Valencia travel to the Estadio municipal de Santo Domingo on Sunday to face Alcorcon in the Copa del Rey round of 32.

Having dispatched the lowly Terrassa and Yeclano with a combined score of 8-3 in the previous rounds, the Bats are in good form in the competition.

That's in stark contrast to their run in La Liga, which has yielded only four wins from 18 games, as Javi Garcia's side languish 14th in the standings.

However, they will be glad to know that Alcorcon are currently mired in troubles of their own.

The Potters are currently 20th in the Segunda Division and facing a long relegation scramble ahead of them.

In the cup so far, they narrowly beat Lealtad and Real Zaragoza in the previous rounds, winning 2-1 on both occasions.

They have caused quite a few surprises in the competition in the past and are now looking to reach the last-16 for the first time since the 2016-17 season.
