Valencia Basket will be Barça’s first opponents in the Copa del Rey, which is being played in Las Palmas from February 19 to 22. And the side coached by Velimir Perasovic will be no pushovers, no matter what Barça’s 76-57 win at the Palau earlier this season might suggest.

If Barça make it through the round, their semi-final opponent will be the winner of the game between Unicaja Malaga and Bilbao Basket. On the other side of the draw, Real Madrid face CAI Zaragoza and Joventut Badalona take on the hosts, Herbalife Gran Canària.
