Spain Copa del Rey Betting Odds Comparison

2018-19 Semi Final Second Legs Tips

Real Madrid v Barcelona - Over 3.5 Goals

Real Madrid’s season continues to splutter. After two very good away wins - one in La Liga against Atletico Madrid and one in the Champions League against Ajax - Santiago Solari’s men were beaten at home by Girona. That is far from the perfect preparation ahead of the second leg of their Copa del Rey semi final against Barcelona.

Real Madrid do at least have a strong position in the semi final having secured a 1-1 draw at the Camp Nou. Barcelona will not be scared about the size of the task they face though. This may not be a vintage Barca side but they are top of La Liga and will have little trouble scoring at the Santiago Bernabeu. Likewise, Real should grab a goal or two as well which has raised hopes among neutrals of an entertaining match. Therefore, the best option of all available football betting odds may well be the 11/8 that bet365 are quoting on over 3.5 goals.

Valencia v Real Betis - Valencia to Win and Both Teams to Score

Valencia confirmed their place in the round of 16 of the Europa League thanks to a couple of very professional wins over Celtic. Their route to the final of the Copa del Rey has been slightly different as they were unable to beat Real Betis in the first leg at the Benito Villamarín Stadium. Our odds comparison shows that they are the favourites to make it through the tie but will surely need to score more than once in order to beat a Betis side who can be very dangerous going forwards.

Betis’ problems have come at the other end of the pitch. Their defensive record is in need of improvement to say the least and may be their undoing once again. That makes a bet on Valencia to win and both teams scoring look well priced at best betting odds of 13/5.

The Copa Del Rey is the principle domestic cup competition in Spanish football and sees the might of teams such as Barcelona and Real Madrid do battle with some of Spain’s minnows. If you fancy betting on this competition the best way to make a profit is by getting the best odds available and the best way to that is by using our live betting odds comparison.

The Copa Del Rey doesn’t have the pull or appeal of the FA Cup in England, although it is the equivalent of that great competition. It is said that the biggest sides do not take the Copa Del Rey seriously, although the stats would perhaps suggest otherwise, with Barcelona the side that has won it more frequently than any other.

The Catalan giants are not far off 30 Copa Del Reys but the fact that Athletic Bilbao have won it more times than Real Madrid and that 10 different sides have won it since 2000, with a further four making the final, does indicate it is not a major priority for the top sides.

That said, whilst those betting on the Copa Del Rey must take into account the possibility of sides fielding weakened sides when they assess the odds, betting on the Copa Del Rey remains one great way to liven things up!
