It’s been eleven years since Valencia CF last scored in the Copa del Rey final to secure the seventh and most recent Spanish Cup overall victory over Getafe in Madrid 3-1. Three years earlier, Betis Sevilla scored the most recent big coup: 2-1 after extra time against Osasuna – also in Madrid and also in the now demolished Estadio Vicente Calderón.
Since then, both teams have never made it back to the final, which will inevitably change this year.

That would be a very special situation for the Verdiblancos, as the final on 25 May 2019 will take place at the Estadio Benito Villamarín, the home of Betis Sevilla.

The lending of PSG striker Jesé was also critical of many, while Diego Lainez, who came from Mexico for 14 million euros, still has to prove that he is worth this huge investment. But all these transfer activities had taken a back seat at the weekend at the latest. In the 1-0 home win over Atlético Madrid, the Verderones finally managed a really big coup, could be defended by the sixth place in the table and the maximum momentum for the cup fight against Valencia has been established.
