MADRID — The Spanish league says it has decided to move Saturday’s match between Sevilla and Leganes until the evening to avoid high temperatures.

The match that was originally scheduled for 4.15 p.m. (1415 GMT) local time in Seville will now be played at 10.30 p.m. (2030 GMT).

Spain’s weather service says temperatures could reach 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit) Saturday.
