The Andalusians struggled more than the result suggests against Eibar (4-1) with a brace from Buonanotte, and two more goals from Seba and Portillo ultimately doing the job. The side coached by Pellegrini thus progress into the last eight of the Copa del Rey. Provided Barça certify passage on Thursday against Cordoba, then they will be facing Malaga three times in just ten days, with a Liga fixture between the two clubs also on the menu.

That meeting is the first of the three, at La Rosaleda this Sunday at 21.00, the last game of the first half of the league programme. Cordoba permitting, they’ll meet again at the Camp Nou on January 16 and then back down south in Malaga on January 23 (the cup dates are not definitive).
