Eight-time Copa del Rey winners Valencia travel to Murcia on Wednesday to take on Segunda Division side Cartagena in the competition’s round of 32 (3pm kick-off, UK time).
Los Che may consider themselves a tad fortunate to be in this phase of the Copa del Rey after requiring extra time to see off Arenteiro in the second round, but a win is a win and Jose Bordalas will be eyeing up further progression in this competition to enhance his reputation at Mestalla.

Cartagena team news
Luis Carrion’s Efese are pushing hard for the promotion places in the Spanish second tier so he may be tempted to rotate here ahead of a crucial showdown with Huesca this weekend. Sergio Tejera and Pablo Claveria are both expected to return here so could come straight into Carrion’s starting line-up, while Andy Kawaya remains out of action. It was an unfamiliar XI in the previous round against Castellon, but given the opposition on Wednesday, Carrion may mix fringe players who are eyeing up minutes in domestic cup competitions, with first-teamers.
Cartagena predicted XI: Prior; Simon, Vazquez, Andujar, Silva; Tejera, Claveria, Gallar, Okazaki, Gil; Castro.
Valencia team news
Thierry Correia remains the only major injury concern for the visitors, and Bordalas himself will likely tinker with his personnel with one eye on this weekend’s visit to current La Liga leaders Real Madrid. The likes of Yunus Musah and Cesar Tarrega got rare starts in the previous two rounds and will likely be afforded similar treatment here.
Valencia predicted XI: Mamardashvili; Foulquier, Tarrega, Diakhaby, Gaya; Musah, Racic, Wass, Cheryshev; Gomez, Andre.
Scoreline prediction: Cartagena 0-2 Valencia
