Real Betis coach Pepe Mel is upset with the fixture scheduling this season.

Mel will take his team into their game with Real Mallorca far from happy with the fact they have to play in the heat of the day.

He said: "They organise games for midday so that Asia can watch Real Madrid or Barcelona but those who play at that time are the rest.

"Those that make the schedules should take these factors into account because the temperatures at this time of year are different in Seville to other places and on a matter of health the game this weekend is a risk.

"Unfortunately, during our time in the Segunda Division we had a lot of games at 12 o'clock but never in this type of temperature."
