Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
Coliseum Alfonso Perez will host Tuesday’s football game between Getafe and Valencia. Los Azulones set up a meeting with los Che in the Copa del Rey quarter-finals by beating Real Valladolid in the two-legged tie, but they do not want to stop now. Getafe have been impressive in all competitions this season and seeing that Valencia are not regarded as good travelers, we are tempted to put our money on the capital club. Marcelino’s men were beaten by Sporting Gijon in their last away game in the Copa del Rey, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. A man to watch in the home team will be experienced attacker Angel, who is likely to lead the line for Jose Bordalas’ troops. Speaking of the away team, Getafe defenders should have Rodrigo, who scored the winner against Celta Vigo at the weekend, at bay.
Highlighted Player (Djené):
A central defender who can equally be deployed as a right-back, Djene Dakonam has emerged as one of the most influential Getafe players in the 2017/18 season. His road to prominence was a long one, however, and Djene had to bide his time in order to be recognized for quality he undoubtedly possesses. Dapaong-born Togolese international, Djene Dakonam made his first football steps as a youth member of Etoile Filante. Spells in Benin and Cameroon with Tonnerre d’Abomey and Coton Sport, respectively, saw Djene Dakonam grab attention of Alcoron, who moved in to bring him to Spain in 2014. During two years in Spain Djene Dakonam made 59 league appearances before moving to Sint-Truidense. It was in Belgium that Djene Dakonam proved his defensive versatility and Getafe came calling the very next year, in 2017. Djene proved to be an instant hit with the Azulones and is hoping a move to one of Europe’s biggest clubs will not be too far away for him. The likes of Arsenal and Tottenham have been sniffing around him during the summer transfer window in 2018 but were ultimately scared off by his £31 million release clause.
