Real Madrid vs Fuenlabrada
Copa del Rey
Date: 28th November 2017
Kick off at 20:30 UK / 21:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Santiago Bernabeu (Madrid).
Fuenlabrada faced Real Madrid B in the league clash last weekend when the two likes shared spoils in a goalless draw at Estadio Fernando Torres.
Segunda B leaders are about to tackle Real’s first team just three days later when they travel to Estadio Santiago Bernabeu for the second leg of their Copa del Rey tie.
Los Blancos expectedly did not have too many troubles easing past the third division outfit 0-2 on the road in the first match and they will be massive favourites to claim another win at home this Tuesday.
Nonetheless, it has been all but a successful campaign for Zinedine Zidane and his men in this season in general since Madrid trail eight points behind Barcelona at the top of the La Liga standings at the moment.
The reigning Primera champions revealed plenty of holes at the back last weekend when they barely went past the relegation-threatened Malaga in a five-goal thriller in the capital (3-2).
The manager Antonio Calderon can be satisfied with his team’s run in this term of Segunda B Division as Fuenlabrada are genuine candidates for the promotion into the second tier.
They are five points clear at the top of the standings in spite of the home slip up in the mentioned goalless draw with Real Madrid B.
Real Madrid vs Fuenlabrada: Head to head
The match played a month ago in Fuenlabrada was the first ever meeting between the two sides.
Even though Zidane used a mixed lineup, Real managed an easy win by two goals thanks to successfully converted penalties by Marco Asensio and Lucas Vazquez.
Real Madrid vs Fuenlabrada: Prediction
Zidane will likely rest his key men once again in Copa del Rey which should leave space for the likes of Borja Mayoral, Lucas Vazquez and Marco Asensio to prove their quality and shine on Tuesday.
The hosts are still massive favourites and anything but a comprehensive win for them would represent a surprise.
