Real want to move Clasico

Real Madrid want to bring the date of the La Liga Clasico with Barcelona at the Bernabeu forward to March 1, to give them more time to prepare for a Champions League game with Manchester United.

The game is currently scheduled for Saturday March 2. However if the game is brought forward, so will their Copa del Rey semi final clash on Wednesday 27 February to the Tuesday of that week.

That in turn would mean that the two sides' games on the weekend of 23/24 February need to be brought forward to the Saturday, which would require the approval of their opponents.
