Getafe 5/6 to beat Rayo Valladolid in Wednesday’s Copa del Rey showdown
Competition: Copa del Rey
Market: Getafe win
Odds: 5/6 @ Bet 365
Two sides who are looking to book their spot in the quarterfinals of this year’s Copa del Rey, Getafe will welcome Rayo Valladolid to the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, after surprising many with their rise up the La Liga table, Getafe will have their sights set on securing a shock European position this season. In their 18 league games this season, they have won six, drawn seven and lost five, scoring 19 and conceding 15 in return. Remarkably, entering the New Year, Getafe hold the second best defensive record in the top-flight and sit just a single point behind Real Madrid. As for their recent form, coming off the back of a close-fought 2-1 loss to defending champions Barcelona last week, Getafe are unbeaten in their other six outings across all competitions. The hosts have also now scored seven goals in their last two Copa del Rey outings.
As for the visitors, while Getafe might have entered 2019 in some style, the same can not be said for newly promoted Rayo Valladolid. Now sat down in 15th position and with one eye over their shoulder at the relegation zone, the visitors are certainly enduring their most difficult spell of the season. Suffering a 1-0 loss at home to relegation contenders Rayo Vallecano last week, Valladolid have now failed to win any of their last three matches across all competitions. More worrying the former Segunda champions have also failed to record a single clean sheet in their last seven appearances.
