LaLiga: Real Madrid, Atletico, Barcelona title-deciding games moved

The kick-offs for the title-deciding final round of fixtures in LaLiga has been changed for the third time within 12 hours.

This follows a row over Villarreal’s preparation time for the Europa League final against Manchester United.

Also, there are concerns over a clash with the Eurovision Song Contest.

Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid both stand a chance of being crowned champions this weekened.

Diego Simeone’s side are two points clear at the top and need a win at Real Valladolid to clinch the title, while Madrid host Villarreal.

Those crucial games, as well as others involving the race for European places and the relegation battle, were originally scheduled for Sunday evening.

The first fixture change had seen Barcelona’s match at Eibar switched back to Sunday, when the league realised the result could still impact which other teams would go down.

LaLiga also brought forward seven decisive games, including Valladolid v Atletico and Madrid v Villarreal, to Saturday at 6pm.
