Jordi Carbó has told Cadena Ser that the clash at Atleti’s Wanda Metropolitano stadium is now unlikely to go ahead due to a fresh batch of snow that is set to descend upon Madrid on Friday.

The snowfall is set to begin on Friday afternoon and be sustained across up to 18 hours through to Saturday lunchtime, with the game set to be played that afternoon.
Many pitches were covered in snow yesterday and the forecast says the worst is yet to arrive, so the situation looks set to get worse before it improves.
