Ronald Koeman will surely go into the fixture with a lot of caution as Cornella has been hailed as a giant killer this season after knocking out Atletico Madrid in the previous round. Atletico Madrid manager, Diego Simeone was full of praise for the third-tier team.

Simeone said: “They competed well and they played the game they wanted to play, and then kept it like that. They had intensity and you really just have to congratulate them. When a rival outperforms you, you just have to congratulate them.”
