Goals galore for Ponferradina

When Ponferradina play, be it in the Copa Del Rey or Segunda Division, you expect goals. Their 22 league matches this season have contained 48 of them, with just one 0-0 and Bolo’s side failing to score just three times.

Both teams have scored in their last six home fixtures, including an extra-time 2-1 win over Ibiza in the last round of the Copa Del Rey, while when taking all venues into account, both teams have scored in 13 of their last 18 games.

The question is over whether they can continue that form from the second tier in a clash against a La Liga outfit, but Espanyol’s defence is hardly watertight, so they are fancied to score.

Espanyol out to avoid an upset

Espanyol’s Copa Del Rey record is not good. They have been knocked out at this stage of the competition in the last two seasons, as well as in 2016/17 when they suffered a shock defeat to Segunda side Alcorcon.

They are having a strong season in La Liga though, winning three of their last four, and they are scoring plenty, netting in 12 of their last 14 outings.

Equally, though, they conceding too many. Vicente Moreno’s side have not kept a clean sheet in seven, with both teams scoring in six of their last seven away fixtures.

I expect both teams to score in this game too, given neither side is particularly strong in defence. However, Espanyol should avoid an upset, so I am predicting they will win 2-1.
