La Liga: Atletico vs Athletic Match Postponed Over Snowstorm

La Liga match between Atletico Madrid and Athletic Bilbao has been postponed due to disruptions from a rare snowstorm in Spain

The organisers said it sought the postponement "given the exceptional situation caused by the storm across a large part of the peninsula and the impossibility of having the pitch in optimal conditions."

The conditions prevented Athletic from traveling to Madrid as the plane carrying the squad was forced to make a U-turn after it was unable to land at Madrid's Barajas Airport.

"Athletic Club would like to thank Atletico Madrid for their collaboration and willingness to find solutions during this difficult situation," Athletic said in a statement.

Atletico is top of LaLiga with 38 points from 15 games, while Athletic are ninth on 21 points from 18 games.

A new date for the match would be confirmed later, LaLiga said.

Real Madrid's match against Osasuna later on Saturday was also under threat after the LaLiga champions were trapped on a plane for more than two hours on Friday due to ice on the runway at Barajas airport but Spanish media reported the game is likely to go ahead.
