A very quiet Thursday. A cup day.
SPANISH COPA DEL REY
18:00 - Real Madrid v Sociedad - 1.46 Real Madrid
- It seems Real Madrid tend to enjoy the Copa Del Rey. Recent losses came v Leganes and Barcelona.
- Real failed to score only once recently at home in the cup v Barcelona.
- Sociedad are in a run of 8 unbeaten in the cup.
- I would ordinarily not research Cup matches but it is a very quiet day today.
- No ultra strong angles here. Team news key as well. Sociedad's recent record is good in the Copa.
20:00 - Athletico Bilbao v Barcelona - 2.1 Barcelona
- Bilbao have got through the last 2 Copa matches via penalties.
- Barcelona are under a new manager who is yet to show his patterns.They came from behind to beat Ibiza 1-2 but were comfortable 5-0 winners v Leganes.
- Again, no strong angles for me.
17:00 - Aris v Atromitos - 1.58 Aris
- 2 Super League sides in this Cup matches. I thought it worth a mention given the home side are 1.58 favourites.
- Interestingly, Atromitos have lost only 1 of the last 5 head to heads.
- 3 wins in 4 for Aris in the cup plays 3 losses in 4 in the cup for Atromitos.
- No other strong angles.
