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. This knockout tournament 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 Spanish Cup 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.

Copa Del Rey Match Betting

When checking odds at the bookmakers for the Copa Del Rey, a number of attributes have to be considered, not just the standard - who are the better team? For example, if you check our La Liga page, you may notice that odds for the same fixture could be dramatically different, even with the same game. Even with the same opponent, games played on a Wednesday and Saturday could have vastly different betting odds and predictions for the score. Towards the end of the competition, games are played later in the week, similar to a typical La Liga fixture, so teams who are playing in competitions such as the Champions League and Europa League are prone to shock results with this format, these teams will either take the competition seriously and progress far into the tournament or suffer shock defeats looking to prioritise competitions other than the Spanish Copa Del Rey.

After each round of the competition, you will find out what the next Copa Del Rey match will include, with teams being drawn against each other. The domestic cup comprises teams from the top tier and lower divisions of Spanish football, potentially paving the way for an upset.

With Copa Del Rey betting, for any matches where you have a clear favourite, handicap betting can improve the odds by creating an advantage for the underdog. For example, Elche CF might find themselves up against Real Madrid, but a handicap of -2.5 would mean that Madrid needs to win by more than 2.5 goals for the bet to be successful.

At Bet UK, Copa Del Rey betting also displays the latest odds for the top goalscorer award come to the end of the tournament. As teams can take an early exit, considering players who have the quality to get goals, as well as those who are likely to make it to the later stages of the tournament, will be key factors for selecting a good candidate.

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.
