The Spanish FA has confirmed its proposal on how to award European places in case the current La Liga season cannot be finished.
There are growing fears that the 2019/20 campaign will not be completed due to the indefinite suspension of football in Spain caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Athletic Club Bilbao would also be rewarded with a Europa League place due to their participation in this season’s Copa del Rey final, as their opponents La Real are already guaranteed a European position due to the above criteria.
However, if the Copa final is played and Athletic lose, they would not be given the spot and instead Valencia – currently in 7th – would take the Europa League spot.
It is not yet clear what decision will be taken in terms of titles, promotions and relegations – but the Spanish FA need to communicate to UEFA what clubs would be entitled to perform in their competitions next season.
