Barcelona Reveal Reasons Why They Will Not Mount Guard Of Honour For Real Madrid In El Clasico

Barcelona have explained the reason behind it’s decision not to mount a guard of honour for Club World Cup champions Real Madrid ahead of the El Clasico after Los Blancos’ success in UAE last weekend.

After leading Zinedine Zidane’s men to their Club World Cup win, Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo said Barcelona should give his team a guard of honour.

Madrid host a crucial Clasico at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday, needing a win to close an 11-point gap to Barca.

However, Guillermo Amor – a director at Barca – ruled that idea out.

“We make it clear that we only do this when we participate in the competition,” he said after Barca’s 4-0 thrashing of Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday.

“When we compete in the competition, we will do it but that is not the case. That’s the way it is.”

Barca coach Ernesto Valverde said he was yet to even consider the possibility of a guard of honour.

“We’ve only just finished this game,” he said. “I haven’t even paid it a thought.”

Unbeaten in 16 league games this season, Barca hold a six-point advantage over second-placed Atletico Madrid.
