La Liga president Javier Tebas has said that the second Clasico of the season will be held on Sunday 6th May at 8.45 pm (CET).

Tebas was talking on Cadena SER’s ‘El Larguero’ programme and said the kick off time was to appease the American market, with the game in December having started at 1pm.

Barcelona won that game at the Santiago Bernabeu 3-0 thanks to goals from Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Aleix Vidal.

After the game Barcelona will have only three La Liga matches left against Villarreal, Levante and Real Sociedad, so the Clasico may have a bearing on the title race.

The game also comes just days after the second legs of the Champions League semi-finals (which are slated for the 1st and 2nd May).

Barcelona and Real Madrid will both hope to still be involved, although there’s some way still to go before they are assured of a place in the last four of the competition.
