Match Preview

Barcelona will be aiming to advance to the last-16 stage of the Copa del Rey when they head to Andalusia on Wednesday evening to take on third-tier side Linares Deportivo. The visitors are the holders of the competition, having beaten Athletic Bilbao in last season's final, while they are the most successful team in the history of the tournament, lifting the trophy on 31 occasions.

Linares Deportivo, who operate in the third tier of Spanish football, were only founded in 2009 and have never operated at the top level, most recently playing in the fourth and third tiers. The Little Blues had only previously managed to reach the second round of the Copa del Rey in their previous three participations in the tournament, so this campaign already represents their best ever performance.

Indeed, Alberto Gonzalez's side beat Gimnastic Tarragona on penalties in the first round before recording a famous 2-1 victory over La Liga outfit Alaves in the second round in the middle of December. Linares Deportivo also recorded a 4-0 victory over Sevilla's second team in their last league contest, which left them in 14th position in their domestic table, boasting 22 points from their opening 17 matches.
