Spain- Copa del Rey
Date: Thursday, 1 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 EAT
Venue: Estadio Ramon de Carranza (Cadiz)
A high flying Espanyol will take on the struggling side from second division on a race for Cup glory.
Los Corsarios are having a season to forget in the Segunda Division. They are 19th in the league with 2 wins in 11 matches. They have only scored 8 goals till now conceding 11 in the process.
The team from Andalusia has won both games in CDR in narrow margins against weak sides like Tenerife and Zaragoza.
In their last 6 matches from all competitions they managed to win 2 and also lost 2. Only 2 of those matches had over 2.5 goals in total.
At home they are on a winless streak of 4 games with 1 defeat in it. They started their home season with a win which is the only win in all 5 home matches.
Espanyol are looking better on paper compared to their hosts for Thursday. They are undefeated in 5 straight games with 3 wins included.
Away from home they have played 6 matches and won only once, that too against the bottom side Huesca. They have lost 2 away games both against stronger opponents of the likes of Alaves and Real Madrid. So it is safe to say they have had an average away season.
So the game will be shifting in the visitor’s favor and with the reverse fixture coming up in Barcelona, Espanyol is good to go to the next round.
