Friday morning saw the fourth round draw for the Copa del Rey take place. Thirty-two teams remain in the competition for the King’s Cup, and while it is a competition that has lost its luster in recent years, there’s still a trophy up for grabs.

The remaining clubs are divvied up into four pots: one pot for teams in European competition (like Atletico Madrid), one pot for the rest of LaLiga, one for teams from the second division and one for teams in Segunda B or Tercera.

Atletico have been drawn with CD Guijuelo from that final pot. The Salamantino side play in Group 1 of Segunda Division B and are probably best known for these shirts, which pay homage to Salamanca’s famous cured ham.

Atletico have not advanced to the final since 2013, when it secured a famous win over Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu, but will give it another go this year after consecutive quarterfinal eliminations. The first leg will take place in Guijuelo on Nov. 30 with the Vicente Calderon hosting the return leg on Dec. 21.
