Will Villarreal keep alive their hopes of a first-ever Copa del Rey Final appearance?
Despite being European regulars for two decades now, el Submarino Amarillo have only ever reached the semi-finals of this competition once, ousted by Barcelona in 2015.
So far this season, Villarreal have demolished Santa Amalia 9-0, their biggest-ever victory, before needing extra time to overcome Guijuelo.
Arnaut Danjuma the match-winner in the latter.
In La Liga, Quique Setién’s team came from behind to win the Derbi de la Comunitat on New Year’s Eve.
Samuel Chukwueze equalising against Valencia, before Juan Foyth bagged a late winner at Estadio de la Cerámica.
This propelled Villarreal up to seventh in the table, just three points below the Champions League spots.
As for hosts Cartagena, since being founded just 27 years ago, they’ve never gone beyond this stage of the Copa del Rey.
Luis Carrión’s team have so far overcome Alfaro and Alcorcón in this year’s competition, the latter on penalties.
Cartagena currently sit eighth in the Segunda División and, for context, were beaten 1-0 by Villarreal’s B team just last month.
So, an away victory seems likely at Estadio Cartagonova.
