Our team makes its Copa del Rey debut this season in Barcelona against UE Sant Andreu on Tuesday, Oct. 30. The Last 32 match is to be played at the Narcís Sala Stadium at 9.30 p.m. CET.
Simeone's boys on Saturday earned a 2-0 win against Real Sociedad at the Wanda Metropolitano on LaLiga's Matchday 10. Atleti currently sit fourth in the LaLiga standings with 19 points, just two points behind leaders Barcelona.
UE Sant Andreu are the only remaining Tercera División team in the Copa del Rey. The Catalans have knocked out UE Cornellá (1-1, [2-3 on penalties), Gernika (1-0) and Calahorra (1-0). They sit fifth in their league standings.
The Catalan side are yet to lose at home this season (8W, 2D). Furthermore, they've not lost any of the last seven games and beat Sants 2-0 in their last match.
This won't be the first time our team faces UE Sant Andreu in the Copa del Rey's Round of 32. Atleti played against the Catalans in December 2013, earning a 4-0 win away from home and a 2-1 victory at the Vicente Calderón. Carroza, who still plays for the Catalan side, scored his team's goal at the Calderón.
Our team won the Copa del Rey for the last time in 2013, when we beat Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu.
