The Classical of this first turn in the Camp Nou had to delay does some weeks by fault of the protests that there was in Barcelona by the sentence of the Procés Catalan. After giving him a lot of turns, the Committee of Competition decided that the best was that the party played on 18 December.

LaLiga, with his president Javier Thebes in command, refused from the first moment this date, that was the one who had agreed FC Barcelona and Real Madrid. LaLiga Ensured that it could not play because in these dates there is Glass of Rey and a meeting of these dimensions prejudiced gravely a tournament that already of by yes is touched of death in Spain.

Finally, in spite of the protests, the crash will contest the 18D. But from LaLiga do not surrender and still look forward to to avoid that it coincide with the parties of Glass of this day. Javier Thebes ensured in his last intervention that the schedule of the Classical still is not confirmed and that follow giving him turns to the subject.

"The Classical will play on 18 December. Still we are deciding the hour so that it do not coincide with the schedule of the Glass of Rey", commented Thebes. They are some surprising statements, since all seemed to indicate that the meeting would be at night with security. Even the president himself took for granted this in some words of recently more than a week.

"It is very important by the subject of schedules. No only in China, but all over the world. The schedule of the first Classical always was for Middle East and Asia. Now being at night, for these countries, is not the same", explained Thebes leaving clear that was assumed that the crash would play in nocturnal schedule. It seems that it has given course backwards and follows working so that it was not like this.

The Classical can not be to the midday

It will be necessary to see where remains finally all this, since on 18 December is not festive and would be impossible that the fans could attend to the party if it is not in nocturnal schedule. The Camp Nou only could fill if the Classical began from the 19:00 hours. Thebes would want that it went to the midday, but to day of today this seems unfeasible.
