Copa del Rey 2024 |  The presentation of our correspondent from Malaga

The Copa del Rey reaches its 88th edition, the 41st in the ACB era, with the trophy arriving in the capital of the Costa del Sol for the fifth time, a record shared with Madrid and Vitoria. Andalusia is increasingly the epicenter of Spanish basketball: it is the third final phase in five to be held in the southern region of the peninsula (Malaga 2020, Granada 2022) in addition to the 2022 Seville SuperCopa.

There is great anticipation for the event most loved by the Spanish public with at least 7,500 spectators expected to join the local fans for a Carpena that has been sold out for some time. 151 countries connected from every corner of the world (excluding Italy) with the possibility of audio in English.

Unicaja in search of the back to back only managed by Real Madrid and Barça having to challenge the “maldición of the host” and lift the trophy at home, a feat that has not been achieved for 21 years.

Kicking off the proceedings will be the intriguing match between Madrid and Murcia with the Blancos looking for revenge after the 73-61 defeat in the championship. Whoever wins will close a cycle: Madrid hasn’t lost a quarter since 2013 while the university team have never been beaten in the first round in their two previous participations. Mateo’s team presents itself in full force, recovering Llull and Tavares after a month’s stop; Sito Alonso will have to do without Birgander and Ludde. Great expectations for the former Campazzo, seen with the Murcia shirt from 2015 to 2017, and for Ennis in a moment of sensational form. ACB coaches and sporting directors give the Blancos winners with 95% of the votes.

Barça is looking for Copa number 28 to join Madrid in the roll of honour, taking away the title of Rey de Copas. Third meeting between the two Catalan teams in the Copa with a 1-1 result which gives good memories to the Manresa fans given that the ’96 victory in the final made them champions. Same score this season with Pedro Martinez’s men able to beat the Palau Blaugrana in the first round only to lose in the last round played. Among the ranks of Grimau’s men, the absence of Abrines is likely, while Rubio will travel with the team, having recently returned to the squad of Scariolo’s Selección. ACB coaches and sporting directors give Barça the win with 85% of the votes.
