Spain Copa Del Rey
Valencia vs Real Zaragoza
Pick: Valencia-1 Handicap win
ANALYSIS AND MATCH PREVIEW
Valencia host Segunda Division rivals Real Zaragoza for the second leg of their Copa del Rey clash on Thursday in great shape after holding table-toppers Barcelona to a 1-1 draw in front of the home crowd on Sunday. They will be looking to build on the 0-2 win at Estadio de la Romareda in late October and seal the qualification to the next round.
Los Che have earned a nine-match winning streak beforehand and we’ve seen them regularly scoring numbers of goals, on the backs of in-form Zaza and Rodrigo up front. They’ve untangled the first clash narrowly and in the last ten minutes but Marcelino’s men will surely be motivated for a more one-sided contest now to return to the winning ways.
Real Zaragoza have been a tough side in the first match but we have seen a huge drop in their form since, with three losses, two draws and just one win 3-2 over Rayo Vallecano in front of the home crowd – in their last six outings. It’s thus really hard seeing them overturn the advantage at Estadio de Mestalla or leave the ground unbeaten, for that matter.
They’ve bagged just two wins at this ground in 19 head to head games played, with the last one coming back in the 2012 Primera Division clash. However, Los Manos surely seem far from such a form and while Valencia have more on their minds amid a busy schedule, i still think they have what it takes to build on the October success and outclass the rivals once again.
I’m backing another comfortable win for Valencia and going for home win with -1 Alternate handicap.
