Ancelotti’s team has a league calendar with opponents of different entities during the section of the season in which they are in the round of 16. The whites face Villarreal, Alavés, Rayo Vallecano and Real Sociedad in those days.

Between the duels against franjirrojos and donostiarras, Madrid can play a hypothetical second leg of the Copa del Rey semifinals.

Once the Champions League round of 16 crosses have been resolved, Madrid will visit Mallorca and the following day will arrive one of the great appointments of the season’s appointments: the Classic of the second at the Santiago Bernabéu which, if Barcelona qualifies for the knockout stages of the Champions League, is scheduled to be played on Sunday, March 20, 2022.

Eliminated the double value rule in the opposite field

It should be remembered that for this season’s qualifiers UEFA has eliminated the rule that, in the event of a tie, qualification was given to the team that would have scored the most goals away from home. This season, any tie after the 180-minute tie will be resolved in overtime and, if equality persists, in the penalty shoot-out.
