The Copa del Rey match between Unionistas and Villarreal was interrupted by an electrical blackout at the Reina Sofía stadium in Salamanca. This caused the game to be suspended and delayed for almost 24 hours. The match was eventually completed the next day at 4:30 p.m., with the round of 16 draw being delayed until 6:30 p.m.

Despite the delay and the blackout, Unionistas managed to secure a victory and move on to the quarterfinals after an intense penalty shootout. The draw for the next round saw Unionistas facing FC Barcelona, setting the stage for an exciting match.
