Villarreal (barely) took care of business today against Puertollano, with Rossi scoring a 74th minute goal to allow the Madrigal faithful to take a breath. The next round of the Copa del Rey doesn't begin until the week of January 4, but Villarreal can salivate over their upcoming matchup: Valencia. Talk about a fiesty draw! It should be a lot of fun, especially if Villarreal have fully recovered their form.
Here are the rest of the matchups:
Alcorcon - Barcelona
Atletico Madrid - Sevilla
Rayo Vallecano - Hercules
Racing Santander - Celta Vigo
Recreativo de Huelva - Deportivo La Coruna
Osasuna - Mallorca
Malaga - Getafe
UPDATE: Added Wednesday's results. Nice to see at least 4 non-Primera sides in the 1/8 stage.
UPDATE 2: Added Thursday's result. Rayo-Hercules should be a fun tie. And it's nice to see another Valencian team advance.
