La Liga ask for Barcelona-Real Madrid game to be moved

MES QUE UN CLUB: Barcelonas Camp Nou.

La Liga has asked for El Clasico on 26 October to be moved from Barcelona’s Nou Camp stadium to Real Madrid’s Bernabeu over fears of civil unrest.

The match is due to take place on Saturday October 26 at Nou Camp. But the Spanish football league is seeking to reverse the fixture due to ongoing trouble throughout the autonomous region.

La Liga made the request to the Spanish Football Federation, citing “exceptional circumstances beyond our control”.

The request has not been made to Barcelona or Real Madrid.

“Prison is not the solution”.

The nine separatists were convicted of sedition over their role in the referendum and handed jail sentences of between nine and 13 years by Spain’s Supreme Court.

Following the sentencing, Barcelona said: “Prison is not the solution.”

The Spanish champions added: “Now more than ever, the club asks all political leaders to lead a process of dialogue and negotiation to resolve this conflict, which should also allow for the release of convicted civic and political leaders.
