DECEMBER 18 EL CLASICO COULD BE PUT OFF

There is a huge risk that the rearranged Clasico on December 18 could be postponed once again.

According Spanish news outlet, Tribuna citing RAC1, the platform ‘Tsunami Democratic’ are planning organized political protests to take place on December 18.

The rally around the Camp Nou stadium is set to start at 16:00 CET, just four hours before the Clasico kicks off.

18,000 followers of ‘Tsunami Democratic’ are reported to be ready to participate in this event.

It remains to be seen how the Spanish FA are going to react

‘Tsunami Democratic’ group refers to alleged political opression following the imprisonment of Catalan leaders in October for their participation in the Catalonia independence movement in 2017.

The court’s verdict caused political unrest and tensions in Barcelona.

The match between Barcelona and Real Madrid was initially meant to be played on October 26, however, it was rescheduled due to security concerns in Catalonia.

Both clubs released their official statements where they named December 18 as their preferred date for El Clasico.

La Liga then protested the decision as they were afraid of losing part of the revenue due to the game being held on Wednesday, alongside Copa del Rey and FIFA World Cup clashes.
