Getafe, the ‘seed’ of the parakeets in the Cup


Getafe will be Espanyol’s opponent in the 1/16 finals of the Copa del Rey, after the draw held this Tuesday in Las Rozas. The tie, pending confirmation of date and time, will be played between January 5, 6 and 7, at Stage Front Stadium.

Azulones are a tough ‘bone’ crack for parakeets, although they are not known rivals, because They have met twice in the KO tournament in previous editions. And the balance was tied, as one tie was won by Espanyol and the other by Getafe.

In the 2005-06 edition they met in the 1/8 finals, winning 0-1 at Getafe and 3-3 at Perico fiefdom.a cup tie won by the Catalans, leaving the people of Madrid in the ditch. Amazingly, that year Espanyol were crowned Cup champions, on April 16, 2006, when they beat Real Zaragoza 4-1 in the final at the Bernabéu.

But in the edition 2009-10, Getafe slapped him back and he went down to Spanish. They faced each other like today in the 1/16 final: 2-0 in the first leg played in the azulón field, and 1-1 in Cornellà-El Prat, the azulones eliminate the parakeets.

The luck of the hype wants to pair Espanyol and Getafe again so that the third round of tiebreakers will be played in the cup matches between the two.
