The Spanish football season resumes after the festive period with the last 16 of the Copa del Rey first up. Second-tier Numancia stunned Málaga in the previous round to set up a clash against European Champions Real Madrid, who have not won the cup since 2013-14. The two-legged nature of the tie works against the Segunda side, who will look to at least put the wind up the Liga heavyweights at home to give themselves a chance of a shock result at the Bernabéu.
