Barcelona had sent a protocol to the government in Catalonia regarding the possibility of opening the doors for a limited capacity of 30,000 people for the Champions League and Clasico match against Real Madrid, with a commitment to apply and respect all security and precautionary controls in place against the epidemic, but since then the government has refused the request, Considering it a very expensive risk, given the dangerous situation that Catalonia is going through due to the high risk of re-outbreak of the epidemic in this second wave of the emerging corona virus.
