Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
Eibar will be looking to build on a 2-0 win over Atletico Madrid when they take on Badajoz in the Copa del Rey last 32. Los Armeros produced their best performance of the season in the triumph over Diego Simeone’s troops, which is certainly giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the trip to Extremadura. Since Eibar impressed in back-to-back wins over Logrones (5-0) and Cacereno (2-1) in the previous two rounds of the Spanish Cup, away win should be considered.
A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Chile international Fabian Orellana, who is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. Badajoz, on the other hand, are fully focused on securing promotion to the Segunda Division, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the La Liga side this time out.
