Week 17 of the 2018/19 LaLiga season overlaps with Real Madrid‘s trip to the United Arab Emirates for the Club World Cup, and thus their game with Villarreal has been moved to January 3.

Originally due to take place on December 22, the capital club’s match away to the Yellow Submarine cannot be played over the winter break, which runs between December 24 and January 2.

Los Blancos are pencilled in for a semi-final in Abu Dhabi on December 19 with the finals and third place play-off taking place three days later.

So far, Guadalajara of Mexico and New Zealand’s Team Wellington have already booked their place at the Club World Cup, as have UAE team Al-Ain as the host club.
