Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
Estadio Municipal de Montilivi will host Saturday’s Copa del Rey game between Girona and Cadiz. The Catalans defeated Lugo thanks to Santiago Bueno’s late extra-time goal, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Cadiz. Keep in mind, though, that Girona are undefeated in the previous five home games in all competitions. Uruguay international Stuani remains in the recovery room, with Sylla likely to lead the line for the hosts.
The Yellow Submarine, on the other hand, aim to build on a La Liga win over Alaves. Cadiz regained a much-needed confidence at the weekend, and seeing that Girona boss Francisco is likely to mix the squad, we are tempted to put our money on the visiting team. In their last meeting in a competitive match Girona defeated Cadiz 2-1, meaning that the visitors are hungry for revenge.
