Madrid - Head of the Spanish league, Javier Tebas, is confident that Saturday's huge clash between Real Madrid and Barcelona will pass off safely after two high-profile international friendlies were postponed in the wake of Friday's deadly attacks in Paris.
Germany's meeting with the Netherlands was called off just hours before kick-off on Tuesday due to a bomb threat in Hanover, whilst Belgium's friendly against Spain had already been postponed due to the heightened security threat in Brussels.
The Stade de France, where France were hosting Germany, was one of the targets of a number of attacks from gunmen and suicide bombers that left 129 people dead and over 350 injured in Paris.
"Spain has been the target of jihadi terrorism in the past, but this is obviously a police matter," Tebas said in an exclusive interview with AFP.
"Evidently, when something of the magnitude that took place in Paris happens anywhere in Europe, all countries take extra measures.
"Obviously, this week we have to take measures to give greater security to everyone, but there are measures which the police know how to handle.
"The police will control it and I am sure that we will be completely safe."
