Barcelona, Madrid kept apart in Cup draw

08 November 2013, 18:08

Madrid - Barcelona, Real Madrid and holders Atletico Madrid were all paired with third-tier opposition when the draw was made for the last 32 of Spain's Copa del Rey on Friday.

Barca will face Cartagena, while Real Madrid will come up against Olimpic of Xativa and Atletico will take on Barcelona-based outfit Sant Andreu.

There will be four ties between top-flight sides, including Malaga against Osasuna and Celta Vigo against Athletic Bilbao.

Each side's path through to the latter stages was decided too, and Barcelona cannot meet Madrid until the final, although Atletico could come up against their city rivals in the last four.

Atletico beat Real in their own Santiago Bernabeu stadium to win last season's final.
