When should you tune in for live Spanish Cup games?
La Copa was once the main national football competition in Spain, but now it plays second fiddle to the famous La Liga. That means fixtures are pretty erratic, as they’re squeezed in around La Liga games.
That said, many Spanish Cup games are played on Wednesday and Thursday nights (Spain/Central European Time). The final usually takes place in the third week of May. If you check the latest listings in advance, you can watch the games you want with your VPN.

Who will lift the Spanish Copa del Rey Cup this year?
Unlike La Liga, the Copa del Rey isn’t totally predictable. It’s the nature of knockout soccer. In the last 10 years, it’s been won five times by teams other than Barcelona and Real Madrid.
Barca will almost certainly win the 2016 cup, though. They hammered Valencia 7-0 in the home leg of the semis. And they’re generally amazing. So that’s that.
Of course, if you disagree, you can feel free to share your own predictions in the comments. And don’t forget to set up your VPN before the next round. We don’t want any more La Copa calamities!
