AthleticTOThe Federation had decided to withdraw the penalty for accumulation of reprimands
Lat the end of the Cupwill have penalty for accumulation of reprimands. If any of the semifinalists receives the third yellow card of the competition in the second leg, the final of La Cartuja will be lost. The Royal Spanish Federation of SoccerI had decided to adopt UEFA regulations and clean the cardsof the semifinalists, but the proposal he launched at the start of the seasonstill does not have the endorsement of the Higher Sports Council(CSD). The approval to a measure that equals the Cup with Champions and Europa League.
The RFEF plan limited the loss of the final to players who saw double yellow in the second game of the semifinal or were ejected with direct red. The Federation also wanted to boost this season that serving a cycle of reprimands in the last League match had no penalty in the first of the next. The measure needed the endorsement of the Board of Directors of the Higher Sports Council, but it has not yet been given. The CSD did not take sides at the start of the championship for the modification of the cards in the League and the RFEF had to send a circular remembering that the modification could not be carried out. The possibility of it taking place in the Cup depends on the CSD commission meeting before the start of the semifinals to approve it. And he hasn’t done it. Theclubs are again aware that a yellow thirdin the second semifinal will make the final impossible.
