Ronald Koeman’s Barca enters the competition at the Round of 32 stage and the record 30-time winner is sure to take Cornella seriously after it earned a 1-0 win over Atletico on Thursday (AEDT).

Cornella’s Camp Municipal stadium is situated less than 10 miles away from Barcelona’s Camp Nou, making it a dream draw for the Segunda B side.
