The original date for the first El Clasico for the season was October 26 but the Competition Committee decided to postpone it due to fear of potential crowd troubles.
La Liga have suggested to the Competition Committee that the postponed 26 October El Clasico should now be played on December 7, reports Spanish newspaper Marca.
Provided the Competition Committee, which sets the dates for La Liga fixtures, accepts the Spanish football authority’s proposal, it would affect the 16th matchday of the current season.
As per the current La Liga fixture list, Barcelona will play host to Real Mallorca whereas Real Madrid will entertain Espanyol at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium on their 16th match of the domestic season.
If the proposal is accepted, La Liga president Javier Tebas would need to convince the other two sides, Mallorca and Espanyol, to agree to the change in their fixture list.
