The president of Real Madrid will not attend the Barcelona classic tomorrow, Sunday, according to the newspaper "El Mundo". Real Madrid does not confirm news that Barcelona is not aware of. The white club expects a very hostile reception for their team at the Camp Nou, even more so than usual after Real Madrid's announcement to appear in the Negreira case. This will be the first time that Florentino Pérez has not gone to see a classic at the Camp Nou since he presided over his club.
The atmosphere between the two clubs right now is tense and the Barça board decided to suspend the traditional lunch between boards that was held in the last Cup semifinal match at the Bernabéu. Florentino Pérez did attend the Camp Nou, in his first season in charge of the team, in the 200-01 season, on the occasion of a harsh reception for Luis Figo in white, with all kinds of throws onto the pitch, including bottles of whiskey and a piglet's head.
Pere Aragonès, the president of the Generalitat de Catalunya, who is on an official trip to Latin America, will also not be present in the Camp Nou box. Ada Colau, mayor of Barcelona, will attend, as will Josep Gonzàlez-Cambray, Minister of Education, among other personalities.
