Now you can watch Copa del Rey KO stages



With the possibility of another Copa del Rey El Clasico showdown a distinct possibility, SuperSport has acquired the rights to the knockout stages of Spanish football’s oldest competition.

El Clasico rivals Barcelona and Real Madrid have now locked horns in the Copa del Rey three times in the last two editions. A fifth and sixth meeting in the semifinals of this year’s edition looks to be on the cards.

Brandon Foot, Head of Acquisition and Legal for SuperSport, was elated at the addition of the tournament to the schedule.

“With the tournament now entering the business end and the prospect of two El Clasico matchups, we are delighted to be bringing to most of our subscribers more matches of Spanish football’s premier cup competition.”

SuperSport will waste no time in scheduling the tournament, with all four of this week’s quarterfinal second leg matches to be broadcast live.

On Wednesday, Real Madrid will be aiming to seal their qualification to the semis at the expense of Valencia whom they hammered 5-0 on Sunday in a league encounter. They are 2-0 up from last week’s first leg encounter.

Wednesday’s other match, Sevilla against Real Zaragoza, hangs in the balance after the first leg ended in a goalless draw.

Madrid’s arch-nemesis, Barcelona, are in action on Thursday against Malaga. The Catalans have it all to do if they are to make the semis after a 2-all first leg home draw. Atletico Madrid, two goals to the good against Real Betis, complete the quarterfinal matchups.

Victory for Barcelona and Real Madrid on the night will set up another round of the world’s greatest football rivalry: El Clasico.

NOTE: Broadcast of the Copa del Rey will not be available in Angola, Mozambique and Cape Verde.
