Alejandro Hernández Hernández will referee next Wednesday's El Clasico at Camp Nou when Barcelona face Real Madrid in the rearranged fixture.

Fifth El Clásico 

The Canary Islander has already officiated a game involving the Catalan side once this season as Ernesto Valverde's men fell 3-1 in Valencia away to Levante UD in LaLiga and has on four times now been handed the responsibility of overseeing the biggest domestic league game in the global game as Real Madrid won 1-2 in the Catalan capital in  the 2015-16 season. He was also on officiating duty for the 2016-17 clash at the Santiago Bernabéu where Sergio Ramos was red carded in a match that saw Barcelona run out 2-3 winners.

He also oversaw the 2-2 draw at Camp Nou in the 2017-18 season in a game that saw Barça's Sergio Roberto receive his marching orders with his last El Clásico being last season where a solitary Ivan Rakitic goal was enough for Barcelona to secure maximum points
