The 2018/19 final is just days away and the Copa del Rey betting odds show that Barcelona are the hot favourite ahead of opponents Valencia in this match. It's unsurprising really - Barcelona are coming off a season in which they coasted to a La Liga title with weeks to spare ahead of main rivals Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, and they were dominant in the Champions League despite being knocked out in the semi-finals.

But anything can happen in a cup final, and Valencia have also had an outstanding season. They've secured yet another European adventure for 2019/20 via their league position, while they too played excellent soccer in this season's Europa League before also falling at the semi-final stage.

Betting Options

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. Barcelona are great value here at 1.55.

In the Copa del Rey outright winner market, you'll have the simple task of determining which team will win the trophy. You can see how far ahead Barcelona are here - they are at 1.55, while Valencia are outsiders at 5.04

Barcelona are aiming for their fifth consecutive Copa del Rey title, and they have won the last four in style by scoring at least twice in each game. The 2017/18 final saw them thrash Sevilla 5-0, so there's a good chance they will turn it on. For that reason, we recommend betting on the overs in the over/under market. Bet on over 2.5 goals @ 1.58.

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 wll get 2.56 for Barcelona to win with a -1.5 handicap.

Finally, don't forget to check out the player props.  Expect Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez to get on the scoresheet - both scored in last year's final and they look in imperious form once again. 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

Our Copa del Rey Predictions see Barcelona to win their fifth consecutive title and 31st overall. With no disrespect to Valencia, this Barcelona team is on another level, and only a totally catastrophic performance could lead to a shock loss against the Europa League semi-finalists.

Some might argue that Barcelona is capable of such a performance, having travelled to Anfield and lost 4-0 to Liverpool in their recent Champions League match, although we're confident this is a blip on the radar, and the Catalan giants will be much more confident, composed and comfortable in their home country, even if it isn't at the Camp Nou.

barcelona vs valencia prediction

The Barcelona odds to win are best selected in the moneyline market, where you'll get odds of 1.58. As mentioned above, we also think they will score plenty of goals and win by a margin of two or more, so you are advised to select the overs market (1.58) and the -1.5 asian handicap market (2.56) to maximise your returns.

We're also predicting that Barcelona will be quick out of the blocks, and so there's a good chance that the La Liga champions will lead early and be up at half-time. By selecting the half-time/full-time double, you can also improve the odds you would receive in a moneyline bet.

Odds on Barcelona to lead at half-time and win the match in regulation time are listed at 2.43. This is a highly likely result at a great price.

There is also a decent chance of Valencia getting something out of this match. They scored in both legs of their recent Europa League semi-final against Arsenal, and Barcelona showed recently that they do have some defensive frailties at times. The both teams to score market is the one to look for here, we're going to go with 'yes' at 1.61.

How does the Copa del Rey work

The Copa del Rey features teams from Spanish soccer's four highest leagues, meaning over 80 clubs participate each year.  The teams enter the competition at various stages depending on their level, culminating in the La Liga giants entering at the round of 32 stage.

The 2018/19 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 a 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.
