La Liga: Barcelona’s match at Sevilla, Villarreal vs Alaves postponed after an appeal by Spanish football: Spain’s High Council for Sports (CSD) has postponed Barcelona’s game at Sevilla and Villarreal vs Alaves on Saturday following an appeal by the Spanish football league, La Liga.
The league had asked the Spanish FA (RFEF) to postpone the matches given the extended South American World Cup qualifying window put in place by FIFA to compensate for COVID-19 postponements this year.
This meant that a number of players would not return to their clubs until Friday, 24 hours before they were due to play in La Liga matches.
As both Barca and Villarreal are in Champions League action on Tuesday, they were required to play their domestic fixtures on Saturday.
