Soccer Betting | 2022 Copa del Rey Round of 16 Predictions

Atletico Madrid +135 vs Real Sociedad San Sebastian +193

  • When: Wednesday, Jan. 19

Atletico versus Sociedad should be a fantastic soccer match. Both teams have 33 points on the La Liga Primera Division standings.

So even though this isn’t a league match, it means something to both teams. Sociedad has both a slight edge when it comes to venue and home pitch. The match happens in the Reale Arena in San Sebastian, but that’s not the lone reason to back Real Sociedad.

On Jan. 9, Atletico drew 2-2 against Villareal. The road favorite in this followed that match up with a 1-2 loss versus Bilbao in a Supercopa match on Jan. 13.

Sociedad has won their last couple of matches, a 3-2 victory over Leganes and a 1-0 win against Celta Vigo. At the odds, the home team is an overlay.    

Soccer Pick: Real Sociedad San Sebastian  

Real Madrid -188 vs Elche CF +429

  • When: Thursday, Jan. 20

Elche is in decent form. The huge home dog has won their last couple, both by 2-1 scores, over Almeria and Espanyol.

But although Elche has a shot, they’re actually an underlay at +429. Going all the way back to 2014, Elche hasn’t beaten Real in the last 5 head-to-head. The closest Elche got to a victory was a 1-1 draw in 2020.

The road chalk has won 4 straight. 3 of the 4 wins were by at least 2 goals. The only team to keep it close was Barcelona in a Clasico match that Real won 3-2. Real can win this by at least 2 goals. 

Soccer Pick: Real Madrid  

FC Barcelona +125 vs Athletic Bilbao +196

  • When: Thursday, Jan. 20

These teams are in similar form. Both show a victory, a draw, and a loss in their last 3. The big difference is that Barca drew 1-1 with Granada on Jan. 8 and fell by just 1 goal to Real Madrid on Jan. 13.

Don’t get us wrong. Because they’re the home squad, Athletic Bilbao has a shot. But Barcelona should win this. Barca is primed to return to the glory years. 

Xavi feels that the loss to Real Madrid is the real start to Barcelona’s season. For the first time this season, Xavi played Ferran Torres. Torres is one of the top players in the world. So he brings much required striking talent to Barcelona’s attack.

Bilbao will put up a fight. Barcelona wins. At above even money, Barca’s an overlay.  

Soccer Pick: Barcelona
