CONMEBOL extended their international schedule by a day till Friday which would mean that most of the clubs would be missing their top South American stars. Most top football leagues and clubs who are hard hit are unhappy with the decision of CONMEBOL to add an extra day.
Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid filed for the postponement of their games against Athletic Bilbao and Granada respectively but have now been postponed on request of the La Liga president Javier Tebas from the Spanish Superior Sports Council (CSD).
"In light of previous considerations, and using the attributes which are legally conferred on me I have resolved to grant the injunction requested by [La Liga president] Javier Tebas Medrano Lopez, representing the National Professional Football League (La Liga)," CSD president Jose Manuel Franco Pardo said in a statement on Wednesday.
Real Madrid would have been Eder Militao, Vinicius Jr and Federico Valverde while Atletico Madrid would have been missing Rodrigo de Paul, Angel Correa and Luis Suarez. Other clubs who failed to file for postponement would have some top players missing.
