Barcelona's game against Sevilla this weekend has been postponed until a later date.

The La Liga clash was set to take place on Saturday night but has been pushed back after an appeal to Spain's High Council for Sports. The division asked for the games to be moved due to the late-running of the international break in South America.

A number of players would have been unable to play on Saturday. The game between Villarreal and Alaves has also been postponed until a later date.

A statement from Barcelona read: "High Council for Sports (CSD) has adjudicated in favour of the injunction requested by La Liga to postpone the fixture between Sevilla and Barca set for Saturday 11 September. The game was set to start at 9pm CEST in the Sanchez Pizjuan stadium in Seville but will now be played at a later date.

"The request was made after the Spanish Football Federation's Competition Committee came out against La Liga wish for the fixtures between Sevilla and Barca and Villarreal and Alaves to be postponed.

"On 29 August La Liga released a press statement announcing that they have made a request to the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) to postpone the two games from week's list of fixtures as well as to modify kick off times of other fixtures.

"After (the) failure of La Liga's injunction against FIFA's decision to prolong the time away of South American international players in the Court of Arbitration for Sport, the decision was taken 'as there will be players who return to their clubs on Friday after having played three games during the international break and many of them have games on Saturday and Sunday, all of which makes clear that will not be in any state to compete on an equal footing.'"
