Real Betis and Valencia will renew their hostilities when they lock horns at Estadio la Cartuja in the 2022 Copa del Rey final on Saturday night with kickoff at 23:00.
Two-time Copa del Rey winners Real Betis managed to make it to the final of this year’s competition following their 3-2 aggregate victory over Rayo Vallecano in the semi-finals; while the eight-time champions Valencia earned their place in the final after overcoming Athletic Bilbao 2-1 on aggregate in their semi-final.
Now both side don’t really need any more motivation to clinch a win in this game, but Real Betis will fancy their chances as they have generally fared well this term and have claimed the upper hand against Valencia in their recent meetings, with Betis picking up three victories and one draw from their last five encounters.
Also, despite losing 1-0 to Elche last time out in La Liga, Betis are in a better form than Valencia who lost 2-0 to Villarreal last time out. Betis have won two and drawn one of their last four league matches and currently sit fifth on 57 points in the standings, while Valencia have lost two and drawn two of their last four La Liga games and currently sit 10th on 42 points.
