The Seville-based side Real Betis currently sit sixth in La Liga, per Sky Sports, exactly where they finished last year — while Valencia CF are struggling along in eighth after rising to the fourth spot on the table last season. That means for both teams, their best chance at silverware would be to capture the Copa del Rey — and either team is just 120 minutes away from a spot in the Cup final set for May 25.
There, they will have their work cut out for them as they come up against either Barcelona or Real Madrid. On Thursday, the first 90 minutes of the second Copa del Rey semifinal will stream live from Seville.

For Betis, playing the Cup final would have added meaning — and perhaps even an advantage — with the game scheduled to take place from their own home pitch at the Benito Villamarín. While Thursday’s match marks the first appearance for the Heliopolitanos in the Copa del Rey semifinals since 2005 — the year they recorded the more recent of their two Cup titles — they come into the showdown with Valencia having allowed just one home goal in this season’s Cup competition. They have also suffered only three defeats in their last 17 matches across all competitions, according to SportsKeeda.
Both clubs head into the first-leg contest coming off inspiring performances last weekend in La Liga, per Soccerway. Valencia pulled out a 2-2 away draw against La Liga leaders and defending champions Barcelona, while Real Betis unceremoniously dumped second-place Atletico Madrid 1-0 in Seville.
