Madrid trip to Girona in doubt?

Real Madrid’s trip to Girona on Sunday may be postponed if the Catalan government declares independence, say reports in Spain.

The intentions of the regional government are still unclear while numerous Spanish media outlets have cited Onda Cero’s report of local authorities willingness to postpone the match should a declared be made.

Any decision itself will be taken local authorities and there is little threat of disturbances around the newly-promoted club’s Estadi Montilivi.

Madrid Coach Zinedine Zidane and several club officials have played down any security threat although any postponement will not be on footballing grounds.

Barcelona’s match at home to Las Palmas earlier this month at the Camp Nou was played behind closed doors due to disturbances in the region that afternoon following the independence vote.
