Getafe are said to be outraged at plans from the Spanish FA that would see them miss out on a Champions League spot.
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.
Those proposals would see Getafe and Atletico de Madrid go into the Europa League, but Getafe are level on points with fourth-placed Real Sociedad and the two have the same goal difference.
La Real are ahead in the standings due to having scored more goals than Jose Bordalas’s side, but this is even more controversial due to the league’s head-to-head rules.
La Liga rules stipulate that if teams finish level on points, head-to-head record between the teams will be decisive and only if they are the equal, will the decision be deferred to goal difference.
However, that is only applicable if teams have played each other twice but Real Sociedad and Getafe have met just once this season – when Getafe won 2-1 in San Sebastian.
Getafe boss Bordalas is cited by the reports as saying ‘when a championship ends, the first criterion is the individual confrontation’, while the club president Angel Torres was even more indignant.
Torres is cited as saying that the Spanish FA have ‘no right’ to make these lists and added: “What we want is to play. Getafe wants to earn whatever we get on the pitch.”
