The FC Barcelona confronts against the Elche in the Martínez Valero on 24 January to the 16:15 hours. A party that in normal conditions would be one more in the fight of the culés by the title, but that in this occasion will have an importance added. This same day, the 24, celebrate the elections to the presidency of the group barcelonista, by what will be a day bustled for the blaugrana.

By this reason, the club requested to LaLiga​ that the meeting moved to the Saturday 23 January or, in case of not being possible, to the Monday 25. The Catalans did not want that the crash against the Valencians affected to the comicios, since they understand that in case to contest the duel, during this time band the partners would not attend to vote. This, taking into account the moment of pandemia that is living , could be a problem.

That the voters accumulate in other schedules of the day could cause agglomerations no wished and that they could put in risk the health of all the world. For this reason, the culés urged to the patronal to play another day, something that as 'Sportive World' from the Spanish championship have refused. LaLiga Has not wanted to know at all of the request of the Barça and has left clear that the commitment does not move of the Sunday 24.

This is something that from the own Barcelona do not comprise, since the barcelonistas play his previous split the Wednesday 20. In other words in case to have to play the 23 there would be a margin of three days of rest, more than sufficient taking into account how is being the calendar this campaign. In spite of this, the organism chaired by Javier Thebes has not accepted the change of date.

Neither it has wanted LaLiga that play a Monday, although the Barça would have had other three days of rest. In case to happen of the dieciseisavos of Glass of the King on 20 January, the blaugrana would play the Thursday 28 the eighth. In other words there would be spare time to rest and prepare this crash. The problem for the patronal, perhaps, has been that the rival of the Barcelona have less time of rest by fault of this change.

The elections of the Barça could peligrar by the coronavirus

It will be necessary to see if the dispute of the meeting in front of the Elche finishes being a problem, since in Catalonia the pandemia is right now descontrolada. The Generalitat has decreed a municipal confinement of the 7 to 17 January to struggle against the illness and fears that this can expand if the situation epidemiológica does not improve. In this case, the celebration of the elections peligraría and could have to change of day.
