Barça to face Benidorm in Cup


FC Barcelona have been drawn to face Benidorm in their first game in this year’s Copa del Rey. They play away on October 29, and the return will be on November 12 at the Camp Nou.

The draw was held this Friday in Las Rozas for the round of 32 of the Copa del Rey. Pep Guardiola’s side was drawn to play Benidorm, currently in Second Division B. The first leg will be played in Alicante on October 29, and the return will be on November 12 at the Camp Nou.

Second meeting

This is not the first time Barça and Benidorm have met, for in the 1998/99 cup they met in the round of sixteen, when Barça won 0-1 in the first leg, and then won 3-0 away in the return.

Barça B have won two, drawn one and lost three at home, while their away trips have seen two defeats and four wins for Benidorm.

Technical secretary Paco Martínez went to the draw in representation of FC Barcelona and said the fact that there have been previous meetings with Benidorm meant “we know the opposition well and Guardiola will be able to put together a very competitive team”.
