Copa Del Rey Betting

The Copa Del Rey is one of the top competitions in world football and presents the best teams of Spain to the world. The Copa Del Rey is also the oldest competition in Spanish football, making it one of the most prestigious national competitions in the world. If teams manage to win the competition, they will qualify for the next season's UEFA Europa League, if a team has won the Copa Del Rey and already qualified through their league position, then the position in the Europa League will fall to the next team in the league. Until 2014, this position was given to the Copa Del Rey runner-up, meaning that making it to the latter stages of the competition was beneficial in itself.

As you can see when it comes down to the final of the Copa Del Rey, the vast majority of the time, the favourite comes out on top. The only exception in recent years is when Valencia defeated Barcelona in 2018/19. However, as Barcelona have made the final seven out of the last ten seasons, it could be worth backing them for success again this year and you would imagine success in the Champions League and La Liga may be beyond them this campaign.

Q. Has a team ever played its reserves in the Copa Del Rey final?

A. Yes. In arguably the most bizarre final in history, Real Madrid's reserves took on their main team in 1979/80. This sparked major controversy as it was believed that Castilla would let the main team win and it would be an anti-football event. A final scoreline of 6-1 didn't help matters as eventually reserve teams would be barred from entering the competition after 1990. However, it is worth noting that Real Madrid's reserves defeated the likes of Real Sociedad, Athletic Club, and Sporting Gijon en-route to the final.
