La Liga clubs are set to be back on the pitch for Sunday’s clash with Atletico Madrid as part of the biggest match of the season.
This will be the biggest game of the Liga, with Atleti the first to face the reigning Champions League champions in a final game in the league since 2007.
The game will kick off at 17:00 GMT (18:00 CET) on Sunday at the Estadio Vicente Calderon, the same time as Real Madrid’s clash at the Santiago Bernabeu.
It will be played in front of over 7,000 fans at the Bernabeue and there are expected to be around 5,000 seats available for the match.
“La Liga is a club where fans can expect a very different experience from their traditional games,” La Liga match director Carlos Rulli said.
With a lot of excitement around the matches on Saturday and Sunday, it’s no surprise that La Liga is taking the match to a new level.
In order to accommodate the extra capacity of the stadium, La Liga are running the match at a much higher capacity of 2,500.
And there are also plans to expand the pitch to 5,500, which will give the game a much larger atmosphere.
There are also two extra teams on the sidelines and the club is looking at adding additional players to the pitch.
La Liga has been the best league in Europe for a long time, with La Liga and the Champions League regularly being played on different pitches in the same stadium.
That means the atmosphere is always going to be huge, and fans will be able to experience a match that they would never get to experience on a regular basis.
According to the La Liga website, this is the fourth-biggest match of La Liga’s history, with the last meeting between Atletico and Barcelona being played at the Calderon in 2009.
