Girona: Want to go back to LaLiga ( Recent Form: L L D W L )

Until recently, Girona seemed to be growing rapidly in a stable LaLiga club, but a dramatic second half of the season threw a spanner in the works last year. Halfway through the season the Catalans were still in the left-hand row and were even allowed to dream of European football, but the red and white ended up under the relegation line. Also in the Segunda Division, with seventh place, it does not really go well, although the team is still fully in the race for a return to the highest level. Girona is partly owned by the wealthy City Group, the same owner as Manchester City, among others. This is one of the reasons why the club still has excellent players like Johan Mojica, Pablo Maffeo and Christian Stuani - all of whom are easy to join in LaLiga. The upcoming cup match against Villarreal therefore promises to be very interesting, although trainer Pep Lluis has already told Marti that the competition has priority. "But that does not mean that we will throw it in the Copa del Rey," the coach said. "If our supporters are behind us, we can make it a memorable cup evening together."

 

Villarreal: The Copa del Rey as a lifebuoy ( Recent Form: W W W D L )

With a provisional ninth place in La Liga, Villarreal threatens to compete alongside European football, so the Copa del Rey could be a much-needed lifebuoy for the yellow shirts. Trainer Javi Calleja cannot afford to let the Spanish cup tournament run, though in the previous rounds his team against third-class players Cornella and Orihuela needed penalties and an extension to keep her cup aspirations alive. So it is high time the coach shook his players awake. Villarreal is of course a favorite on Wednesday evening, but has major offensive problems. Karl Toko Ekambi was recently sold to Olympique Lyon, and grandson thief Gerard Moreno is in the rag basket. The 33-year-old Colombian Carlos Bacca is therefore the only pure center striker that is still available, but the former striker of AC Milan, Seville and Club Brugge, for example, has already been well past his heyday. The preparation is not going smoothly either, because due to inclement weather, Villarreal has decided to travel by train to Girona instead of the plane.

 

THE BETTING VERDICT:

After all, Villarreal is obliged to its position to reach the last sixteen of the Copa del Rey, but in the previous two cup rounds it was not exactly flawless. Also against Girona, which managed to win four of its last five home games, the yellow shirts could have a hard time. So I will bet on an a draw.

 

Girona - Villarreal       

Pick: Girona 0.25
