Tito Vilanova Barça also followed suit and playing with a substitute team, spent well over a Alavés who knew their faces in the second leg at the Camp Nou but it was not enough to save him from elimination.

Both teams hold a historic meeting and in May 1972 received blanquiverdes Barca who needed to get the three points to win the league title.

But that afternoon prevented Fermin scoring a penalty in Barca's goal Cordoba Miguel Reina. For Cordoba was a historic victory for the Blaugrana while it was a tough loss, 40 years have passed and neither forgets what happened.


While the Catalans hold a good historical record in the Copa del Rey, the Andalusians have not been so lucky. The Cordoba FC has reached eleven times to the knockout stages of the competition but were eliminated in nine times, one of them by the same Barcelona in the 1963-64 season.

It expects a full house at the Archangel and although many teams would like to avoid to Lionel Messi, the Argentine blanquiverdes want to see the action, although their presence is not yet confirmed and Tito Vilanova may decide to rest most of their star players but not for David Villa who rested last weekend against Betis in La Liga.

Cesc Fabregas is one of the toughest low for the Blaugrana after the squad should leave the pitch at the Benito Villamarin and was known to have a muscle injury in his left leg that will have low 3 to 4 weeks. Tito wants to address the challenge seriously and although many of the headlines could have rest, this does not mean that the Catalans do not show their best weapons.

While President of Córdoba, Carlos Gonzalez, expected to arrive rival "with the worst that has" the Andalusian goalkeeper, Mikel Saizar, Messi expected to be one of the players who step on Wednesday at 20:00 pm Archangel in a match that promises plenty of local pressure.

The current odds at William Hill are Cordoba 10/1, Barcelona 2/7 and Draw 4/1.
