NEWS | 08/01/2021The knockout match played over one game will take place on 20th January at 9pm at the El Collao Municipal Stadium.
It will be the third time the two sides clash in the Copa del Rey. In the two previous encounters (1946 and 2012), Real Madrid came through to make the next round. El Alcoyano arrive in the Round 32 having beaten Laredo (4-1) and Huesca (2-1). Vicente Parras is currently in his second season in the dugout for the team who currently sit in fourth place in the Segunda B Grupo III, with 12 points. Juanan, El Ghezouani and Jony Ñíguez have each netted twice as the team's top scorers.
Butragueño: “We're in for a very tough game in Alcoy”
“We're headed to Alcoy for a very tough clash and we know how difficult it will be. Taking on Real Madrid always brings a festival atmosphere and for sides outside the Primera División who get this chance every now and then, of course it's a special game. They will be really up for it and will want to share a historic day with their fans. They're a highly competitive side and we'll have to be aware of the weather too. We're going to Alcoy with the utmost respect".
"The Copa is so exciting because everything is decided inside 90 minutes, which adds to the danger. So we'll have to be completely focused from the off, with the hunger to make it back into the draw for the last-sixteen. This is a beautiful competition, especially for the players. It's true that the format makes interesting results for the fans absolutely possible and I'd like to congratulate every team in the draw at this stage".
"We had an intense month in December and the team did a fantastic job but there's no let-up. Now we've got the LaLiga game against Osasuna, the Spanish Super Cup, with a title to play for that was hugely important for us last year, then there's the Copa del Rey".
Providing they come through this round, Zidane's men would play their Round of 16 clash the following week. The quarter finals take place on 3 February and the semifinals are scheduled for 10 February and 3 March. The final is planned for 17 April at La Cartuja.
