Villarreal, Barca and Malaga feature in sensational 7/2 special

| 21.01.2015

Coral’s Copa del Rey coverage continues with La Liga sides, Villarreal, Barcelona and Malaga all to win at a sizzling 7/2 price.

Villarreal v Getafe
The Yellow Submarines are overwhelmingly odds-on at 4/11 to sink Getafe at the El Madrigal and have already beaten their visitors there already this season in La Liga, with the game finishing 2-1 to Marcelino Toral’s men. Striker Gerard Moreno hit the winner on that occasion, and having netted 10 times in 17 appearances this term, is 7/2 to score last.

Having not lost in 15 fixtures, across all competitions the home side will be confident of achieving the requisite result, with Getafe only recording one win in six.

Barcelona v Atletico Madrid
Odds-on at 1/2, Barca will be confident of victory against Diego Simeone’s side, having also beaten them very recently in La Liga, 3-1, with Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar all getting on the scoresheet.

A 4-0 away hammering of Deportivo last time out in La Liga will only add to their confidence, and Messi who dispatched a hat-trick, is 7/2 to score two or more, while Neymar is 4/1 to net first and Suarez, who has five goals in 15 Barcelona appearances this term is 9/2 in the same market.

Luis Enrique’s side have recorded 14 wins in their last 16 matches across all competitions, racking up a remarkable 55 strikes in the process. Their opponents, meanwhile, have just one win in three.

Malaga v Athletic Bilbao
Malaga have lost just one of their last five home matches, and it is this kind of form that gives them more than a fighting chance against Basque outfit Bilbao. Ricardo Horta has netted two in his last four fixtures, and is well priced at 14/5 to score anytime.

The home side recorded a win over Bilbao earlier in the season, with Luis Alberto grabbing the goal that made all the difference and is 15/2 to net first in this cup clash.
