Sports Desk – The greatest rivalry in football between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona (known as El Clasico) will be held on December 18 on Thursday.

The event has to be held in October previously but due to the civil fear among peoples, the date was postponed and then was raised to December 18 on Thursday.

Many of you would be angry with this decision but it was important for the two clubs to settle disputes quickly as the El Clasico is the most main event in football for which the whole world is waiting to occur.

Now the question arises that why did the date has been raised to December 18 instead of being held previously on October 26? Actually, nine Catalan separatists were jailed recently due to which the reschedule of the event happened.

La Liga asked for El Clasico to switch from Barcelona to Real Madrid but both the clubs refused on this decision.
