Real Zaragoza vs Cadiz
Spanish Copa del Rey
Date: Wednesday, 17 October 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio de la Romareda (Zaragoza).
Both Zaragoza and Cadiz were struggling badly in the last couple of weeks coming into this third round of Copa del Rey tie at Estadio de la Romareda. It is clearly one of the biggest match-ups at this stage of the competition given teams’ long history and the fact they both feature Segunda Division football this season.
Los Manos opened the new league campaign in a decent manner, but they dropped down to 14th place with a run of five consecutive games without a victory in the competition. They lost three and drew two in the process. Can the match against fellow strugglers Cadiz be a turning point for them?
Real Zaragoza vs Cadiz: Head-to-head
- Cadiz were much more successful in the head to head history with Los Manos.
- Submarino won four, drew one and lost one of six matches against Real Zaragoza.
- Cadiz shipped just one goal in last four meetings with Los Manos who lost last two H2H ties with the same 0-2 scoreline.
Real Zaragoza vs Cadiz: Prediction
Cadiz were one of the most pleasant surprises of the previous term of Copa del Rey. They stunned Real Betis 6-5 on aggregate in the last 32 round before losing narrowly two ties against Sevilla in the next round.
However, Alvaro’s men are now nowhere near such form as they sit third from bottom after nine rounds in Segunda Division. They won just one of nine matches and head into this off the back of a streak of three defeats and a single draw in last four league outings.
Zaragoza will thus have a nice opportunity to improve the poor head to head record against Submarino. Los Manos have by no means played poorly at home this season. They lost just one of five games at Estadio de la Romareda. Knowing that Cadiz won just one of nine league games so far in the season, we’ll back Zaragoza to qualify at 1.61 odds. Braver tipsters can try with the clear home win at 2.20.
