Formentera take on the visitors Alaves at “Estadio Municipal” in the clash of the 1/8 stage of the Spanish Copa del Rey. The match will be played on Wednesday, January 3rd.
In the previous round of the Copa del Rey Formentera broke Athletic Bilbao with 1:0 scoreline on the road. It was quite a sensational victory. It should be noted that the club has shown enough strong football in the recent encounters played in front of its supporters, having gained two wins over Peralada 1:0 and Badalona 2:1 alongside with 1:1 draw against Olot within the Segunda Division B.
In their turn, on the 1/16 stage of the Copa del Rey Alaves passed over Getafe with 3:0 scoreline. In general, the side looks a little bit unconvincing in the Spanish elite division, facing with a number of problems. Nevertheless, there are some positive moments in the team’s performance. As for the away battles, “Babazorros” cannot be proud of their latest clashes conducted on the road, having lost to Atletico Madrid 0:1 and Getafe 1:4, but managed to defeat Girona 3:2. At the moment Alaves stay in not the best shape, however, it is still possible to improve the situation while the club slightly begins to find its game.

The upcoming fight is going to be a quite interesting and equal. One shouldn’t pay attention that Formentera perform in the Segunda Division B as if the team was weak, it wouldn’t be able to knock out Athletic Bilbao. Besides, the hosts’ footballers will get a chance to show off throughout Spain and they will definitely fight at each part of the pitch. Meanwhile, Alaves look a little bit unconvincing in the Spanish LaLiga, nevertheless, the Copa del Rey differs greatly from the elite division, meaning that the club has a perfect opportunity to promote further within the Copa and will surely do its best to achieve it. The visitors have an advantage in the forthcoming game as the side plays on a higher level, however, the hosting club will not be smashed for sure.
Prediction for the match: Formentera to win with +1.0 Asian handicap.
