The Copa del Rey finished his round of 32 phase and there were few surprises in this round, such as the elimination of the team of Peruvian midfielder Renato Tapia, Celta de Vigo, against Atlético Baleares, which plays in the third division. One of the teams classified for the last 16 has been the Cadiz that eliminated Fuenlabrada 1-0.
The technical director, Álvaro Cervera, Of the group that usually wears yellow, he commented post-match about the format of the contest and showed his total disagreement.
“The draws are not pure, normally they are played at the home of the weakest opponent without being a roundtrip. That already, from my point of view, is not fair “ indicated the DT.
“This competition is designed so that in the end Real Madrid, Barcelona or Atlético, who are the best, arrive. And so that modest teams can make a box office, which I think is well designed “ said the Equatorial Guinea-born strategist.
“We are a bit on the way until Fuenlabrada or a similar team catches you one day, wins you and becomes national news. Or Barcelona or Madrid take you and eliminate you”Added Cervera, according to Marca.
The meringues beat Alcoyano 1-3, and took their revenge, since in the previous edition the modest third-rate team had eliminated them.
For their part, the Catalans also won their match. In the official return of Dani Alves, the Catalans beat the modest Linares by 1-2.
