Many commented that Barca should rank "honor barrier" to congratulate the rival. This is an unspoken ritual of a team in a match against the new champions. In January 2015, Valencia was ranked two of Real's honors with the FIFA Club World Cup.
Cristiano Ronaldo has been poking fun at Barça when he expressed his desire to see the great rival in Mundo Deportivo: "It would be great if Barca made a barricade in honor of Real and I hope they will do it Real are now full of confidence to beat Barca, helping the La Liga race more attractive. "
Barça Foreign Minister Guillermo Amor has confirmed today that the club will not perform the "barrier of honor" at the Super Classics on Dec. 23.
In the past, Barça also received the same honor from Villarreal in 2010, the moment of "Catalan giants" champion FIFA Club World Cup 2009, or personally do this when Real Madrid La Liga 2007/08. However, they have refused to be honored Real in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup when Zinedine Zidane's team just beat Manchester United to win the European Super Cup.
