Melilla vs Real Madrid: Head-to-head
Melilla will have the honour of playing Real Madrid for the first time ever on Wednesday.
Melilla vs Real Madrid: Prediction
The hosts are doing well at the start of the new season in the third division. They sit second in their respective Segunda B group with 6 wins, 3 draws and 1 defeat in 10 matches so far. Luis Carrion’s men took advantage of the easier draw to see off Ontinyent 2-0 at home in the previous round of Copa del Rey.
Melilla won 8, drew 1 and lost 1 of last 10 games across competitions. Such streak will obviously count for little when they come face to face with the likes of Real Madrid who head into this as enormous favourites in spite of a run of four defeats in last five matches in all competitions.
Madrid dropped down to 9th place in La Liga ladder after winning just one point from last five league affairs. Their players will be highly motivated to boost up the confidence and turn the momentum on their side with a demolishing victory over the lower-division opponent here.
