who play Sevilla.....

Next up SD Formentera....

12:11| Villarreal first name out and they play Toledo 

12:10 | I think we're about to have a draw....

12:08 | Plenty of grainy, mobile phone recorded images of players celebrating with the fans, hysteria, dressing room full of semi naked players ... you get the idea.... 

12:06 | The video is showing scenes from the midweek games as Formentera, Guijelo, Toledo etc celebrate their passage into the fourth round !

12:05 | Spain ...punctuality and all that !

12:03 | Arrrrrgh....Just about to go but first we've been invited to watch a short video .....Hang in there ; )  

12:01 | Don't forget the five 2B sides plus Formentera will draw one of the seven sides involved in European football (Madrid, Barça. Atleti, Sevilla, Celta, Athletic and Villarreal)

12:00 | Names of the 32 teams are being read out in their full official name ...

12:00 | We're live to the hall, the 32 balls are in the bowl and we're good to go ....

11:58 | The island based team have a ground that holds 1.000 fans, they play on astroturf and have 350 season ticket holders.... they will face on of Spain's big guns !

11:57 | All eyes in the media are on the small Balearic island of Formentera. The third division side are the first from that category in six year to make the fourth round draw. 

11:55 | Don't forget the dates for the fourth round....first leg of the fourth round will take place on November 30 with the return leg on December 21

11:54| At the moment we're in the usual preamble with the president of SEAT talking about the honour of his company being involved with the tournament. 

11:53 | However upsets can and do happen with the infamous  "Alcorconazo" in 2009 when lowly Alcorcon (then in 2B) beat Real Madrid 4-1 on aggregate.

11:50 | The lack of the "magic of the cup" is also much criticized about the format of the tournament with games being played over two legs and thus presenting the bigger teams with a better chance to overcome "slip-ups"

11:48 | Being the Spanish Copa del Rey and Spain having no national stadium, we can all look forward to the shenanigans that start in March about the venue for the final.   

11:45 | That means they could draw one of ...Real Madrid, Barça, Atletico, Sevilla, Celta, Villarreal or Athletic. 

11:45 | Don't forget the 2B sides (Racing, Cultural, Guijuelo, Toldeo, Hercules) plus 3a side Formentera will all draw a top flight side involved in European competition...  

11:40 | Barça are the current holders, winning the cup in the Calderon last May beating Sevilla 2-0 (AET) 

11:40 | The hall of fame of Copa del Rey winners reads: FC Barcelona 28 wins, Athletic 23 & Real Madrid cup winners on 19 occasions  

11:35 | We're live at Las Rozas for the build-up with the draw just 20 minutes off.

11:25 | The first leg of the fourth round will take place on November 30 with the return leg on December 21 

11:20 | SD Formentera are very much the "Cinderella" side in the draw being the only team from Spain's Tercera division  or fourth tier of Spanish football. Find out more about the Balearic side.

11:10 | The teams in this mornings draw are all 20 LaLiga sides plus AD Alcorcón, SD Formentera, UCAM Murcia, CD Guijuelo, Gimnastic de Tarragona, Real Racing Club, Cultural y Deportiva Leonesa, Hércules de Alicante, CD Toledo, Córdoba CF, SD Huesca, & Real Valladolid. 

10:45 | Without doubt the most exciting round of the competition as the top flight sides enter the fray and all eyes will be on the ties involving the smaller sides in the draw who are guaranteed to get a team involved in European competition.  

10:45 | Good morning and welcome to our live coverage of the fourth round (Round of 32) draw of this season's Copa del Rey
