In the Premier League and among most leagues in Europe, the last matchday includes all the teams in the league playing on the same day at the same time. Last season in La Liga, all the teams played on the same day, June 4th, on a Sunday. They did not play at the same time since the league was already resolved, as Barca won the league a few weeks before the last matchday.

Real Madrid wants to resolve the league title soon in order to change the date of their last matchday against Real Betis at home in the Santiago Bernabeu. Real Madrid is scheduled to take on Real Betis on Sunday, May 26. Real Madrid would like the game to be played on Saturday, May 25th, instead to make room for a big show the Bernabeu will host that includes a world-known singer.
