La Liga: Why El Clasico Match Was Postponed

The upcoming El Clasico meeting between Barcelona and Real Madrid has been postponed indefinitely upon the request of La Liga.

The two teams were expected to meet in a Spanish La Liga game at the Nou Camp on October 26 but it has now been postponed until further note.

The game was postponed until further note upon the request from La Liga due to the ongoing civil unrest in Catalonia.

Barcelona are two points off the Spanish La Liga summit currently held by arch rivals Real Madrid ahead of the El Clasico though the two teams still have one game each to play this weekend before they were scheduled to play each other.

Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona have the opportunity to secure top spot on the league table ahead of their trip to Eibar this weekend.

Barcelona can usurp Real Madrid at the top of the Spanish La Liga table with a win over Eibar on Saturday afternoon.

The Catalans face the tricky trip to Eibar in what’s the first game of the Spanish La Liga on Saturday.

In the last game on Saturday, league leaders Real Madrid face a trip to Real Mallorca knowing that a win will maintain their place at the summit.
