All the info you need to know on how and where to watch Cornellà host Barcelona at Camp Municipal de Cornellà in the Spanish Cup on 21 January at 21:00 CET.
Barcelona don't have to travel far for their debut in the Copa del Rey this season on Thursday, as it's a just a few kilometres down the road to get to Cornellà to play their round of 32 tie, but in terms of footballing competition, Ronald Koeman’s men will need to be at their best if they don’t want to experience any early surprises, such as the one that stunned Real Madrid in Alcoy on Wednesday night against third tier Alcoyano.
Barcelona are also going into this Copa del Rey tie with the bitter memories of their defeat to Athletic Club in the Spanish Super Cup final, where they were unable to secure their advantage in the final moments of the match and ended up losing in extra-time.

Given that defeat, the Blaugranes will be looking to a secure an easy win against Cornellà as being dumped out of the competition at this stage would likely have serious consequences for Koeman who is already looking wobbly. But the hosts will be no pushovers, hoping to make headlines around the world once again, as they did when they beat heavy favourites Atlético Madrid in the same venue in the last round
Aside from defender Adrián Jiménez, Cornellà do not have any major injury-related absentees heading into this game.
