MADRID, January 12 — King's Cup holders Barcelona, who have won the competition for the past three years and a record 29 times overall, were drawn against local rivals Espanyol in the quarter-finals today.

Real Madrid, who defeated Numancia 5-2 on aggregate to reach the last eight, will face Leganes, while Atletico Madrid are set to take on Sevilla in the prestigious Spanish contest.

Last season's runners-up Deportivo Alaves will need to overcome a strong Valencia side, who despite their recent dip in form are third in La Liga.

The first legs of the quarter-finals will take place on Wednesday and Thursday next week, with the return legs scheduled for a week later on Jan. 24 and Jan. 25. — Reuters
