El Clasico this season caused controversies like no other in recent history with the Catalan protests in full stride ahead of the big clash.

After rescheduling El Clasico from October 26 to December 18, the Spanish Football Federation is facing new issues now.

Just a week ahead of the duel, Madrid players started to fear for their safety in Barcelona.

According to El Chiringuito, Real Madrid players won’t go into a plane if the league doesn’t guarantee their safety.

Perhaps this is a method to put more pressure on the Federation.

However, the Catalan protestors didn’t show signs of violence, and El Clasico should go through without any issues next Wednesday.

There’s still a lot of negotiating to go, but for sake of all football fans, we just hope that the issues get resolved sooner rather than later.
