Atlético Madrid have been drawn against third-tier side Cornellà in the second round of the 2020/21 Copa del Rey.

Diego Simeone's men will head to Catalonia for the match on 6 January, just three days after they face Alavés in LaLiga.

Atleti beat Cardassar 3-0 in the previous round to reach this stage, at which teams from the top flight cannot yet be drawn against each other.

Spanish Super Cup teams get Copa del Rey bye until third round

Barcelona, Real Madrid, Athletic Club and Real Sociedad were all given byes to the next round as they will be competing in the Spanish Super Cup early next month.

Valencia will face Yeclano, Sevilla take on Linares and Real Betis will play Mutilvera.

Eibar head to Las Rozas, Villarreal will meet Zamora or Logroñés and Real Valladolid must take on Marbella.

Oviedo, meanwhile, must make a journey of more than 983 kilometres to face Málaga.
