The Spanish La Liga is very interesting this season, with Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid tussling at the top of the table. The Champions League is very much underway, and the Copa del Rey reached its quarter-finals stage.
We saw the underdogs Valencia win the Cup last year, so we know that anything can happen. That's the beauty of cup competitions and we'll likely see a few more upsets before we reach the finals.
There are a number of Copa del Rey betting options available, and the moneyline market is the first place to start. Remember, this market is all about the 90-minute result, so it includes the draw. The Copa del Rey final may go to extra time and penalties, although the moneyline option asks you to pick the regulation time result.
In the Copa del Rey outright winner market, you'll have the simple task of determining which team will win the trophy.
Barcelona is aiming will look to make it their 31st win this year. The 2017/18 final saw them thrash Sevilla 5-0, so there's a good chance they will turn it on. However, the freak loss to Valencia last year does upset their run of great performances in the Final. For that reason, we recommend betting on the overs in the over/under market.
Similarly, Barcelona's previous four victories in the Copa del Rey final have all featured a margin of at least two clear goals, so the Asian handicap line comes into play. If you select Barcelona with a handicap of -1.5, it means they would need to win by 2 goals or more for you to win your wager. This market is great value, you will get 2.56 for Barcelona to win with a -1.5 handicap.
Finally, don't forget to check out the player props. Expect one of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez or Antoine Griezmann to get on the scoresheet - all three are more than capable of coming up with the goods when Barcelona needs them. You can bet on the anytime goalscorer or the first goalscorer, and odds will become available as the match approaches.
Spain Copa del Rey Predictions
The remaining contenders for the 2020 Copa del Rey title are not your usual suspects. The big guns in Real Madrid and Barcelona are now eliminated, while the other big players in Sevilla, Valencia and Atletico Madrid are also out.
Real Sociedad are the favourites in the bookmakers' eyes, given that they are in a better position in La Liga than any other team left in the competition. However, we fancy the second-place favourite in Athletic Bilbao. The Basque giants are veterans of Spanish football and their team of homegrown players is full of excellent young talent.

The Copa del Reyfeatures teams from Spanish soccer's four highest leagues, meaning 126 clubs participate each year. The teams enter the competition at various stages depending on their level, culminating in the La Liga giants entering the round of 32 stage.
The 2019/20 tournament is a straight knockout competition and features a mixture of one-leg and two-leg ties. The early stages of the tournament (round 1-3) are decided by one-off fixtures, while the round of 32, round of 16, quarter-finals and semi-finals are decided by home and away fixture between the two teams. The final is then played at a neutral venue and consists of a solitary match to decide the title.
Copa del Rey revamps its format for 2019-20
The Copa del Rey is expanding in 2019-20 and will feature 126 teams - this is because entries will now be open to Spain's fifth tier league.
The other big change will see a reduction of matches - all matches before the semi-finals will now be decided by just one match, and in all cases where teams from different divisions play against each other, the match will be hosted by the team in the lower tier. This increases the chances of a small club hosting a giant like Barcelona or Real Madrid.
When and where is the Copa del Rey final
We are still waiting for the Real Federación Española de Fútbol to confirm the date and the venue.
The winner of the tournament gains automatic qualification to the next season's Europa League (unless they have already gained entry to the Champions League via their position in La Liga).
Who will broadcast the Copa del Rey final
The match will be broadcast on beIN sports in Canada.
