Friday football yes, Monday football no

So says the judge.

News just now—a Spanish judge appointed to rule on the question of whether La Liga matches can be played on Fridays and Mondays has decided....YES to Fridays, NO to Mondays.

So, the season starts on Friday as scheduled with Athletic Bilbao hosting Barcelona; the Monday matches (Mallorca-Eibar; Betis-Valladolid) have to be rescheduled, as does the Elche-Fuenlabrada match in the Segunda.

The RFEF (Spanish FA) have come out swinging, claiming a ‘victory’ and demanding that ‘megalomaniac’ Javier Tebas resign as head of La Liga. You’ll remember the RFEF also opposed Sr. Tebas’s plan to play a regular-season match in the USA, and that didn’t happen.
