Barca drew a fierce opponent for the King’s Cup
The three-time winner of the King of Barcelona Cup will fight the Celta at the 1/8-final of this year’s race. This puts the present in the Las Rosas sports center near Madrid. Only three days ago Ernesto Valverde’s boys failed to defeat the Gallic team at Camp Nou in a match of the Primera Liga. The first match of the elimination for the Cup will be at Balaidos and the rematch in Catalonia. Last season, the Vigo team removed Real Madrid and reached the 1/2-final in the La Copa tournament.
Spain’s Real Madrid has dropped with a much lighter opponent, with the second-round Numancia. The first meeting will be in Soria, and the rematch – at Santiago Bernabeu. Atletico Madrid has pulled one of the two third-team teams – the Catalan Lady. The rule requires Athletes to play in the first match of the lower-level football team. The other couples are not attractive at first reading. There will be an Andalusian derby between Seville’s ambitious team and Betis-Cadiz’s “executioner”. The second in La Liga Valencia has to deal with the lame Las Palmas. The suffered sensation in the past round of the Formentera team will fight with Alayes. The other two pairs are Leganes – Villarreal and Espanyol – Levante.
The 1/8-final meeting is on January 3rd and 10th.
