Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams scored 2+ goals in their two prior Copa Del Rey rounds.
  • Just one of the last 13 visiting sides kept Cartagena from scoring at home.
  • Valencia found the net in six of their last seven away games.
  • Five of Valencia boss Pepe Bordalas’ seven H2Hs with Cartagena saw both teams score.

Can Cartagena be stopped?

The hosts come into this match on the back of an amazing away victory at the home of La Liga 2 leaders Almeria. They defied long odds to record that victory, which in turn extended their current unbeaten run to six games, suggesting that this will be no walkover for the visiting top-flight mainstays.

While Cartagena kept back-to-back clean sheets ahead of this game, they have not recorded three straight shutouts since gaining promotion to La Liga 2 and as such, they will likely have a tough time keeping their guests from scoring at least once here.

A welcome distraction for Valencia

After losing last time out, Valencia can turn their attentions from the race for Europe to potential Copa Del Rey glory. They are expected to win here though they look a massive price considering the apparent gulf in class.

This is partly due to the irresistible form of the hosts and Pepe Bordalas’ poor managerial record vs Cartagena (W2, D3, L2). However, they have now won each of their last four away games and scored 12 goals in the process (including ET), suggesting they may well put on a show.

Given the upwards trajectory of both sides, I predict that both sides will score in what could be an entertaining 2-1 victory for the European hopefuls, Valencia.
