Spain: Villarreal players arrive in Valdebebas for match in which Real Madrid could win La Liga

Spain, Madrid
July 16, 2020 at 18:15 GMT -00:00 · Published

Villarreal buses arrived at the Real Madrid training complex in Valdebebas on Thursday, ahead of the match in which Real Madrid could be declared La Liga champion.

If they win, the team coached by Zinedine Zidane will clinch its 34th league title with two games left in the season. At the moment they are four points ahead of FC Barcelona and need two more to become champions, so a draw would leave them on the brink of the title.

On Wednesday evening, the white jersey of the first team with the number 34, in reference to the number of league titles, was put on sale on the club's official website for 109.95 euros, although the club removed it when they realised of the mistake.

The match will start at 21:00 local time (19:00 GMT) at the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium.

The Madrid City Council has put up fences in Cibeles in case Madrid wins the title, despite the fact that the club has assured that the players will not be there to celebrate. Authorities have also asked the fans to comply with the regulations established to avoid the further spread of COVID-19, by avoiding gatherings.
