Sooo good morning everyone! The Copa del Rey don’t put the brakes on. The first round of the competition ended yesterday and left us 56 teams who will look for a rival in this second round through the draw that will take place at 12: 00h at Luis Aragonés Room, inside of Las Rozas Football City. Let’s get started!
Live Copa del Rey draw
12.17 Luis García Plaza leaves, the first innocent hand of the draw
“It is a very attractive format for the smaller teams,” commented the Mallorca coach, who suffered a great deal to advance to the next round.
12.15 The draw for the second round of the Copa del Rey begins
12.10 One-time edition for spectators
We take advantage of the delay of the broadcast to comment that this Copa del Rey spreads the news that all the games will be televised. Mediaset, DAZN and Footers will be in charge of broadcasting this competition.
12.00 The draw starts shortly!
It is time and the draw is somewhat late, but we will not have the live broadcast at all.
11.50 No scares for the First teams
No First Division team of the 16 that have participated in the first round (they were not Real Madrid, Atleti, Barcelona or Athletic) has come out badly. In general, it was a first match with few surprises, something strange if we take into account that in previous editions we always saw a great out. To highlight is the victory of him Andratx of Second RFEF, that gave the bell in front of the Oviedo. No team from Third RFEF has managed to reach the next round
11.43 Matching criteria
In this draw, the teams of lower categories will be paired (Second RFEF and First RFEF) with the classified teams of First and Second Division. Therefore, there can be no clashes between First-class teams in this tie.
11.40 Where to see the draw?
