Girona vs Atletico Madrid

Estadi Montilivi will be the host for Atletico Madrid as they go up against Girona in the first leg of  Round 16 in the Copa del Rey. Girona find themselves up in ninth place in La Liga after 18 matches and head into this fixture in a run of bad form which has seen them go five games without a win in the league. As expected the hosts are heavy underdogs for this fixture and can be backed with Bet365 for a price of 17/4. Diego Simeone will be planning on securing a positive result from this fixture to give them the upper hand for the second leg. Madrid find themselves up in second place after their allotted games and sit just five points behind Barcelona. Sevilla held them to a 1-1 draw in their previous fixture, but they still remain clear favourites with odds of 5/6 with SkyBet.

Getafe vs Real Valladolid

José Bordalás will be aiming to book his Getafe outfit a spot in the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey when they take on a struggling Real Valladolid side. Getafe sit up in seventh place and look in good shape to secure a win in this upcoming fixture with them suffering just one loss from their last six fixtures, which come most recently against Barcelona. Their opponents, Valladolid, have not shared the same success this season and after 18 games sit down in 15th with just 21 points. Their last win came three games ago against Real Sociedad and since then they have lost two and drawn one. The hosts arrive as favourites with odds of 7/8 to win with Betway, while their opponents have odds of 7/2 with Betway.

Villarreal vs Espanyol

Villarreal will host the first fixture between them and Espanyol in the Round of 16 of the Copa del Rey this Wednesday. The hosts disastrous season continues with each passing week and after 18 games they sit down in 17th which will be a huge disappointment for Luis Garcia after finishing in 5th last season. Their last three fixtures have all ended in draws with their most recent coming against Eibar which ended 0-0. Espanyol find themselves up in eighth place after a strong start to the season. They managed to put an end to their six consecutive losses with a 1-0 win over Leganes on Friday.  Villarreal may be having a poor season, but they do arrive as favourites to win with odds of 17/20 at Bet365, whereas Espanyol have a price of 16/5 with SkyBet.

Real Madrid vs Leganes

The infamous Santiago Bernabeu will be the host as Leganes travel over to take on Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey. As you probably know, this has not been Los Blancos finest season and after 18 games sit down in 5th place, ten points off of the league leaders Barcelona. Madrid are without a win in their last two fixtures with their most recent ending in a 2-0 defeat to Real Sociedad whilst playing at home. Although they are far from their best, they remain clear favourites to take the ‘W’ with a price of 1/4 with Betway. Leganes, as expected, are having a tough season but they remain clear of the relegation zone as they currently sit in 16th place. They had been enjoying an unbeaten run of seven games in the league, but it came to an end on Friday after losing to Espanyol 1-0. If you fancy the underdog’s chances then Bet365 are offering odds of 10/1 for them to win.
