Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
Alcorcon and Zaragoza, the two La Liga 2 sides, go head to head at Estadio Municipal de Santo Domingo in the Copa del Rey last 64. Alcorcon aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Rayo Vallecano, and the fact that they recorded three wins in the previous four home games in Segunda Division is surely giving fans a reason for optimism. Talented attacker Barbero, who scored as a substitute in the 2-1 defeat to Rayo, is pushing for a start.
Los Blanquillos, on the other hand, are having a season to forget, with the team sitting in the penultimate position in the La Liga 2 standings after 20 rounds. Zaragoza are not regarded as good travellers, and seeing that Alcorcon have been producing fine displays on home soil of late, we believe that punters can find value in betting on Anquela’s troops.
Highlighted Player (Richard Boateng):
Born in Accra, Ghana on July 10, 1992, Richard Boateng is a midfielder who plays for Alcorcon in Segunda Division. Boateng is a product of Liberty Babies football academy, with the Ghanaian starting his senior career at Liberty Professionals. In 2010 he moved to Spain, signing a deal with Granada.
During his spell with the Andalusian outfit, he mainly played for Granada B, but he spent a couple of years at loan at Cadiz B and San Roque as well. Richard Boateng made only one appearance for the Granada senior team in the league.
The Ghana international played for the likes of Aris Limassol, Extremadura, Melilla, and Oviedo as well before joining Alcorcon in 2019. His primary position is central midfielder, but he is used as an attacking midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right, and his contract with Alcorcon should expire in June 2021.
Highlighted Team (Zaragoza):
Based in the autonomous community of Aragon, Zaragoza is a Spanish football club that plays in Segunda Division. The club was founded on March 18, 1932 and it plays their home matches at the legendary La Romareda stadium.
The venue opened on September 8, 1957 has the capacity of 33,608 people. Los Blanquillos wear white shirts and blue shorts when playing on home soil, while yellow is the dominant colour of their away kit. Zaragoza did well to win the la liga trophy in the 1977/78 season, with the team finishing the campaign four points clear of second-place Recreativo de Huelva.
Speaking of the club’s European success, Zaragoza clinched the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in the 1994/95 season as they defeated 2-1 in the title game. Fabio Coentrao, Pablo Aimar, Roberto Ayala, Diego Milito, Gabriel Milito, Cafu, and David Villa are the most notable footballers who played for the club in the past. Huesca are considered the club’s main rivals.
