El Clasico to hold minute's silence

Saturday's blockbuster La Liga clash between Barcelona and Real Madrid will be preceded by a minute's silence for the 71 people killed in a plane crash that decimated the Brazilian football team Chapecoense.

"Every day and every weekend there are hundreds of thousands of players travelling in cars, buses, trains and planes... they are always exposed to this risk of accidents," said La Liga president Javier Tebas on Wednesday.

"We want to recognise, remember and offer our condolences to the families."

A minute's silence will also be held before all matches in the Copa del Rey across Spain on Wednesday and Thursday.
