1 1 League matchday, 17 Champions League matches, 27 Europa League matches and … one of Copa del Rey, that few seem to ask or worry about. The reality is not like that, since at the summit of the Palacio de Viana on Saturday the issue of how and when of the Copa del Rey was discussed, but the matter has remained in the background.
The three-way agreement between the Superior Sports Council (CSD), the Federation (RFEF) and LaLiga also dealt with the issue of the Cup final and the three parties reached an agreement that that party must to play with you are public, so it has been decided that the Cup final of this season can be played one week before the dispute of the final of the next edition, in a clear and difficult attempt that the meeting between Athletic and Real Sociedad are disputed in a packed stadium, since today programming it under this premise is impossible.
Even, on the Board of Directors that the Federation held last Monday, the matter was discussed and although it does not appear in the document signed by the CSD, RFEF and LaLiga, it is assumed that this is the r. Nobody in the federative Board objected some to the delay in the celebration of the match.
As for the Spanish Super Cup, which to this day will continue to be held in Saudi Arabia in next January, not undergo any change, since that both Athletic and Real Sociedad are classified and will be able to contest it without problem without knowing who the champion is.
As for the European position to which the Cup final entitles and waiting for UEFA applies the definitive criteria in the event that a competition cannot be completed, the RFEF made the possible assumptions: if the two clubs are in the top 6 positions and therefore ranked seventh; if one of the two were classified among the first six, the other finalist will go; and if neither of the two finalists were in the top six, it would be the one with the best position in the league competition.
