Orihuela vs Villarreal Match Preview
Villarreal travel to Orihuela for their Copa del Rey clash in great shape and looking to build on a four-match winning streak seen across competitions since mid-December, where they beat Sevilla (1-2), Getafe (1-0), and Real Sociedad (1-2) to La Liga points and outclassed 4th tier Comillas (0-5) in Copa del Rey.
Yellow Submarine completed a second-half comeback at Reale Arena on Sunday as Manu Trigueros and in-form Santi Cazorla led the side to a 1-2 win, which will be another great boost to their confidence. Javi Calleja will want to build on such consistency and we do expect his men motivated to impress.
Orihuela will not be the same sort of a challenge either and they come into the match with obvious woes in Segunda B Group 3, sitting rock-bottomed with just 13 points to their name after 19 games played. They only shared the spoils in a 2-2 draw against similarly struggling Gimnastic Tarragona last week, as defensive slip-ups prove costly once again.
Scorpions beat Cornella on penalties after a goalless draw to make their way to the 2nd Round but shutting down Villarreal now feels like a mission impossible. They’re still looking for a home win this term and conceding two or more goals in four of the last five outings here sounds no more assuring either.
We are thus backing Villarreal to a confident win at Los Arcos Municipal Stadium and we’ll back the visitors to a win to Nil, which feels like buying money for old rope as they can obviously boast more depth in quality even with a rotated line-up at this point.
We do feel we’re in for goals and Villarreal should be able to move forward with pace, as we now also go for Over 3.5 Goals FT. We’re hoping for a one-sided contest in Orihuela and we feel the home side can do little to prevent a thrashing loss on Saturday evening.
