Can Mirandes beat more top-flight opposition?

Mirandes are a mid-table side in the second tier in Spain. They are in solid enough form there, currently running along on a six-match undefeated streak. But this Copa del Rey campaign has been a real highlight for them. After coming through two high-scoring ties in the first and second rounds, Mirandes played host to top-flight side Celta Vigo in the round of 32.

The underdogs collected a 2-1 win after extra time to upset the odds. That put them through to another home draw, this time against the stronger Sevilla, who are a top-four side in La Liga. Remarkably Mirandes came up big in producing a 3-1 home success. So with them being back on home soil for the quarter-finals, they should be really fired up.

Our betting prediction:

(odds taken 12:43 GMT, Monday 3rd February)

Mirandes have scored at least two goals in each of their four ties in the competition this season. Three of them have needed extra time to be settled. All four have gone over 2.5 goals. Mirandes have not lost any of their last fourteen games at home in all competitions. They have banked a clean sheet in five of their last eight on home turf as well.


Can Villarreal handle tricky road trip?

Villarreal have found a nice bit of form for themselves in La Liga. Five wins in their last six games there have put them within touching distance of pushing for a top-four finish. Across all competitions, they have won eight of their last ten played (D1 L1). Three of their last four wins have been away from home as well. So they certainly have their claims to get through this tie.

All of those games have been against teams from lower divisions. Villarreal have scored at least two goals in each of their wins, three of them coming with a clean sheet. In their last seven away games in all competitions, Villarreal are W6 D1.
