Millions of viewers watch the Copa del Rey action during each round of the competition, and at 888sport we've got all the betting markets you could ever need to make viewing the showpiece tournament even more exciting.
Formed in 1903, the Copa del Rey was effectively Spain's national football championship until the foundation of the Campeonato de Liga in 1928. Back then, teams would qualify for the tournament via their regional leagues, with only a select few champions being permitted to enter the cup.
After a national league was established in Spain, the tournament expanded significantly to include more teams. Today, the Copa del Rey typically features 82 teams from the Primera, Segunda A and Segunda B divisions of Spanish football along with the winner of the Tercera Division.
Though the format has been tinkered with many times over the years – with a league format briefly trialled at one stage – in its modern day incarnation, the Copa del Rey's early rounds are all one-off games in which the lower division team is given home advantage. The ties become two-legged affairs from the round of 32 onwards, with the final reverting to a one-off game at a neutral venue.
Given the number of teams that enter the Copa del Rey and the infrequency with which they meet, you'll be pleased to know that 888sport's in-built statistics collate any previous encounters between the two sides.
We also provide up-to-date information on team form and a host of other useful data including how each side has fared in the previous rounds of the competition. With all this and more just a click away on our statistics button, you'll be able to make the best decision possible on 888sport.
