MADRID (AP) - Defending champion Barcelona will play third-division Murcia in the last 32 of the Copa del Rey.

Thursday’s draw also pitted Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid against third-tier clubs. Madrid faces Fuenlabrada and Atletico plays Elche.

The first leg is in October.

Three-time defending champion Barcelona won last year’s tournament in a final against Alaves, which plays fellow top-tier side Getafe.

Top-tier clubs Celta Vigo and Eibar also meet, as do Deportivo La Coruna and Las Palmas, and Girona and Levante.

Sevilla plays third-division club Cartagena.
