Sant Andreu vs Calahorra
Spanish Copa del Rey
Date: Wednesday, 17 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Camp Municipal Narcis Sala (Barcelona).
Calahorra were stopped at this stage of Copa del Rey last term when they fell 1-3 at home to Fuenlabrada. They have a nice chance to take advantage of the easier draw make it a deeper run and go all the way to the last 32 round this time around when they take on Tercera Division outfit Sant Andreu.
The form won’t be Calahorra’s ally here as they lost three on the bounce in their division. Rojillos thus ruined a promising kick off to the new Segunda B campaign and they fell to seventh place as a consequence. Lack of meticulousness at the back was the main issue for the head coach Miguel Sola recently. His team shipped as many as five goals in last two defeats to Mirandes and Arenas de Getxo. Can they regain the much-needed confidence by keeping things quiet at the back on Wednesday evening against Sant Andreu?

Sant Andreu vs Calahorra: Prediction
Sant Andreu’s journey has been completely opposite to the one of Calahorra’s so far in the season. The hosts got off to a slower start in the fourth class of Spanish football, but they look to have gained the momentum being undefeated in last four matches in the competition.
They tightened up tings at the back conceding just one goal in last three league affairs. Can they maintain such form when coming face to face with a higher division opposition?
Quadribarrats enjoyed a thrilling Copa del Rey run last year when they reached the last 32 round. They had the chance to play Atletico Madrid in home and away fixtures back then. Predictably enough, they lost both ties (1-6 on aggregate).
Based on everything written above, we don’t expect a walk-through for the visitors even though they play in the higher division. The draw is a perfect value bet at 3.00 odds, while more conservative punters can try with the draw at the half time at 1.95.
