We find out this Wednesday our second Copa del Rey opponents this season. As usual, all of them will be divided into different pots according to the category in which they compete. A total of five pots corresponding to the top five leagues in Spain will be drawn.
The only three remaining teams from the Tercera RFEF - Arosa SC, Atlético Astorga and Atzeneta UE - will be paired with three teams from LaLiga EA Sports as their opponents, and will have home advantage. The eleven teams from the Segunda RFEF pool will then face the same number of teams from the top flight. The remaining LaLiga clubs will be paired with a team from the Primera RFEF. Therefore, our opponents will be from either the Tercera RFEF, Segunda RFEF or even Primera RFEF, where there are historic teams such as Málaga CF, Deportivo de la Coruña or CD Castellón.
Once all 15 LaLiga EA Sports teams have opponents, there will be nine remaining Primera RFEF teams to be drawn against the same number of LaLiga Hypermotion teams. Finally, the six remaining clubs from the second tier will play each other, with the team whose ball is drawn first playing the home game. The draw will begin at 13:00 CEST at Ciudad del Fútbol in Las Rozas. These are the 56 qualified teams in their corresponding pots:
