Spanish football body plan to give Champions League go-signal to top 4
The Spanish Football Association named the four clubs they plan to see action in the Champions League next term, a move seen to spark controversy.
If the La Liga is not completed this season, the Spanish football’s governing body said they are proposing that Top 4 squads Barcelona, Real Madrid, Sevilla and Real Sociedad be given the go-signal to compete in European football next season.
But in a report by Spanish publication Marca, Getafe and Atletico Madrid would be angered by the said plan. No complaint has been reported so far as to the inclusion of Barcelona and Real Madrid.
Should the proposal pushes through, Getafe would miss a first-ever Champions League spot on goals scored despite having a better head-to-head record with Real Sociedad.
In that case, Getafe and Atletico Madrid would be relegated to the Europa League.
No decision has been arrived at as to how the Spanish season will end.
