Atlético Madrid’s recent Copa del Rey record is very poor, looking to avoid another embarrassing early exit here.
In 2019, Cultural y Deportiva Leonesa dumped Atleti out of this competition before, 12 months later, they were beaten by fellow-minnows Cornellà.
More concerning for Diego Simeone is the fact his team come into this one in horrendous form.
On Wednesday night, los Colchoneros were beaten again, this time 1-0 by Mallorca at Son Moix.
So, Atlético have taken just one point from their last three league games, also beaten at Cádiz before drawing with ten-man Espanyol.
In this period, they’ve also finished rock bottom of their Champions League group.
All of this means Almazán will believe a humungous upset is on.
They ply their trade in Tercera Federación group 8, part of Spain’s fifth-tier, and are currently mid-table.
This is the first time ever Almazán are competing in the first round, so will they mark the occasion by defeating Atlético at Nuevo Estadio Los Pajaritos?
