Getafe set to suffer more torture at the hands of ruthless Barcelona
The Copa del Rey takes centre stage tonight with La Liga leaders Barcelona in action against out-of-form Getafe, while Villarreal and Real Sociedad contest their third match in a week.
And with this Spanish double-header live on Sky Sports our news team have come up with a 4/1 double to help find some value from these televised cup encounters.
Gerardo Martino’s men ran riot at the Nou Camp with a 4-0 win in last week’s first leg encounter against a Getafe side who are on a run of four straight defeats.
Barcelona on the other hand are eight games unbeaten heading into the clash at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez and while Martino may take the opportunity to rest a handful of stars ahead a trip to Levante at the weekend, the Catalan club should have enough quality for victory
On their last two visits Barca have recorded 5-2 and 4-1 victories against Luis García Plaza’s side and our news team is backing a repeat with the visitors on at 29/20 to win with a -2 handicap.
In their last five encounters with the Azulones this selection has been successful and with Lionel Messi, fresh from his Ballon d’Or snub, set to get the chance to stretch his legs at some point during the match, the Barca -2 handicap can pay dividends again.
Villarreal will be hoping for a repeat of their 5-1 victory on Monday night as they get set to meet Real Sociedad for the third time in a week.
With nothing to separate the two sides from the first leg, this should be an open clash as both teams look to book their place in the quarter-finals.
While Villarreal are rightly favourites for the clash following their impressive victory against the same opponents, backing both teams to score at El Madrigal at odds of 7/10 looks the sensible option.
In five of the past seven meetings between the two sides both El Submarino Amarillo and La Real have found the net and with the two teams gunning for the next round there are sure to be goals again.
