It resumes after aggression: the day and time of the ‘new’ Betis vs. Seville for Copa del Rey

The Copa del Rey round of 16 match between Real Betis and the Seville FC, suspended Saturday after an object thrown from the stands hit the head of Joan Jordán, will resume this Sunday at 4:00 p.m. behind closed doors at the Benito Villamarín, the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) has confirmed.

The competition judge of the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) transferred his resolution to the clubs involved and also to the Technical Committee of Referees.

In this decision, which has been distributed by the RFEF, it is added that “Without prejudice to the immediate enforceability of this resolution, an appeal may be lodged against it before the Second Instance National Committee within the non-extendable period of 48 hours from its notification.”.

It is also indicated that the provisions of article 242.1 of the General Regulations of the RFEF will be observed regarding the line-up of footballers in the resumption, with which only those who were already registered for Saturday will be able to play.

The resolution specifies that after consultations with the clubs, the venue proposed that the meeting resume on Sunday, January 16 for reasons of organizational logistics.

The visitor, for his part, requested that, in the event of a resumption, it not take place before Wednesday, January 19, given that the footballer who received the impact of the bar has received a medical recommendation for a 24-hour observation period, so that his team could not count on his support at the restart, considering himself harmed by it.

The derby was suspended by the referee after 39 minutes into the first half the Sevilla player Joan Jordan received the impact of a PVC bar on the head just after the local team tied at one.

The incident occurred just after the Betis the scoreboard with an ‘Olympic goal’ by Frenchman Nabil Fekir who made it 1-1, since before that Argentine Alejandro ‘Papu’ Gómez was able to make it 0-1 in the 35th minute.

In the celebration of the goal by the local fans, a stick thrown from the stands of Benito Villamarín’s Gol Sur hit Jordán’s head, who initially fell on the grass, somewhat stunned. EFE
