Formal request after Celta - Real Madrid called off

Alavés had made a formal written petition on Monday to the FEF asking for the game to be rescheduled on the basis that the Basque side will be at a disadvantage after Celta’s league match against Real Madrid in Vigo on Sunday was called off due to the storm front battering the north of Spain.
