Copa del Rey First Round was not easy for Eldense, as they found themselves behind on the scoreboard very early in the match after conceding a goal in the 3rd minute. For the rest of the game they were rowing and just in additional time they managed to equalize the score.
The game went to overtime and there was a goal for each side, leading to a 2-2 tie that forced penalty kicks. Eldense had luck on their side by scoring all their shots. It’s been a month since then, and Eldense has played six league games, winning half of them.
Probable lineup (4-5-1): Dimitrios Stamatakis; Javier Estacio, Carlos Hernández, Diego González, Álex Martínez; Luis Capó Payeras, Miguel Núñez, Mario Soberón, Fran Carnicer, Albert Ramis Luque; Sergio Ortuño.
Burgos, just like its rival in turn, defined its ticket to this stage of the Copa del Rey in penalty kicks after a 0-0 draw in 120 minutes against Recreativo de Huelva. They had registered four matches without defeat in all competitions, but saw that streak come to an end when they faced Eibar in LaLiga 2, and since then, they are on a negative run of three games without a victory.
On the positive side, the Burgos team drew their last match 1-1 against Huesca, but they have gone 15 days without a favorable result and that could be crucial for this match.
Probable lineup (4-4-2): Dani Barrio; Fran García, Míchel Zabaco, Aitor Córdoba, Jesús Areso; Miguel Muñoz, Raúl Navarro, Saúl Berjón, Juam Hernández; Mourad El Ghezouani, Juan Artola.
Eldense registers two games without losing, and the highlight is that the last game they played ended up in a victory with a score of 4-0. Burgos is one of the best teams in LaLiga 2, but since they have not been winning in recent times, they do not come in as favorites.
Prediction: Eldense win by a score of 1-0.
