Next Match: away to Malaga, December 14
Luis Garcia has urged his team to not be complacent during their Copa del Rey match against Girona, who are currently hovering above the relegation zone in the Segunda Division. "In theory, because we are in the Primera Division, we should be a level above them, but we respect them, admire them and we will be humble," Garcia told a press conference. The winner of the tie is likely to face Barcelona in the next round, as long as Gerardo Martino's side see off Cartagena. "Whoever gets through, in theory, will play Barcelona and that's a big incentive," added Garcia. "But we have to think about Girona and how we can beat them and write a new page in our history."
