I am trying to solve a problem for last two weeks but still I haven’t not found any solution yet.
Let me explain my problem first:
I have two custom post types: one is football_fixture and second is football_league.
These two CPT have two common taxonomies: one is “competition” and second is ‘’session”.These two taxonomies have terms also; for example: laliga, EPL, Seria and 2016-17, 2015-16 respectively.
Now what I want :
In my football_league post , I want to show the content of football_fixture according to following condition:
1)In football_league post If I select term of competition taxonomy and session taxonomy then it will show only the content of football_fixture posts which has those terms. See image for more explanation: enter image description here Suppose, I have published 5 football_fixture posts with competition terms “laliga” and session term “2026-17”.
Now if I published a football_league post with competition terms “laliga” and session term “2026-17” then it will show those 5 football_fixture’s 5 post. Is it possible? I used following codes:

I have solved the problem myself:
What I did is:
First created single-football_league.php template where i placed following codes:

<?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
                    <?php get_template_part( 'content-parts/content', 'league' ); ?>
                <?php endwhile; ?> 

Second: In content-league.php, I placed following codes, and it works:

$terms = wp_get_post_terms( $post->ID, array('competition', 'session') );
$term_slugs = wp_list_pluck( $terms, 'slug' );    
 $season = wp_get_post_terms( $post->ID, 'session' );
$season_slugs = wp_list_pluck( $terms, 'slug' ); 
$args = array(
        'post_type' => array( 'football_fixture' ), // profile and letter are CPTs
            'tax_query' => array(
                'taxonomy' => 'competition',
                'field' => 'slug',
                'terms' => $term_slugs
               array (
              'taxonomy' => 'session',
              'terms' => $season_slugs,
              'field' => 'slug')
