Real Madrid & Atlético Madrid La Liga matches postponed

La Liga has postponed this weekend’s matches between Real Madrid and Athletic Club and Granada and Atlético Madrid.

Real Madrid and Atlético’s request for the postponement of their fixtures was granted by the Spanish Superior Sports Council on the basis that their South American players would not be available due to CONMEBOL’s decision to extend this latest round of international fixtures.

“In light of previous considerations, and using the attributes which are legally conferred on me I have resolved to grant the injunction requested by [La Liga president] Javier Tebas, representing the National Professional Football League (La Liga),” CSD president Jose Manuel Franco Pardo said in a statement on Wednesday.

The fixtures could be played on December 15 or December 22.
