LaLiga have confirmed kick-times for Matchday 9 of LaLiga Santander 2021/22. Real Sociedad - RCD Mallorca will open the weekend's action at 21:00 CEST on Saturday 16th October, ending with RCD Espanyol - Cadiz CF at the same time on Monday 18th October.
However, dates have not been assigned to the matches between Granada CF - Atlético Madrid and Real Madrid - Athletic Club, with their respective kick-off times to be confirmed at a later date.
Like in Matchday 4, LaLiga have requested the postponement of these matches to the RFEF's Competition Committee due to FIFA's foregoing decision to extend the international break for countries involved in Conmebol World Cup qualifiers up until the evening before the Matchday (October 14th, or the early morning of October 15th in Spain), affecting the preparations of teams involved in UEFA Champions League matches on Tuesday 19th October.
The request made to the Competition Committee, along with the existing postponement from Matchday 4, intends to alleviate the damage caused by a decision threatening the sporting integrity of the competition as much as possible.
