Barça to face Sevilla in the Copa del Rey

The first leg of the quarter final tie will be in the Sánchez Pizjuán in a repeat of last season's final in the competition

Sevilla will be Barça’s opponents in the quarter finals of the Copa del Rey following the draw which took place on Friday at the Spanish Football Federation’s headquarters in Las Rozas on the outskirts of Madrid. The first leg will be played in the Sánchez-Pizjuán on 23 January at 9:30pm CET, with the return the following week on 29/30/31 January at Camp Nou.

Barça and the Andalusians’ last meeting came in the final of the competition last season. On that occasion Barça came out on top in the game that was played in Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium.

The quarter final this season will see a quick return to Camp Nou for Munir who left for Pablo Machín’s Sevilla in the January transfer window.

Barça and Sevilla have met 14 times in the Copa del Rey over the years under its various guises. In recent times Barça have a 4-1 lead over the Andalusian club with the most memorable clash being the 5-0 win in last season’s final, a game in which Andrés Iniesta scored his last ever goal as a blaugrana.
