Atletico Madrid 4/5 to beat Girona in Wednesday’s Copa del Rey tie
Competition: Copa del Rey
Market: Atletico Madrid win
Odds: 4/5 @ Bet 365
Looking to book their spot in the quarterfinals of this year’s Copa del Rey, Atletico Madrid will face off against fellow La Liga side Girona on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Girona may have started the new La Liga season brightly, the White and Red’s have started the New Year in rather sluggish fashion. In their 18 league matches this season, they have managed to record just five wins, eight draws and five defeats, scoring 20 and conceding 22 in return. Girona’s points tally of 23 also sees them hold just a one-point buffer from slipping all the way down to 14th in the table. As for their recent form, while the hosts may have managed to just scrap past Alaves in the last round of the Copa del Rey, they have recorded just one win in their last 10 outings in the competition and have also now failed to win any of their last four matches entering 2019.
As for the visitors, along with booking their spot in the knockout stage of this year’s Champions League, Atletico Madrid are enjoying yet another bright start to the new La Liga campaign. Losing just one of their 18 league games this season, the former Champions now sit second in the table and just five points adrift of Barcelona. As for their recent run of form, Atletico are unbeaten in their last 14 matches across all competitions and have constantly impressed in the Copa del Rey. The European powerhouses have won seven of their last nine matches in the tournament.
