The match on Estadio Nuevo Arcangel between Cordoba and Granada will start from 1:0 in the guests favor. Two weeks ago, Jhon Cordoba scored in Cordoba’s goal the only goal of a match ended in 10 by the guests. Ekeng being eliminated from the 70th minute.
After that match, today’s hosts had two really great performances in La Liga. First, they won with 1:0 on San Mames (the first and only success obtained this season), after this, they managed to obtain a draw in the match against Levante. For Cordoba (rank 18 in La Liga) will come another hard match on Camp Nou and as the chances to obtain points there are close to zero, the hosts don’t have any reason to spear any players.
Eliminated in the first leg match, Ekeng is suspended for this match. Also will be missing, because of medical problems: Bouzon and Fede Cartabia. The midfielder who came from Valencia in the spring, injured himself in the match against Levante and will be a notable absence, because is the second best player of the team after Ghilas.
Granada are rank neighbors with Cordoba, having one point over them. They come after a defeat suffered in the last minute of the game in the away match played against Espanyol (1:2). In the next round in La Liga they play on Sunday a home match against Getafe, so we believe that their coach will spear some players. Granada in the last 6 official away matches that they played were defeated 4 times and obtained only 2 score draws. The good part is that they scored in almost all the matches and a goal today will be enough for them in order to obtain the qualification.
Joaquin Caparros has 3 unavailable players, all because of medical problems. So Murillo, Machis and Rochina didn’t even go to Cordoba. Out of the 3 absences, only the absence of the South-American midfielder, Murillo is new, the other two being unavailable for more than 3 weeks.

Our tip suggestions
Under 2.5 goals
We don’t expect to see to much of a spectacle on Estadio Nuevo Arcangel. In the first leg match Granada didn’t shoot on their opponents goal, while Cordoba only shoot twice on their goal. We don’t believe that to much will change in two weeks in order to see a match with many goals. More than this we have to say that Cordoba didn’t score in three out of the last 4 official matches played and also they didn’t receive any goals in the last two. Looking at the starting 11 we can see that Granada will probably start with Xisco and the guests with Success and Cordoba. The three have 4 goals scored together in this season.
