Two Copa del Rey champions, Sevilla and Valencia, will meet at the end of the month in the round of 16. The duel, one of the most attractive of the single-game qualifiers of the final phase of the competition, will be played at the Sánchez Pizjuán stadium, as the Sevilla ball was the first to be extracted from the drum once they had already been resolved the confrontations of the three teams from Second Division and the two from Second B.
One of those teams, Rayo Vallecano, will be Barcelona’s opponent in the round of 16, lucky in the draw. The qualifying rounds will be played on January 26, 27 and 28 in a single match and on the court of the lowest category team.
The finalists of last season’s edition, Athletic and Real Sociedad – the final must still be played next April – will face Alcoyano, the first, and Betis, the second. The two will play the pass to the quarters on someone else’s court. The rest of the confrontations are the Navalcarnero-Granada; Girona-Villareal; Almería – Osasuna; and Valladolid – Levante.
