Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
Villarreal will be looking to bounce back from a shocking 2-1 loss to Espanyol when they face Girona at Estadi Municipal de Montilivi in the last 32 of the Copa del Rey. The Yellow Submarine failed to grab something from the game against the ten-man Periquitos, but they are surely capable of beating the Segunda Division side in the Spanish Cup.
A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Carlos Bacca, who scored a hat-trick in the 5-0 win over Comillas in Villarreal’s Copa del Rey opener. Girona, on the other hand, are eyeing a place in the Segunda Division play-offs. The Catalans are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but away win should be considered as the visitors want this win more than the hosts. In their last meeting at Estadi Municipal de Montilivi Villarreal defeated Girona 1-0.
