Apparently Almería was too late with the payment for the transfer of some player they bought from Aalborg. FIFA contacted the LFP this week and ordered them to take away three points from Almería. Currently Almería is protesting at TAS, but nobody knows whether or not they'll be able to avoid their punishment.
The absurd part is that all this mess is about 6.000 euros, give or take
If Almería loses 3 points because of this, then Barcelona should've been relegated to the regional divisions because of what happened with Neymar.
Basically, it would be one of the biggest injustices in European football in years, but well. If it ends up saving our asses, I wouldn't object too much...
