The Gibtelecom Rock Cup quarter-finals kicks off tomorrow and here are our predictions.
Gibraltar United vs FC Olympique (Tuesday 12th March – 18:15)
After losing to St Joseph’s last weekend, Gib Utd’s only possible chance of getting into Europe would be winning this year’s Rock Cup. Olympique were unlucky in the final of the Second Division Cup, losing 2-1 to Magpies but with match fitness playing a major factor in their defeat then you’d expect the same to happen again.
Prediction: Gibraltar United win.
St Joseph’s vs Mons Calpe (Tuesday 12th March – 20:30)
A tasty fixture indeed, Saints flying while Mons’ victory over Boca would be a good confidence booster after a poor run of results. Mons have won three of their last five meeting against Saints but with Boro & Juanfri scoring 36 goals between them, you just feel that they’ll play a big part tomorrow night.
Prediction: St Joseph’s win.
Gibraltar Phoenix vs Lions Gibraltar (Wednesday 13th March – 18:15)
Like Gibraltar United, Phoenix’s defeat to Lincoln last weekend leaves them with winning the Rock Cup as their only chance of qualifying into Europe. You would expect Labra and co to sweep aside Lions and progress.
Prediction: Gibraltar Phoenix win.
Brunos Magpies vs Europa (Wednesday 13th March – 20:30)
In an interview with FG, Matheus Assumpcao spoke about how he wished to test himself against Europa and two days later, Magpies’ star-man got his wish. After going unbeaten in the Second Division and winning the Second Division Cup, Europa will be their biggest task this season. We’d be expecting a professional display from the holders as they can’t afford to switch off against Assumpcao, Wyatt and Cuesta.
Prediction: Europa win.
