👥 Our first #CopaDelRey line-up of the season!
— Atlético de Madrid (@atletienglish) December 16, 2020
Cardassar play in the Tercera Division Group 11, which is the third league in Spain. Cardassar have made a poor start to this current Tercera Division campaign as they only sit 7th in the standings with just eight points after eight rounds. They have only won one in eight league games so far this season and are currently the division’s draw specialists with five stalemates to their name. At home, Cardassar managed to win just once in five competitive games, which was actually a penalty shootout victory over Epila in the first round of this Copa del Rey campaign.
Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid were on an 11 game unbeaten streak across all competitions prior to their 2-0 away loss at city rivals Real Madrid last weekend. However, Los Colchoneros still sit second in La Liga table tied on 26 points with current leaders Real Sociedad and third-place Real Madrid, but with two games in hand. In addition, they managed to qualify from their Champions League group and they will now face the English side Chelsea in the round of 16. This midweek game should be a formality for Simeone’s men, but we all remember last year’s Copa del Rey campaign when they were knocked out by Cultural Leonesa in the round of 32.
Can Cardassar produce a huge surprise here? Or will Atletico Madrid secure a comfortable victory?
