Copa del Rey Betting Tips
If you want to be a part of the passion and excitement of this glorious tournament, these Copa del Rey betting tips will help to get you started.
Check Current Form
Research is the cornerstone of all football predictions; however, it’s slightly different with the Copa del Rey. Still, the best place to start is with the current form, both in this competition and the league, of the teams that are playing.
Squads and Lineups
Some of the bigger clubs field several fringe players, which creates the perfect storm for bettors.
Check the squads to see which players are registered. Furthermore, look back through previous rounds to see what the lineups were.
This is vital data because it gives the bookmaker a dilemma. They cannot give exceedingly low odds on one of the top teams because it means much longer odds for the opponent.
However, if the odds are high (on the favourite) and they field a full-strength side, the betting site could be stung.
Know the Markets
As matches are settled on the night, there are a couple of different betting markets to know about.
For instance, you can bet on the ‘team to go through’. This is different to 1×2 because it could be via extra time or penalties. Also, remember that 1×2 is only for 90 minutes, not 120.
Ultimately, make sure you know the markets so that you can find the best value bets based on your predictions for each match.
Copa del Rey Bonuses
In addition to regular sign-up bonuses, reload offers, and free bets, the betting company may come up with exclusive Copa dep Rey promotions, such as boosted odds or acca insurance. It is always worth watching out for these as they can add more value to your betting experience.

The Copa del Rey is the oldest football competition in Spain and it’s considered one of the most prestigious domestic cup trophies in the game. To highlight its stature, the winners of the Copa del Rey qualify for next season’s UEFA Europa League.
Like all domestic cups, its importance to some of the bigger clubs has diminished somewhat due to the Champions League. However, at the local level, it’s still held in high regard.
No, it doesn’t. If the games end in a draw, then 30 minutes of extra time is played. If the teams are still level after extra time, it goes to a penalty shoot-out until there’s a winner.
Teams from Spain’s top leagues automatically qualify for the Copa del Rey; however, a few teams enter at different stages. For the 2022/2023 edition, there were 125 teams in total at the start of the competition, with winners of regional divisions in Spain’s fifth tier of its football pyramid invited to join the competition.
The highest goalscorer in Copa del Rey history is Telmo Zarra with 81 goals. He scored all of these playings for Athletico Bilbao from 1939 – 1957. In modern history, Lionel Messi, previously of Barcelona, is the highest scorer with 57 goals. This season, the current top scorer (up to the round of 16) is of Enrique “Kike” García Martínez Osasuna.
