After New Year’s Day hangover the first legs in round 16 of Spanish Copa Del Rey will kick off. We will explore the match day of Copa Del Rey Jan 3rd odds on four games that will take place, and we will give you a hand to bet on the right teams.
The round 32 in Copa Del Rey was already full of surprises. Many teams from Segunda Division B – which is the third level of Spanish football league – were able to defeat their opponents from Spanish La Liga. It will be even more stunning if they keep progressing. Online sportsbooks in Spain expect a walkover for some of La Liga teams, especially Atletico Madrid and Alaves. Let us go through Copa Del Rey Jan 3rd odds on all four upcoming games.
Third-tier teams to keep progress?
Both Athletic Bilbao and Real Sociedad faced shock exits from Copa Del Rey when they lost in round 32 by Segunda B side Lleida Esportiu and Formentera. Lleida are now preparing to welcome the La Liga heavyweight Atletico Madrid at Camp d’Esports, after the latter passed round 32 with comfortable victory on Elche 4-1 on aggregate. The country’s smaller club will have a difficult mission to keep their net clear, while Atleti will focus on completing the task on the first-leg. At Betsupremacy Sportsbook Atleti’s odds stand at 1.28, while for Lleida’s victory the odds are 11.20.

The tiny Balearic island of Formentera team will have slightly easier mission, as they will play against Deportivo Alaves on their municipal stadium with a capacity of 3000 seats. Yet Alaves are doing very good until now and probably Formentera’s audience should celebrate their team’s progress so far and enjoy the next game on the island, but not to hope for further victory. Copa Del Rey Jan 3rd odds for Alaves to win are 1.79, while for Formentera they are 4.74.
Copa Del Rey Jan 3rd odds on Sevilla and Valencia
The La Liga 3rd placed Valencia have finished their year with very shocking results, losing two games at home and one away in a row against Villarreal, Celta Vigo, and Eibar. They will visit Las Palmas who are sitting at the very bottom of La Liga, and they were already defeated 1-0 at Mestalla on the first week in La Liga. We expect Valencia to win the match, unless they shockingly fall again. The odds are 2.24 for Valencia, while they are 3.07 for Las Palmas.
Sevilla will travel south to meet with Segunda Division runner-up Cadiz. Sevilla eased into the last 16 of the Copa Del Rey by thrashing Cartagena with a 7-0 aggregate victory. Their game will not be an easy one, as they will meet with the lower-tier Cadiz who eliminated Real Betis earlier 6-5 on aggregate. Sevilla have the upper hand in the standing odds at Betsupremacy Sportsbook, they are 1.60 for a win to Sevilla, and 5.65 for a win to Cadiz.
