Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
Getafe will be looking to defend their slim lead in a Copa del Rey tie against Real Valladolid when the two teams face each other at Estadio Municipal Jose Zorilla on Tuesday evening. Los Azulones managed to break the deadlock in the first leg and we predict that they are going to adopt a defence-minded approach in Tuesday’s football match. Real Valladolid, on the other hand, have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at the capital club, meaning that an entertaining game is on the cards. Anyhow, seeing that Getafe are enjoying a very successful season, we predict that they are going to book their place in the Copa del Rey quarter-finals. Real Valladolid played out a 1-1 draw with Valencia at Estadio de Mestalla in their last league match and you should bear in mind that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of their last four games in all competitions.
