Barcelona advanced to the next round of Copa del Rey last night, after a dominant display against Ceuta. The draws for this next round of the tournament were held today, and FC Barcelona have been pitted against Real Sociedad for their next match in the Copa del Rey quarter-finals.
Other major teams in La Liga, including Real Madrid, Sevilla, Valencia, Athletic Club, Atletico Madrid, and Osasuna have also advanced to the quarter-final stage for this year’s Copa del Rey.
FC Barcelona were exempted from the initial rounds of the Copa del Rey because of their league standings in the previous edition of La Liga and started their campaign with a match against Intercity in the round of 32, which they won 4-3 in extra time. This victory helped them advance to the round of 16, where they met AD Ceuta and after beating AD Ceuta last night, La Blaugrana advanced to the quarter-final stage of the King’s Cup.
