On the first round of the Copa del Rey we have a match where both teams are looking for a positive result to advance to the next stage.
BADALONA: The team plays in the 3rd tier of Spanish football. Last season the team finished in 5th place, and this season they’ve played 2 matches so far, tying one and losing the last one.
On that last match, they lost fair & square against tonight’s opponent, Elche. They got beaten 5-1 away from home.
ELCHE: As for Elche’s team, they are more traditional on the worldwide scenario. They have already played in La Liga a few years ago, but they haven’t had an easy life these past few years.
Last season they played in Segunda División, where they finished in 21st place, which relegated them to Segunda B, the 3rd tier, where they’ve already played 2 matches.
They’ve tied at home in the 1st round and then they won 5-1 against Badalona at home.
Badalona vs Elche Betting Tip and Prediction:
On this first round of the Copa del Rey, both teams are looking to win, in order to advance, but Elche, despite playing away from home, is still favourite.
The team is more well-known than the hosts, and they are looking for a better campaign than they have had in the past few seasons, so Copa del Rey might be an alternative for that.
I believe that, from the manager’s statements, the team will go for the win, even playing away from home. Another important aspect is the last round of their league.
Elche was really superior against Badalona, and they have battered them 5-1.
Regarding my investment, I opted for a bold bet here, but I find value on it for this match, which is Elche to win at half-time and at the end of the match.
I believe the team will go out for the win since the 1st minute, even because of any physical attrition they might feel on the later stages.
