Benito Villamarin to hold Copa del Rey final

Benito Villamarin to hold Copa del Rey final

Real Betis’ Benito Villamarin stadium has been chosen as the host ground of the 2018/2019 Copa del Rey final.

The Spanish FA have been quicker than normal to select the stadium to hold La Copa final and Betis’ home ground has now been confirmed as the venue.

It is the first time that the final has been staged at the Benito Villamarin, having seen cross-city rivals Sevilla host on three occasions previously.

Both Andalusian clubs Betis and Sevilla remain in the competition and have interesting positions in their quarter final ties.

The host side are tied with Catalan side Espanyol 1-1 on aggregate, whilst Sevilla hold a 2-0 advantage over Barcelona, having beaten them at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan last week.

Real Madrid are also still involved and beat Girona 4-2, whilst Getafe are leading Valencia 1-0.

This season’s final has also been selected to be played in the 25th May.
