What are the popular Copa Del Rey Betting Markets?

Due to the unpredictability of cup football, punters can often find joy when betting on the Copa del Rey, be it the more standard winner markets or something that will require more finite details of a game.

Final Score

Anybody can predict a winner, whether in 90 minutes or to qualify to the next round in cup competitions, but there is something special about calling the correct score – and it’s no different in the Copa del Rey.

In the early stages of the tournament there are often big scorelines as La Liga teams are paired up against lower-league opposition, with Villarreal’s 9-0 win over sixth-tiered Santa Amalia in the first round one such example. But there is also every chance for a shock, such as little-known Cornella’s 1-0 victory over eventual La Liga champions Atletico Madrid in the 2020/21 season.

Both teams to score

There aren’t many markets more simple than this – you’re backing both teams to get on the scoresheet during normal time in the match. You don’t need a team to win or a specific result, just at least one goal from each side, and it’s something that could be wrapped up really early.

Beforehand it’s worth checking how often the two teams tend to score and concede to ensure you’re making the right decision – and you can also back Both Teams to Score: No, if you feel a clean sheet is likely.

Anytime Scorer

One of many goalscoring markets and again one of the more simple ones. You just need the player you’re backing to score at any point in the match to get your win.

The most popular players will be the top scorers such as Karim Benzema or Robert Lewandowski, who can either hit the back of the net early or put the gloss on a potentially big win.
