Javier Tibas, president of la Liga, confirmed that the decision to postpone the Clásico between Real Madrid and Barcelona was considered within the national security of the country and no one had anything to do with it.

The match was scheduled for October 26th but was postponed until December 18th due to protests in Catalonia.

"We wanted to replace the first-round matches with the second, to postpone it for as long as possible, our goal was to move the match to March at the Camp Nou," Tibas said in a press statement.

He continued: "The choice of December 18th was not with the approval of the League, the Clásico is national security for the country and not in the hands of Barcelona or anyone."

He continued: "The decision to postpone came after a full study of the situation, which was forbidden to be held on October 26."

"There are a lot of business interests that are affected by that game," he said.
