The Copa del Rey draw was made earlier today.

Villarreal is pitted against Elche.

First leg at El Madrigal : 6/7/8 December

Second leg at Martinez Valero : 18th December. which is a wednesday night and that means a lot of our fans wont be able to make that trip to Elche. LFP and RFEF never cease to amaze.

If we get by the 'Ilicitanos' we get to play the winner of Algeciras - Real Sociedad in the round of 16. If we get past the round of 16 we get to play the winner of block of Las Palmas - Almeria & Racing - Sevilla in the quarter-finals. If we break our Copa record and go beyond that, we will likely face FC Barcelona in the semfinals.

The full draw can be seen here.

Overall, a good draw considering that we have avoided the top 3 until the semifinals.

Let us know your thoughts about the draw.
