Yesterday, May 16th, the penultimate day of LaLiga Santander was played in Spain. After the completion of yesterday's matches, LaLiga Santander modified the vast majority of the matches of the last day, as it was informed in all the sports news in the country.
What is the reason for LaLiga’s end to be modified? It is Eurovision.
Eurovision forces to change calendar of LaLiga competition
On Sunday, May 23, all matches would start, except Levante-Cádiz, which would be played two days before. Several teams have gone from being played on Sunday to Saturday. Real Madrid-Villarreal keeps the date to play on Sunday, May 23, and the latter's coach is on a war footing because he will only have three days off before facing Manchester U. on Wednesday to play the final of the Europa League.
Villareal manager Fernando Roig made statements to the Spanish sports press last night in which he said that LaLiga Santander has no respect for his team for not changing the game the day before to be able to rest their players one more day before fighting for the title of the Europa League.
On the other hand, three games should have been played on Saturday, May 22: Eibar-Barcelona, Granada-Getafe, and Sevilla-Alavés. The new modification of the last day of the league has also affected them, now they will play on Sunday.
Sunday will be the day in which the Spanish teams that are fighting for the title of LaLiga Santander champions have to do their best and give their best. The fear that the audience could go down with Eurovision was decisive in making all these changes.
