They now face a Cordoba side who beat Ponferradina 2-1 in the semi-finals (3-1 on aggregate) to book a final date with Barca Atletic.

The first leg is scheduled for the weekend of the Sunday, 16th June at the Estadi Johan Cruyff and the second at El Arcángel a week later.

It’s a tough match-up for Barca Atletic as they come up against a side that finished second in Group 2 and were in La Liga as recently as the 2014-15 season.

Barcelona Atletic will be able to welcome Mikayil Faye back for the games after he missed the semi-final clash after being called up by Senegal.
