The game had been rescheduled for Wednesday but will not go ahead
The soap opera never ends. The game between Deportivo de la Coruña and Fuenlabrada, originally suspended on July 20 due to the outbreak of coronavirus at the Madrid club, has been postponed once again.
LaLiga announced earlier this week that the match would be played on Wednesday, Aug. 5, but Deportivo have asked for a new date, saying it's impossible to comply with health protocols and have their players ready for the match.
Depor have not trained since July 21 and some of the players are not even in the city, so it will be difficult to fulfill the necessary testing required to get the game on.
The Galician side's intention is for the game to be played on Aug. 7, giving them more time to get their players back.
If possible, that would mean there would be no knock on effect for the playoffs, which are due to be two-legged affairs played on Aug. 13 and 16, with the final taking place on Aug. 20 and 23.
Fuenlabrada need just a point from the game against Depor to leapfrog Elche and take the final playoff spot, along with Almeria, Real Zaragoza and Girona.
Depor, meanwhile, were relegated to the third tier of Spanish football on the final day of the season despite their game against Fuenlabrada being called off. However, they could fight it.
