Barcelona 2/5 to win this season’s Spanish Copa Del Rey
Competition: Spanish Copa Del Rey
Market: Barcelona to win the trophy
Odds: 2/5 @ Betfair
Barcelona recently beat Athletic Bilbao comfortably over two legs to book their place in the Spanish Copa Del Rey semi-finals, and are in pole position to defend their trophy. It’s the sixth consecutive year they have made the final four, and have made five of the last seven finals.
The Catalans beat Bilbao in last season’s final and are big favourites to go all the way this time round given the opposition left in the competition. Celta Vigo, Sevilla/Mirandes and Las Palmas/Valencia are the remaining sides in the cup, and opposition that Barca will fancy their chances against.
Real Madrid were eliminated for fielding an illegible player while Atletico Madrid were knocked out by Celta, so there are two heavyweights already gone from the semi-final draw. Barcelona won’t be threatened against any remaining side, and as a result, Betfair are backing the Catalans with odds of 2/5 to successfully defend their trophy.
Despite regularly making the final of the Copa Del Rey in recent years, Barcelona have lost twice in their last four. They’ll be looking to amend such a record this season.
