Alcoyano hosts Athletic Bilbao

Alcoyano hosts Athletic Bilbao at the Campo Municipal El Collao in a game from the 1/8-finals of the Spanish Copa del Rey. We will try to preview it for you in the best possible football prediction betting tips today. Let’s get to work!

Be very, very careful with Alcoyano here. Why? Because this is the club which shockingly eliminated Real Madrid in the previous round of the competition. The Segunda B team hosted the La Liga champions at home and progressed after an unexpected 2-1 win after extra time. Madrid opened the score at the end of the first half, but Jose Solbes equalised for Alcoyano. The home side won the game wth a late goal from Juanan in the 115th minute. It was an impressive and inspiring performance by the club.

Real Madrid are the second La Liga team which Alcoyano eliminated from the competition. Before this they did the same thing with Huesca. Are now Athletic the next one?

Athletic Bilbao look inspired since their stunning triumph over Barcelona in the Super Cup final. Since then the Basques won twice – against Ibiza in the Copa del Rey 1/16-finals and against Getafe in La Liga. It seems that Marcelino’s team is in a great shape right now.

In their last match Athletic scored five times against Getafe at the San Mames Barria. It was a marvelous performance. The visitors scored in the first minute of the game, but after this there was just one team on the pitch. Raul Garcia equalised while in the second half Yeray, Garcia again, Alex Berenguer and De Marcos finished the job.

That’s the football prediction betting tips today for the Copa del Rey 1/8-finals game between Alcoyano and Athletic Bilbao. Can the hosts continue dreaming and beat a third consecutive La Liga team? Let’s see what the tough Basques are going to say.
