Lorca and Cultural Leonesa battled it out together in the second tier of Spanish football last year, but are now separated in lower divisions respectively coming into the third round of 2018/19 Copa del Rey tie.

Financial issues dropped El Deportiva down to the fourth class, while Leonesa were regularly relegated to Segunda B Division after a dreadful campaign last season. However, they look determined to make it just a one-year loan in the third class based on a strong kick off to the new campaign. La Cultu won three straight league games to climb up to the fourth place in their division. Victor Cea’s troops shipped just one goal along the way and they will no doubts come into this Lorca tie as favourites to advance to the last 32 round of the competition.
