Mirandes hosts Villarreal in a 1/4-finals game from the Spanish Copa del Rey
Mirandes hosts Villarreal in a 1/4-finals game from the Spanish Copa del Rey. Because of the competitions’ new format, this tie is going to be decided in just one game. This makes the Copa del Rey much more interesting than before. Let’s take a look at this match in our value football tips tonight.
Mirandes are the only non-La Liga team, which is still in the competition. The club is currently playing in the second tier of Spanish football – the Segunda Division. Managed by Andoni Iraola, Mirandes reached this phase of the competition after eliminating La Liga teams like Celta Vigo and Sevilla. Their performance so far is really impressive.
In the last days of January Mirandes hosted Sevilla at the Estadio Municipal de Anduva and crushed the big favourite in this game with 3-1 – a result which we hardly expected. Matheus Barrozo scored twice in Tomas Vaclik’s net, while Alvaro Rey scored one more for Mirandes.
This result must be a red lamp for Villarreal before the game on Wednesday. They must be aware that what happened to Sevilla can be happen to them as well.
Villarreal played away from home in the previous round, too. The Yellow Submarine visited Rayo Vallecano at the Vallecas and enjoyed a 2-0 win. They scored both of their goals in the last few minutes of the match when Fernando Nino and Santi Cazorla paved the team’s way to the 1/4-finals.
Villarreal made a strong addition to their team in January. The Spanish international Paco Alcacer joined the Yellow Submarine from Borussia Dortmund. Paco even scored his first goal for the club – this happened during the 3-1 win over Osasuna on Sunday. The big hero of the game was Santi Cazorla, though, who scored a goal and also made an assist.
That’s our value football tips tonight for the Copa del Rey clash between Mirandes and Villarreal. Can Mirandes do another sensation in the competition? We will see.
