Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona put in a wrap during the first turn of Laliga that left him, far to litigate for revalidating the title, in the fight for ensuring the third square, with the Athletic of Madrid. By a few weeks, the fight by LaLiga seemed thing of two, between Real Madrid and Girona, but the last results have given back to the Catalans to the second position of the championship, waiting for what happen in Montilivi this Monday from the 21:00 hours (9:00 PM CET)

The ones of Xavi Hernández were not in the second square from the eighth day. They had started said date with a suffered victory against the Seville and depended on what happened in the clash between Girona and Madrid, that carried the ones of Carlo Ancelotti to recover the leadership and displace to the Catalans. From this moment, the Barça was floating between the third and fourth position, but the two defeats followed of the gerundenses has given them back to the scene... And it is a 'break' for the Real Spanish Federation of Football (RFEF).

And it is that in this stretch 'final' of LaLiga, with alone twelve days for contesting , begin to define the qualifiers to the Supercopa of Spain of 2025. For the tournament, that will contest in Saudi Arabia, will assist four teams: The winner of League and the team that occupy the second position, as well as the winner and finalist of the Glass of Rey. The culés do not have options to classify through the tournament of the 'KO' (remain 'alive' Athletic, Atleti, Mallorca and Real Sociedad)and the only road to access is remaining like champion or runner-up of the domestic tournament.

The RFEF 'wait' to the Barça

For the club is a need by what represents economically, but also is it for the RFEF. One of the big appeals of the Supercopa in Saudi Arabia is the presence of the two 'big' of Spain, Real Madrid and Barça. They are the teams that move masses in the Half Orient and have the participation of both supposes a rain of income, as it has happened in these last years.

If one of the two remains without participating, the organisers 'leave' to pay five million euros, as it establishes in the agreement. They would remain in 35 millions, by what no only from the City Condal are expecting to know if have options or no to surpass to the Girona definitively in the classification. Still they remain 12 days for contesting and the Barcelona know that there is a lot at stake.
