The Real Sociedad-Osasuna finally moves to Thursday after having been set for Tuesday just an hour earlier.
In just one hour of margin, the Real Sociedad-Osasuna de Copa has moved from Tuesday to Thursday. In just six, Villarreal-Osasuna of the next day of LaLiga has gone from Friday to Saturday and from Saturday to Sunday. The adjustment of schedules of the round of 16 of Cup and the days of First before and after has brought head to the RFEF and LaLiga during this Friday. “It has been necessary to make bobbin lace,” they explain from the entity chaired by Luis Rubiales.
The focus of the conflict has been the situation in which the Royal Society was in the initial hours announced by the RFEF. At first, his Cup duel against Osasuna was set for Tuesday at 7:00 p.m., less than 48 hours after the end of his Sunday League match against Mallorca, to be played in the San Sebastian field to from 18.30 hours. In a nutshell, the team that trains Imanol Aguacil was going to have only one day, on Monday, to prepare his Cup showdown.
The San Sebastian club, at the outset, did not give credit to this situation and in fact did not give a validity letter to the designation, by not announcing it through its official channels. “You have looked with the schedules. Not even 48 hours of rest!”, Was the Twitter reaction of the captain of the Royal Society, Asier Illarramendi. At that time, from the RFEF explained that those responsible for setting schedules continued to meet at the federal headquarters.
Sunday, 6:30 p.m.
A few minutes later, LaLiga announced that Villarreal-Osasuna next weekend was going to be played on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. At noon, already anticipating the problems to square the schedules, he had announced the first time change of that game. From Friday at 9:00 p.m. it went to Saturday at 6:30 p.m.
That change will have allowed the Real-Osasuna Cup to be played on Wednesday, but the RFEF has decided to set it definitively (or so it seems) for Thursday at 9:00 p.m. In this way, the schedules of the round of 16 will be the following:
Tenerife-Athletic (9:00 p.m. Peninsular hours – Dazn)
Cultural Leonesa-Valencia (19.00 – Dazn)
Rayo-Villarreal (19.00 – Dazn)
