The Government supported the postponement of Barça-Madrid

The sources consulted by this newspaper confirmed that high levels of the Government sent to the leaders of the Federation their desire for the Classic.


Members of the Government of Spain intervened in the conflict on the date of the Classic and were in favor of the postponement. The sources consulted by this newspaper confirmed that high levels of the Government sent to the leaders of the Federation their desire that the Classic, under the current circumstances, not be disputed until after the general elections, scheduled for November 10. The decision taken in this regard by the Competition Committee complies with the wishes of the Government, which feared that the independentistas took advantage of Barça-Real Madrid to give an image of conflict in Spain weeks before the elections.

But the last word is not yet spoken. Because beyond the wishes of the Government, coinciding with the decision of Competition, the situation can still take a turn. Against the resolution of Competition it is possible to appeal to the Appeals Committee. And Barça, they suspect in the Federation, plans to appeal on Monday the decision of Competition. To this end, the Barça club, which insists on playing on the scheduled date, on Saturday of next week, will present a report by the Autonomous Police of Catalonia in the RFEF in which security is guaranteed.

Barça has requested that report based on the statements of Toni Castejón, union representative of the Mossos, in the SER: "I think that today the security of Barcelona-Real Madrid can be guaranteed ... My opinion is that must play the game, the violent should not stop more things than they already stop in this country. " But in the face of this argument, in the Federation they already have an antidote. As this newspaper has been able to confirm, security must not only be guaranteed by the Autonomous Police, but also by the Government Delegation in Barcelona. The security inside the stadium would be in any case the responsibility of the Barcelona Football Club, while outside the Camp Nou it would be the responsibility of the Mossos and the State Security Forces and Bodies. Barça would guarantee security on the premises and Mossos in the streets. But the Government Delegation would oppose public order risks
