Diocesano arrives at this stage of the Copa del Rey after beating Real Zaragoza by a score of 1-0 on November 13. It was a surprise to everyone, but they earned their place thanks to Sales Keen’s 29th minute strike.
This victory against a Second Division team gives them hope for what awaits them on this second round. However, this is a team that is not going through its best moment, as it has not been able to win in precisely one month, and comes to this match with four matches without a win, with one draw and three defeats in that period. However, something to be worried about is that those losses have come consecutively, and the team has failed to score in any of those matches.
Probable lineup (4-3-3): Miguel Ángel Cordero; Javier Varona, José Manuel Armenta, Rubén del Valle, Dani Sales; Javi González, Javier Sahuquillo, Juan Ramón Pliego; Juan Chavalés, Assane Ndiaye, Pablo Guerrero.
The Spanish First Division stopped during the World Cup, but Getafe remained active and played some friendly matches, and earned its ticket to this stage after beating San Roque de Lepe 3-2 in extra time on November 13.
They lost to Real Valladolid and Guadalajara in their friendly matches, being these the last two matches they played, so apparently they are not in their best moment for this commitment since they have only two victories in the last 10 matches played in all competitions between October and December.
Probable lineup (4-4-2): David Soria; Djené Dakoman, Fabrizio Angileri, Luis Milla, Domingos Duarte; Jaime Mata, Cristian Portugués, Carles Aleñá, Omar Alderete; Munir El Haddadi, Borja Mayoral.
A third division club and a first division club have many differences between them, and for obvious reasons the scales are tipped on the side of Getafe, which is in the highest category of Spanish soccer for a reason. However, it is not expected to be a match with plenty of goals.
Prediction: Getafe wins by a score of 2-0.
