Real Murcia versus Real Madrid was a Primera Division fixture at the back end of the 07/08 season and now, a few years on, Murcia are floundering in Segunda B (3rd tier) while Madrid have just ascended La Liga after scoring 6 past Santander.
Murcia are a massive 18/1 with to grab a shock and follow in the footsteps of Alcorcon, who last season beat Madrid 4-0 in perhaps Copa Del Rey’s biggest shock in some years.
Up to 32,000 will pack into Murcia’s Nueva Condomina to roar on the Segunda B group 4 leaders, unbeaten in 10, and can at least hope for a stalemate to take back to the Bernabeu (11/2 Stan James). Fascinatingly, Real Madrid lost away at Alcorcon last year, Real Union the year before and drew with Alicante the year before that. Both teams to score at 11/10 with Paddy Power could be a very good bet indeed.
