The Linares, 1st RFEF team, will be the Barça’s rival in the last 16 of the Copa del Rey which will be played in a single match on January 4, 5 and 6, 2022. Barça will visit the Linarejos stadium in this cup round, the first for Xavi’s team, who, being finalists in the Super Cup, had not disputed none of the previous rounds of the tournament. Jaén eliminated Álava 2-1 in the second round of the Cup.

For its part, Espanyol will visit the Toralín stadium to try to beat Ponferradina, a team in the Smartbank League and its next rival in the KO competition. Vicente Moreno’s team beat Palencia Cristo Atlético 1-2 in a game they had to go back an initial goal by Castilla y León.

One of the most morbid crossroads will be the replay of last year’s qualifier between Real Madrid and his executioner in competition last season, the Alcoyan. The draw for the Copa del Rey, held this afternoon in the Football City of Las Rozas, in Madrid, has been paired as follows:

  • Mancha Real – Athletic Club

  • Rayo Majalahonda – Atlético de Madrid

  • Acoyano – Real Madrid

  • Linares – Barça
  • Atlético Baleares – Celta de Vigo

  • Valladolid – Real Betis

  • Almeria – Elx

  • Mirandés – Rayo Vallecano

  • Cartagena – Valencia

  • Sporting de Gijón – Vila-real

  • Eibar – Majorca

  • Fuenlabrada – Cádiz

  • Leganés – Real Sociedad

  • Girona – Osasuna
  • Zaragoza – Seville

  • Ponferradina – Spanish
