Atlético-Athletic is suspended without a date, like three Second Division matches, and Elche-Valencia moves to Monday
The female Barça, isolated in a hotel in Madrid, does not understand that they were forced to travel to the capital and then the clash was suspended
He soccer is not being oblivious to the chaos that ‘Filomena’ it is causing in Spain and especially in Madrid. Five First and Second matches have been postponed, including the Athletic-Athletic which was to be played this afternoon from 4.15pm. Also the female league is suffering from the chaos generated by snow storm, with the Barça outraged and bewildered after being forced to travel to Madrid to, once there, learn of the suspension of his duel with Madrid CFF.
Atlético will add one more to its list of pending matches after the League confirms the postponement sine die of its match against Athletic in the Metropolitan Wanda. The set of Marcelino Garcia Toral He flew to the capital on Friday afternoon, but due to weather conditions the plane flew over several times Playing cards without being able to give him a clue and he had to return to Bilbao.
The idea was to fly again this Saturday, but the closure of the airport made it impossible. Difficulties were also foreseen for Atlético’s own squad and the refereeing team to reach the stadium, in this case due to the bad road conditions in the zone. Thus, the League asked the Competition Committee to suspend the match, arguing in addition to the closure of Barajas “the impossibility of having the field in optimal conditions“.
“The date of dispute of the meeting will be communicated in the next days and it will have to be one of the available dates of the competition calendar”, added the organism. This same Saturday it has also been announced that the Elche-Getafe Sunday was postponed until Monday at 7:00 p.m. due to the difficulties of José Bordalás’ team to travel to Martínez Valero, but in the case of Atlético-Athletic there was no such possibility. Simeone’s men will face Sevilla on Tuesday (match postponed on the first day), so we will have to wait for Athletic to be eliminated in the Cup (the colchoneros already did it against Cornellà) to find a gap in the calendar .
In the second Division, three clashes with Madrid teams will not be played this Sunday either: Mirandés-Rayo Vallecano, Alcorcón-Albacete and Leganés-Almeria. The new dates are also yet to be decided.
Valencia-Valladolid and Osasuna-R. Madrid
Another game that may be in the air is the Valladolid-Valencia Sunday. In Pucela they work to have the grass of Zorrilla, known not on a whim as the stage of pneumonia. Valencia announced that it was advancing its travel plan and would fly this Saturday, but the League has finally recommended that it do so on the same Sunday, when conditions should be more benign.
Something similar has happened with the Osasuna-Real Madrid of this Saturday. The white team advanced their routine and flew on Friday night, although the expedition was held for two hours on the plane waiting to take off, something that finally happened at 11 at night. The time of the game, 9:00 p.m., will not be the best considering the circumstances, since in addition The snowfall is expected to intensify in Pamplona from 7:00 p.m., but for the moment everything indicates that it can be played. A team of forty people has cleared the snow that had accumulated in the last hours on the lawn and they are moving the heat lamps through the different areas of the field so that it remains in good condition.
Indignation in the female Barça
Who is sure that he will not play this Saturday is the Barça Women, which is found isolated in a hotel in Madrid after having to travel to the capital and finally having his match against the Madrid CFF scheduled at 12.30 pm at the Old Dog Track. “You couldn’t tell …”, his coach tweeted wryly, Lluís Cortés.

Several players were outraged by having to travel despite the fact that everything indicated that what happened would happen. “They would think … these girls from Barcelona who go to see Filomena that if not for another 12 years they won’t be able to see her up close. Well, no, we don’t understand how we were allowed to travel,” wrote an angry Jenni Beautiful.

As a Norwegian I cannot understand how the Spanish federation felt it would be safe to send a team traveling up the mountain when the weather forecast shows a yellow and orange danger level, due to the storm passing through central Spain.
