THE OCTOBER 26 showdown is set to be played at the Nou Camp, but league chiefs are now concerned over hosting the highest-profile fixture of the season amid the unrest in the city and have asked the country’s Football Association (RFEF) to swap the venue.
A statement read: “We have requested the competitions committee of the RFEF to meet and change the location of El Clasico to Madrid because of exceptional circumstances beyond our control.”
The Spanish giants are currently set to meet in Barcelona in nine days, with the opposite fixture later in Madrid to take place on March 1.
