Copa del Rey draw

Barcelona are going to have to pull out all the stops if they are to repeat last season's Spanish cup success! Pep Guardiola's side have been drawn against Sevilla in the last sixteen, and if they get through that they will have to face the winners of a tie between Valencia and Deportivo. And if they make it to the semi-finals, they will probably have to play either Atlético Madrid or Villarreal, Recreativo and Celta permitting. The other side of the draw though is free of the biggest names, the ties being Rayo Vallecano v Mallorca, Málaga v Getafe, Alcorcón v Racing and Hércules v Osasuna. Could we see Alcorcón in the final?!? Fixtures will be played over two legs in January and February. (01.12.09)
