Real Madrid has seen how the match that should play today on matchday 9 of La Liga, in which they faced Athletic Club, was suspended. The whites, like other teams, would have been adversely affected by the selection calendar chosen by CONMEBOL, since the South American players would not have arrived in time to prepare for the league match.
For this reason, the game will be postponed and the Whites will be able to focus on the next two matches that they have on the horizon and that can mean a before and after in the season for the team.
Real Madrid will play again on October 19 at 9:00 p.m. against Shaktar Donestk, in a match corresponding to matchday 3 of the Champions League. The whites will be able to calmly prepare the game with all their troops already back and rested to try to secure the first place in the group.
The decision to suspend the match has annoyed Barça, who will play their league game tomorrow, as well as in the midweek in the Champions League, leaving them less time to rest than the whites for the Clásico to be played next weekend.
Real Madrid are facing Barça at a difficult time for the Catalans, and this will be added to the fact that they will be able to rest this weekend. The calendar is sometimes capricious and has wanted the Classic to be played just at this time, so the Blaugranas cannot complain much more, since they in the previous stoppage of selections if the game was suspended because it was played on Saturday. The blaugranas will play on Sunday so they have had time to prepare for the league match and will have to play it.
