As the FA Cup replays get underway on Tuesday night, there are plenty of intriguing midweek fixtures that can tide us all over.
Ahead of a Tuesday schedule that offers a string of heavyweight affairs from across the continent, we have taken an in-depth look at a couple of noteworthy betting markets that are worth keeping an eye out for.
19:00 Getafe vs Sevilla
While Getafe might have spent the majority of last season at the heart of a La Liga relegation scrap, Tuesday’s hosts have certainly made a string of improvements this time around. Battling it out in the top half of the table, the Blues will be dreaming of the chance to mount a genuine Copa del Rey charge in 2024.
Extending on their adventure last week as they snatched a 1-0 victory away at Espanyol, the mood in Jose Bordalas’ camp should be at a real high.
Although Getafe might need a minor miracle in their bid to punch a famous European ticket this year, the Madrid-based outfit have remarkably lost just a pair of their last 16 straight appearances across all competitions.
With that extended purple patch stemming all the way back to September 24th, it should also be highlighted that Bordalas’ men have suffered just a single domestic defeat in front of their own supporters since the end of April.
Likewise, breezing their way to a stellar 3-0 romp when they last met Sevilla on top-flight duties on December 16th, Getafe should be smelling a golden opportunity in midweek.
Putting in another nightmare performance last week as they slumped to a 3-2 loss at home against Alaves, it is no secret that Los Nervionenses are at the heart of another La Liga crisis.
Holding just a one-point buffer from slipping into the drop zone, Quique Sanchez Flores already has a substantial amount of pressure on his shoulders.
Opening the New Year with a toothless performance as they suffered a 2-0 loss against Athletic Bilbao, Sevilla have lost five of their previous six meetings against La Liga opposition.
It should also be highlighted, Tuesday’s guests have recorded just a single top-flight win away from the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan since way back on May 14th.

19:30 Wolves vs Brentford
While Wolves might have opened up the 2023/24 campaign tipped by many as a potential relegation contender, Gary O’Neil’s side have continued to receive a string of public praise this season. Finding their feet since appointing the former Bournemouth boss over the summer, Tuesday’s hosts are certainly firing on all cylinders.
Looking to extend on their FA Cup adventure at the second attempt here, Wolves have lost just one of their previous seven showdowns against Premier League opposition and they have their sights firmly set on clinching a top-half finish.
Signing off 2023 with a stunning performance as they breezed their way to a 3-0 romp against Everton, O’Neil’s side will also be excited by their continued success at Molineux.
In fact, including respective 2-1 victories against Chelsea and Tottenham, Wolves have not lost any of their last eight showdowns in front of their own supporters – a purple patch that stems all the way back to September 16th.
Impressing with their free-scoring performances in the final third, Tuesday’s hosts should be relishing Brentford’s arrival here.
Although Thomas Frank’s side might have opened the 2023/24 campaign dreaming of the chance to punch another top-half finish, the Bees are at the heart of a public nightmare.
Suffering an FA Cup collapse at home against Wolves last week, Brentford have remarkably registered just a single win from any of their previous 10 meetings against Premier League opposition.
Likewise, losing all of their last four showdowns outside of west London by an aggregate score of 9-2, Frank’s men should be bracing themselves for a stern challenge here.
Still unable to call upon attacking talisman Ivan Toney on Tuesday night, we are backing Wolves to extend on their FA Cup adventure at Molineux.
