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.
