Atlético to face Celta Vigo in Copa del Rey quarter-final

Rojiblancos handed tough trip to Balaídos in last eight of the King's Cup

Atletico Madrid will need to go through Celta if they are to reach the semi finals of this season’s Copa del Rey.

In the draw made at midday today, Atleti were the last team picked and will travel to Vigo to take on Celta in the first leg on the 20th January.

After losing 2-0 at Balaidos last season, Atleti rebounded with a 2-0 victory over Celta just last weekend. The return leg at the Vicente Calderon will be played on the 27th January.

If Atleti make it through to the next round of the King’s Cup, they could be in for a tough semi final after Valencia, Sevilla and Barcelona were all kept apart in the quarter finals.

Valencia take on Las Palmas, Sevilla face CD Mirandés whilst Barcelona must overcome Athletic in a repeat of last season’s final.
