Given the seriousness of the situation, Rayo's match against Atlético on the 2nd at the Wanda Metropolitano could be postponed. League regulations establish that a match must be suspended if a team does not have at least 7 players from the first squad and 13 in total. In any case, everything indicates that Rayo would face an uphill game marked by the large number of casualties.
