Barcelona vs Real Madrid postponed as El Clasico clash to be rescheduled on Monday

The El Clasico tie between Barcelona and Real Madrid that was due to take place on October 26 will be rescheduled on Monday after it was postponed by the Royal Spanish Football Federation.

The highly-anticipated clash between Barcelona and Real Madrid has been postponed due to recent protests.

The Spanish Supreme Court are currently sentencing nine Catalan separatist leaders for their involvement in a referendum that was held in defiance of the Spanish Constitution and a subsequent declaration of independence in 2017.

La Liga bosses fear that protestors could take advantage of the fixture's huge global audience, which is estimated to be around 650 million.

The two clubs are set to agree a new date for the fixture on Monday, with a December date likely.

An original date of December 18 was suggested, but that is likely to be changed to a weekend as the league look to get as many viewers as possible.

If the tie is to take place on December 7, the fixtures that Real Madrid and Barcelona have with Real Mallorca and Espanyol respectively will have to be moved, which would need to be organised by La Liga president Javier Tebas.

Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde has given his thoughts on the news, and admitted that it isn’t ideal.

He said: "It’s true that there was a proposal to change the fixtures round, but we weren’t in favour of that because we play the Wednesday before."

"There’s nine days to go until the game. We need to respect the calendar and also the fans."

"Under normal circumstances we’d play at home."

"They’re anticipating certain different circumstances and while we know that this week has been out of the ordinary, we are hopeful of playing the game at our ground."

"That’s what we want to do."
