Kick-Off at 18.00 UK
Venue: Estadio Municipal Mariano Gonzalez, Navalcarnero.
Navalcarnero have already claimed the top-flight scalp by beating Eibar 3-1 at home in the previous round of Copa del Rey. They had earlier made another upset against Las Palmas, beating them 1-0 on the home patch. Can they third-division outfit continue the fairytale cup journey and see off yet another elite class side on Thursday when they play host to Granada at Estadio Municipal Mariano Gonzales?
Despite the mentioned Navalcarnero successes, the visitors head into the game as massive favourites. After all, they have a fantastic chance to enter the quarter-final of the competition.
Diego Martinez is expected to field his strongest squad available for the tie. Nazaries have done well in the cup last season, too. They almost made it to the final as Athletic Bilbao eliminated them on an away goal rule (2-2 on aggregate).

Navalcarnero vs Granada Prediction
Navalcarnero have not quite been enjoying their best form in their respective division. They are winless in seven consecutive matches in Segunda B Division (Group 5).
The hosts will come into this tie after conceding three goals in an unpleasant defeat to Las Rozas on the road last weekend.
Luis Ayllon’s troops have thus shipped at least three goals in two of the last five league matches. This will be the music to the ears of Luis Suarez, Darwin Machis, Kenedy, Roberto Soldado, and Jorge Molina. They are all in contention to start Thursday’s fixture.
Granada have a decent firepower on display in their ranks. They should have plenty of room to exploit the holes in Navalcarnero’s back line and we would not be surprised to see a goal fest in this tie.
The Nazaries have, however, leaked way too many goals of late. They shipped five in the last two league outings against Villarreal (a 2-2 draw) and Osasuna (a 3-1 loss). Both Teams To Score is our top betting suggestion at the odds of 2.00.
