Real Madrid vs Melilla Prediction & Match Preview

Real Madrid vs Melilla
Spanish Copa del Rey
Date: Thursday, 6 December 2018
Kick-Off at 15:15 UK / 16:15 CET
Venue: Estadio Santiago Bernabeu (Madrid).

Real Madrid took Melilla seriously in the first leg of their last 32 round tie and a 0-4 victory at Estadio Alvarez Claro came as a consequence of such approach. We can say Los Blancos closed the tie ahead of the reverse fixture on Thursday afternoon at Santiago Bernabeu. Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio, Alvaro Odriozola and Cristo Gonzalez were on the scoreline in what was actually Santiago Solari’s debut on Madrid’s bench.

The new permanent Real Madrid manager is expect to mix up his cards and make a host of rotations in this rematch given the team has already practically secured the R16 qualification. Real have a congested schedule with Champions League and La Liga affairs and there is just no reason for Solari to use his best players here against the third-division side.

Real Madrid vs Melilla: Head-to-head

The match played in late-October was the first ever head to head contest between the two teams.

Solari started with a strong squad which featured the likes of Sergio Ramos, Marco Asensio, Dani Ceballos, Lucas Vazquez and Karim Benzema.

Real Madrid vs Melilla: Prediction

Melilla are cruising their way to the promotion into Segunda Division football next year. They are five points clear at the top of the Group 4 standings with 11 wins, 3 draws and just 1 loss in 15 games so far. Luis Carrion’s men are on a fantastic run of five consecutive wins ever since the aforementioned defeat to Real Madrid. They shipped only one goal along the way.

The Segunda B Division Group 4 leaders could offer a much stronger resistance at Santiago Bernabeu. They will no doubts be much more motivated to fix the poor impression from the first game. Madrid have no reason to push hard and we will back Melilla not to lose by three or more goals difference at the odds of 2.30 as the main betting option.
