Tip Reasoning

  • Seven of Villarreal’s last nine games have included three or more goals
  • Gijon have lost their last four Copa del Rey clashes with La Liga sides
  • Three of those four games have featured three or more goals

Villarreal in a roll

Villarreal have reached the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey in the last two seasons, and they should have what it takes to take another step towards the last eight in this clash against Segunda opposition.

Unai Emery’s side have won six games in a row, including three away from home against Atalanta in the Europa League, Real Sociedad in La Liga and Sanluqueno in the last round of the cup.

Each of those games have featured three or more goals, with Villarreal’s last two Copa del Rey games seeing them record 7-1 and 8-0 victories against lower league opposition.

Gijon up against it

Sporting Gijon sit in the bottom half of the Spanish Segunda and have registered just two victories in their last fourteen matches, one of which was in the Copa del Rey.

Twice runners up in the competition, they have struggled in recent years, failing to get to or past this stage in four of the last eight seasons, suffering four defeats to La Liga opposition.

They have only kept three clean sheets in their last 22 matches, and in just one of their last 11 at home.

I suspect this will be a real struggle for the minnows and predict that Villarreal will win with three or more goals in the game, selecting 3-1 to Villarreal as a correct score prediction.
