Sant Andreu vs Atletico Madrid
Spanish Copa del Rey
Date: Tuesday, 30 October 2018
Kick-Off at 120:30 UK / 21:30 CET
Venue: Camp Municipal Narcis Sala (Barcelona).
Sant Andreu made a huge achievement by reaching the last 32 round of Copa del Rey. They feature the fourth division of the Spanish football and they actually took the most from the easier draw to see off Cornella, Gernika and Calahorra en route to this stage.
Interestingly, the team led by Mikel Azparren did not win a single of the aforementioned games in 90 minutes of play. The Catalan side will thus have another opportunity to enjoy home and away fixtures against La Liga heavyweights. The draw has put them together with Atletico Madrid for the second year in a row at this stage of the competition.
What might represent a problem for the hosts is Atletico’s need for the confidence-boosting victory after an embarrassing 4-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League last week.
Diego Simeone’s men will thus likely take this match in a more serious fashion that they would have normally which is why we’d not be shocked to see a demolishing victory for the Mattressers here.
Sant Andreu vs Atletico Madrid: Head-to-head
Atletico eased past Sant Andreu 6-1 on aggregate in the previous term of Copa del Rey.
The Mattressers sealed the deal in the first leg when they saw off Quadribarrats 0-4 away at Camp Municipal Narcis Sala.
This will only be the third head to head encounter between the two teams.
Sant Andreu vs Atletico Madrid: Prediction
Atletico slipped up in two of last three league matches as well and they will no doubts be highly-motivated to avoid any unpleasant scenarios here.
There is an enormous difference in quality between these two sides and we expect a similar scoreline to the one from the first leg of the last 32 round clash from the previous term of the competition between these two likes (0-4).
We’ll thus take Atletico Madrid to win by three or more goals difference at 2.10 as the main betting pick here.
