Castilla game against Las Rozas this Saturday has been suspended due to “the impossibility of [the match] taking place as a result of the snowstorm that hit a large part of our country,” according to the RFEF’s competition’s judge.
The Spanish capital was hit by a historic snowstorm last weekend which has so far killed three people and left thousands without power. Real Madrid Castilla’s game against San Sebastian de los Reyes was suspended and, as the city continues to battle with extreme weather conditions, the reserves will once again have to wait another week to restart their season.
Including COVID stoppages earlier this season, this is the fourth time a Castilla match has been suspended and, barring a friendly on January 3rd, Castilla haven’t played a game since the Madrid derby on December 13th. The stoppages and somewhat lacklustre performances are making the already prolonged Segunda B season that little bit more sluggish. Unfortunately, Castilla aren’t the only victims of the weather .
Both Juvenil A and Juvenil B have seen their fixtures suspended once again, the latter haven’t played a competitive game since December 12th due to a mixture of COVID and weather cancellations. How damaging all these stoppages will be is hard to tell, however, it makes finding a match fitness and rhythm impossible, a shame given all three teams were finding form at the end of 2020.
