Round 128 match of Copa del Rey between two sides from Segunda.
Alcorcon take on the visitors Getafe in the round of 128 match of Copa del Rey. The match will be played at Estadio Municipal de Santo Domingo in Alcorcon on Thursday, September 8th.
Alcorcon is quite mediocre La Liga 2 side who never played in Spanish Primera and all the efforts to earn promotion turned out to be failures. The team had finished seventh last season with the same number of points as Osasuna, who had better goal difference and qualified for promotional playoffs. The start of new season isn’t successful for the team as they’ve gained only two points in three matches after draws with Huesca, 0-0, Numancia, 1-1, and 0-2 loss to Levante.
Getafe got relegated to Segunda after last season and show quite average results in the beginning of the season in second Spanish division. Today’s visitors drew all three their matches, sharing points with Mirandes, and Reus Deportiu, both 1-1, and with Numancia, 0-0. The team need some time to readjust to new league.
Alcorcon and Getafe haven’t faced one another for a long while. The price of mistake in cup matches is high and we shouldn’t expect to see attacking football from the opponents. Moreover^ neither of the teams managed to combine over 2.5 goals in their league matches so far this season.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals.
