Real Madrid vs Numancia – Copa del Rey: This Wednesday night, Real Madrid hosts Numancia at the Bernabéu
On a match counting towards the 2nd leg of Copa del Rey’s round of 16.
Real Madrid is currently in 4th place of La Liga with 32 points conquered, having a record of 9 victories, 5 draws and 3 losses.
When it comes to goals, the Madrid team has scored 32 goals and has conceded 16, which results on an average of 2.8 goals per match.
This season, and in the league, the team from the capital has only won 5 of the 9 matches they played at home, which is a good indicator of what has been Real Madrid’s season.
The team’s moment of form isn’t good, having lost the derby against Barcelona 3-0 and having tied 2-2 on their last match against Celta de Vigo, at Balaídos.
Numancia is in 4th place of the Spanish 2nd tier, with 36 points conquered, thanks to a record of 10 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses.
Their goal ratio counts with 31 goals scored and 23 goals conceded, which results on an average of 2.6 goals per match.
Numancia’s away record isn’t that strong, with the team only getting half the points they conquered playing in front of their fans. Still, the team’s moment of form isn’t positive, since they have only suffered 1 loss on their last 7 matches.
Real Madrid vs Numancia – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Real Madrid won the 1st leg match in Los Pajaritos and therefore they are with both feet on the next stage.
Zidane should opt for a starting line-up with a lot of changes, similarly to what happened when they hosted Fuenlabrada on the previous round.
Numancia is one of the better teams of La Liga 2, having scored in 22 of the 26 matches they played so far.
On this context, and with a featureless Madrid team, I see Numancia giving Real Madrid’s defence some work and therefore, with these odds for Both teams to score, I see some value on exploring this market.
