FC Barcelona and Real Madrid are scheduled to meet next Wednesday after turmoil in Catalonia that caused the fixture to be postponed from October 26.

However, the teams held a meeting as Madrid wanted the match to be played on a neutral venue, not in Barcelona.

This is due to raging protests all over Catalonia in the fight for independence.

Obviously, Real Madrid’s arrival would mean a big opportunity for the protesters to send a message.

But FC Barcelona look like they found a way to stop any potential pitch invasion.

According to the Spanish outlet El Golazo de Gol, Blaugrana will release the statement, threatening to ban any pitch invaders for life.

A strong message from the Catalans. This should ensure a peaceful and football-focused El Clasico.
