Copa del Rey Betting Preview: Real Madrid good value

The powerhouse club from the Spanish capital are looking good to get the better of their Catalan rivals, with punters able to take advantage of a tight one
Real Madrid look excellent value as slight outsiders to win the Copa del Rey final against Barcelona on neutral soil at Estadio Mestalla in Valencia on Wednesday.

Carlo Ancelotti's team are paying $2.60 at bet365 to win Spain's premier domestic cup competition, with Barca $2.50 and the draw priced at $3.60.

The last match between these two saw the Catalan giants beat their arch-rivals from the capital 4-3 away from home in one of the best Clasico encounters in recent years. We don't expect a repeat of that scoreline and neither do the bookmakers, with another 4-3 result in Barca's favour a lengthy $67.00.


Back Real Madrid at $2.60

Make it a 2-1 Madrid win at $10.00

Since that triumph, Barca have bowed out of the UEFA Champions League at the hands of Atletico Madrid and lost in the league to lowly Granada on Saturday, so our money is on Real to lift the trophy.

Real's last Clasico success was a 2-1 home Liga win in March 2013, and you can get a healthy $10.00 on Los Blancos triumphing by that scoreline again this week.

The team from Estadio Santiago Bernabeu have only led at half-time once in the last six Clasicos, so if you fancy them to win this one, perhaps it's worth going for the half-time draw, full-time Real win at $6.50.
