Real Madrid and FC Barcelona meet in a crucial clash for La Liga in this Sunday's 'El Clasico'. In the run-up to the game, the traditional lunch between the two teams' boards of directors will take place. Florentino Perez and Joan Laporta will meet and discuss the Super League issue after the Catalan's ultimatum: "If it doesn't start in the 2024-25 or 2025-26 seasons, I will rethink it".

Joan Laporta assured two months ago that if the Super League project did not start in the 2024-25 or 2025-26 seasons, he would rethink his participation. This Sunday he will have the opportunity to meet with Florentino Perez, as 'El Clasico' is being played, and explain his position to him.
The directors' lunch prior to Real Madrid-Barcelona will have the Super League as main topic, as well as all the tension that has built up between the two clubs in recent times. The Madrid president was absent from the Lluis Companys in the first round of the championship due to a message from a 'Cule' executive against Vinicius on the social network X, formerly Twitter. For his part, the Catalan leader is displeased with the Chamartin-based club for appearing in the 'Negreira affaire' as a private prosecutor.
According to 'AS', FC Barcelona had reasonable doubts about whether to hold the lunch with 'Los Blancos'. Finally, the meeting will take place at the Zalacain restaurant.
On the other hand, Laporta invited Super League CEO Bernd Reichart to the Champions League quarter-final second leg against PSG. Perhaps in response to the Parisian club's invitation to UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin to the Parc des Princes the previous week.
