Betis: Impressive Season

Betis is sitting fifth in the league table, which is enough to make it to the group stages of the Europa League, however, they are being relentlessly pursued by teams just below them who are breathing down their neck, and it would put the fans’ minds at ease if they lift the Copa del Rey and be eligible for a European spot.

Real Betis reached this season’s finale thanks to wins over Alicante, Talavera, Valladolid, Sevilla, Real Sociedad and most recently Rayo Vallecano. They’re packed with talented players with the likes of William Carvalho, Juanmi, and Nabil Fekir – good enough to grace most top clubs in Europe. Possibly, their biggest advantage comes from the fact that the Copa del Rey final takes place at Estadio de La Cartuja in Betis’ home city of Seville. Put it all together and there’s good reason to think that the hosts will win their first Copa since 2005.

With the exception of China, Spain is the only country in which Betis’ coach Manuel Pellegrini has not won a domestic tournament. The Chilean has spent 13 years coaching in Spain but he picked up trophies in Chile, Ecuador, Argentina, and England. It’s time for him to win again and add another trophy to his career tally.

Barring the three Spanish giants Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Atletico Madrid, Betis has scored the most goals in the current edition of the La Liga. They’ve reached their first Copa del Rey final since beating Osasuna in 2005 and with nothing but two Segunda Division titles to their name. They will be desperate to earn some silverware. The hosts have no important injury issues with Pellegrini expected to have an attacking approach so you should look at the goals markets for your soccer picks and parlays.

Valencia: Great Record in Copa del Rey

Valencia has taken the trophy in 2019 beating Barcelona in the final and has a much stronger history in the competition, but they’ll need to improve on the form that’s left them mired in mid-table. If they’re to take something positive from this season. Valencia defeated Utrillas, Arenteiro, Cartagena, Atletico Baleares, Cadiz, and most recently Athletic Club to reach this season’s final.

For Valencia, this is possibly their only shot to represent Spain in the European competitions in the 2022/23 season. They are placed tenth in the league standings at the moment, and with just five games remaining until the end of the season, they need to overcome 14 points to make it to the Conference League.

Valencia’s entire soccer identity starts with what they do when they don’t have the ball, how they press and suffocate opponents into playing the game on their terms but this season they scored just 44 goals in 32 games and they have a negative goal difference, they conceded 48 goals. Jose Bordalas prioritized this final resting many of his key players in the last four La Liga games.

If you’re soccer betting you should always know what players will not be available for the match you’re about to bet on. Goncalo Guedes, their most important player, missed the clash against Villarreal and he will not be available for Saturday’s final. To boot, Valencia will also be without defenders Gabriel Paulista, Toni Lato, and striker Maximiliano Gomez.

Betis vs Valencia Head-to-Head

This is the second time the two teams play each other this season. Betis managed to beat Valencia 4-1 on home soil back in October in the Spanish La Liga. Valencia knocked out Betis last time they played in the Copa del Rey beating them 3-2 on aggregate. We’ve seen at least three goals in five of the previous six mutual encounters between the two sides. Betis has lost just one in their last five direct home games with Valencia scoring at least two goals on four occasions. Betis has won this competition just twice before, while Valencia has won it eight times, finishing runners-up nine times.

Betis vs Valencia Predictions

The hosts enter this final as favorites being priced at +115 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer odds while the goal line is set at 2½.

Five of the past six clashes had goals from both teams. When excluding Barcelona, the last five Copa del Rey finals have been decided by a one-goal margin. We expect another thrilling encounter between two attacking teams.

Given Valencia’s injury issues and their poor road record against Betis, we will take a shot with the hosts to win in regular time and lift the trophy at +115. For our official pick, we’re going with the goals market and will bet the overs. Another amazing value is the odds on Betis to score at least two goals on their own at +115. The 2022 Copa del Rey final is set up to be a classic so don’t miss it.

Pick: Over 2½ goals in the match at -120
