Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
Getafe will be looking to make amends for a 3-0 loss to Real Madrid when they take on Badalona at Estadi Municipal de Badalona in the Copa del Rey round 2. Los Azulones kicked off their Spanish Cup campaign with a 2-1 win over El Palmar, but they do not want to stop now. The capital club aim to go all the way in the Copa del Rey this season, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against the Segunda B side.
Badalona’s main goal is to secure the Segunda B survival, which is yet another reason why away win should be considered. Even though Getafe boss Jose Bordalas is likely to mix the squad against Badalona, we are tempted to back the La Liga side to yet another win in the Spanish Cup. You should know that the two teams meet for the first time in a competitive match.

The pacey full back made 37 appearances for the club in the 2008/2009 season and at the end of the campaign he signed a deal with Serie A side Udinese. However, given the great collaboration between Udinese and Granada, he was immediately sent on loan to the Estadio Nuevo los Carmenes outfit.
