The Spanish football federation (RFEF) and the Spain professional league (LFP) have been embroiled in an ongoing dispute over new regulations brought in to equally distribute TV revenue. It led to the La Liga season being suspended by the RFEF, but the LFP are looking at preventing the move, reports Sky
The Spanish La Liga season is coming to a close, with three games left for the sides in the top-flight. The title race is between Barcelona and Real Madrid, with the Catalan giants currently two points clear. There’s a battle for the top-four, with Sevilla still in with a shout to finish ahead of fourth-placed Valencia. Champions League football is up for grabs for the two sides, and the three remaining games should decide who finish fourth.
As for the relegation battle, there are four sides who can realistically still finish in the drop zone, so there’s plenty to play for. The LFP want a complete reversal in the suspension, as they feel the RFEF have completely dishonoured the league due to their defiance at the new regulations. They made a statement signalling their intent to fight the suspension.
“The LFP wishes to reiterate the importance of the royal decree approved by the Spanish government and emphasise its importance as an historic milestone for Spanish soccer,” the LFP said.
