Copa del Rey draw: Atletico to face Cornella as Barcelona, Real Madrid given byes

SoccerNews in La Liga 18 Dec 2020


Atletico Madrid will face third-tier side Cornella in the second round of the Copa del Rey.

Diego Simeone’s side will head to Catalonia for the match on January 6, just three days after they face Deportivo Alaves in LaLiga.

Atleti beat Cardassar 3-0 in the previous round to reach this stage, at which teams from the top flight cannot yet be drawn against each other.

Barcelona, Real Madrid, Athletic Bilbao and Real Sociedad were all given byes to the next round as they will be competing in the Supercopa de Espana early next month.

The draw was designed so that LaLiga clubs would face one-off matches against teams from below the second tier, with all those games taking place at the home grounds of those lower-ranked sides.

Valencia will face Yeclano, Sevilla take on Linares and Real Betis will play Mutilvera.

Eibar head to Las Rozas, Villarreal will meet Zamora or Logrones and Real Valladolid must take on Marbella.

Oviedo, meanwhile, must make a journey of more than 983 kilometres to face Malaga.

The matches will take place on January 5, 6 and 7, with the draw for the next round on January 8.
