Barca-Madrid set for May 6

The second El Clasico of the season between Barcelona and Real Madrid have been set for May 6 with an evening kick-off, say reports.

La Liga president Javier Tebas confirmed the date and time of the match on Cadena Ser’s El Larguero programme on Monday night.

Diario Sport had already given the details of the forthcoming match at the Camp Nou, which could be crucial in Barca’s pursuit of the league title.

The match is scheduled to coincide with the American market after the first meeting – a lunchtime kick-off in December – was angled more at the Asian TV share.
