Valencia-Llagostera tie anticipated

Both Valencia and Llagostera are looking forward to their Copa del Rey clash, with Los Che being warned to show full respect.

The draw for the Last 32 of the competition was made today, pitting the Primera outfit against Segunda B side Llagostera.

“We know that this category of team always competes very well in the Cup and we cannot make excuses that the field is too small or has artificial grass,” reflected sporting director Braulio Vazquez. 

“We have to go out there to compete with respect, even if we think we are favourites.”

Meanwhile, the minnows’ Coach Oriol Alsina was delighted with the pairing made.

“The truth is that we are satisfied. Valencia are the third best team in Spain in the last 10 years and it can be said that they can rival anyone,” reflected Alsina after the draw, before commenting on the fact the side’s home leg may be moved to another ground.

“History is full of cases of a small team being able to beat a big one and we will not give up. If we play in our field we will not give up anything, even if it means that the council put in temporary seats for an extra 5,000 people. If we play in a nearby ground we could fill 10,000 seats, but we want to play in our stadium at home, 1,200 capacity, for our fans and for the common people.”
