Sevilla, Athletic Bilbao and Villarreal in 11/2 Copa del Rey treble

| 29.01.2015

Coral are offering a sumptuous Spanish midweek special, for all of Sevilla, Athletic Bilbao and Villarreal to win their respective Copa del Rey quarter-final matches with enhanced odds of 11/2.

The Bathtubs host Catalan club Espanyol, Ernesto Valverde’s Basque outfit welcome Malaga and the Yellow Submarine are on the road to Getafe.

They will be vying for a place in the semi-finals of the Spanish cup, and here are more reasons why you should back this trio.

Sevilla v Espanyol
Spain’s oldest football club Sevilla have remarkably lost just one of their last 11 meetings with upcoming cup opponents Espanyol in all competitions, winning seven, and are on a great run in La Liga currently too. They are, therefore, odds-on 4/7 favourites to beat the Basques once more.

Carlos Bacca enjoys playing this team, having netted three times against them in recent seasons, so back the Colombian to lead his side through to the semis.

Athletic Bilbao v Malaga
Malaga are without a win in La Liga in four games, so go into this tie in bad form. Basque-based Bilbao, meanwhile, are undefeated at home to their visitors in their last seven meetings, so back them at even-money to win again.

Bilbao won 3-0 at their San Mames Stadium in this fixture last season against Malaga, and have odds of 18/1 for that scoreline once more. Attackers Iker Muniain and Markel Susaeta could cause problems here.

Getafe v Villarreal
The final match of this special sees Villarreal on the road to Spanish strugglers Getafe. The Yellow Submarine have won seven of their last nine matches in La Liga, losing none, with the hosts been beaten in three of their previous four.

Villarreal have won each of the last three head-to-heads with Getafe, with two of them being to nil, which is why they are odds-on at 10/11 for victory, and 21/10 to do so without conceding.
