New match times anger Madrid

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 4,417

As if there wasn't enough controversy with VAR, the release of the new match times, with less than 72 hours rest for Madrid between the matches against Getafe and Athletic Bilbao, a source of new unrest.

In Barcelona, they are fuming about the refereeing decisions at the Reale Arena.  They understand that they helped Real Madrid. Los Blancos, unconnected with that, also have something to complain about and according to 'Marca', they have already done so to the league after finding out that they will hardly have any rest between the games against Getafe and Athletic.

The body made the matchday times for games 33 and 34 known. Zidane's men will play on Thursday 2nd July at 22:00 and Sunday 5th July at 14:00, so 62 hours will have passed from the end of the match and the start of the next.

It's not just because of that the Madrid feel aggrieved, also because Barcelona will have more rest, almost 5 days, from the visit of Atlético to the Camp Nou (Tuesday at 22:00) and their trip to Villarreal (Sunday at 22:00).

The same sources even speak about when they saw the publication of the times there was an error. But it wasn't so, so Zidane's side, after finishing their match against Getafe late at night, will have to go to Bilbao the next day.

Any knock during the match, like what happened to Ramos against Real Sociedad, could mean any player may not recover in time.

On the other hand, matchday 34 will also be the first time since the restart that Real Madrid will play before Barcelona, something that has also gone down badly at the Bernabéu offices.
