Espanyol vs Tenerife – Copa del Rey : With the goalless draw recorded on the 1st leg…
Both of these teams have hopes of advancing to the next round.
The goalless draw gives a slight advantage to Tenerife who might come into this match on a more expectant position, giving the initiative to Espanyol, because they are the team who is most interested in scoring.
Espanyol is coming off a hard-fought win in La Liga against Getafe, which was a precious result, because it allowed Quique Flores’ team to gain some advantage over the relegation spots.
Tenerife is fighting for promotion to La Liga and that is their main objective,
but that goalless draw gave more importance to this match and now they have real chances of advancing to the next stage, which is something that the club doesn’t want to waste.
Espanyol vs Tenerife – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I think that this will be a very balanced match, where Tenerife will give more initiative to their opponent who has more obligations to reach the advantage because they are playing at home and because they are from a higher division.
But Espanyol, at least on the initial stage, shouldn’t risk too much, because they know that in case they expose themselves too much, they might concede a goal that would make their advancement even harder.
This way, I believe we will have a slower match in the 1st half, with none of the teams risking too much and I believe we can reach half-time with a 0-0 or 1 goal at most.
