El Clasico switched to December 23

By AFP, Madrid


La Liga president Javier Tebas confirmed on Monday that the first El Clasico of the season between Real Madrid and Barcelona will be played on December 23 at 1:00 pm (1200GMT).
The clash was expected to take place on December 20 as part of a full midweek round of fixtures before Spain's winter break.
However, given Real could feature in the Club World Cup final in Japan on December 17, the European champions have been given extra recovery time.
