ANDhe Barcelona-Spanish of the day 15 of LaLiga Santander has all the ballots to be one of the games that closes the year.The calendar draw gave a Catalan derby for December 31date on which that day 15 of the League will be played.
Two weeks before, the World Cup in Qatar will have come to an end. From then on, domestic competition will be resumed with the change of year just around the corner. That day 15 will be played on December 31but predictably not all these matches will be played on the same day.
question of proximity
It will be necessary to distribute the meetings in several days, being Thursday 29 and Friday 30 two good options to share the day. In this way, for the 31st it is more than likely that the Catalan derby will remain. The fact that the teams do not have to travel makes this option the most reasonable.
Taking a look at the precedents, everything suggests that it will be so. In 19-20 there was already a Valencia-Villarreal in end of the year. A season later, in 2020-21, another Basque derby was played: the Athletic-Real Sociedad. Last season the chosen match was Valencia-Espanyol, two teams also likely to face each other on that date so marked by a matter of proximity.
