Real Betis manager Gus Poyet admits he is unhappy about having to play Sevilla in La Liga on Tuesday night.
Betis were in action last Friday and earned a 2-2 home draw with Granada but will play the Seville derby on Tuesday at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
Sevilla have had one less day to recover after drawing 1-1 with Eibar on Saturday but it is Poyet who has had most to say about the scheduling.
The former Sunderland chief realises that it is all down to TV but is clearly incensed about having to play such a big game during the week.
"The weekends are when football is supposed to be played," he told reporters. "We must excuse the TV broadcasters, but we are a little bit sick of this."
And the Uruguayan confessed that the significance of the match has not been lost on him since he took over in the summer.
"It's a special, unique game in a crazy football city - you can tell how passionate the fans are, even when I go out to buy bread," he added.
