Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
After recording three consecutive wins over Vianes, River Ebro, and Pradejon in the previous three league fixtures, SD Logrones will be aiming to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Eibar in the Copa del Rey round 1. The Tercera Division side are brimming with confidence ahead of Tuesday’s football match, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against los Armeros.
A man to watch in the home team will be Imanol Etxeberria, who has netted ten goals in the Tercera Division so far this season. Eibar, on the other hand, did well to hold Athletic Club to a goalless draw in the Basque derby at the weekend, with the team putting an end to their five-match losing run in the Spanish top flight. Nonetheless, los Armeros are not regarded as good travellers, and we do not believe that away win should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Marko Dmitrovic):
A Red Star Belgrade youth prospect, Serbian goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic never got a chance to shine at his boyhood club. The talented shot-stopper was forced to take a longer road to prominence and travelled through Hungary, England and Spain to find his place under the sun. Spells with Ujpest, Charlton Athletic and Alcoron brought nothing but disappointment for the Serbia ‘keeper, who rose to full prominence at Eibar.
Dmitrovic was voted the best player of Eibar for the 2017/18 season after not missing a single league appearance for Los Armeros. Apart from his footballing exploits, Marko Dmitrovic remains remembered for saving Angel Rodriguez Diaz’s life in a game against Getafe.
Dmitrovic was the one to unintentionally knock Angel to the ground after a duel in the box and was also the first one to pull his tongue out when it became apparent that Angel was lying still on the ground. Marko Dmitrovic is Serbia’s second choice goalkeeper who made his debut in 2017. The Eibar custodian was part of Serbia’s World Cup expedition in Russia but did not get a chance in goal with Vladimir Stojkovic being favoured between the sticks.
