The 2022/23 Copa del Rey quarter-finals are here.
While there have been 16 La Liga teams in the Copa del Rey since the first round, the four participants of the 2022/23 Supercopa de Espana got a bye in rounds one and two, finally entering at the round-of-32.
Those four teams were Barcelona, Real Betis, Real Madrid and Valencia, and they were drawn against teams from the lowest categories (pots 4 and 5 containing teams from Spain’s third and fourth tiers).
All four made it through to the last 16, but defending champions Real Betis were knocked out in the next round by Osasuna, ending their hopes of back-to-back titles. The quarter-finals consists solely of La Liga sides, with Alaves, Sporting Gijon, Levante and Ceuta all falling in the last 16. After the first batch of fixtures, Barcelona and Osasuna have secured their spot in the semi-finals, at the expense of Real Sociedad and Sevilla respectively.
And there’s the small matter of a Madrid Derby for a place in the semi-final with Real Madrid hosting local rivals Atletico Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid are still searching for Copa del Rey number 20 and haven’t won the competition in nine seasons since that Gareth Bale goal helped them beat Barcelona. It’s their longest run without winning the Copa del Rey since going 17 years between 1994 and 2011.
