El Clasico – Barca vs Real – More than just a game

Every football fan in the world is electrified whenever the two biggest clubs in the world collide. Fan’s excitement is far beyond the country’s borders. Traditionally, the game presents the best players in the world and today, players like Messi and Ronaldo measure themselves on the pitch.

Historically, the rivalry between the clubs started in the Franco era – FC Barcelona represented the rebellious Catalonia and Real Madrid, the capital club and a symbol of the regime. Even today, the red and blue fans often admonishing and accusing recalls the former support of the Whites – especially when Real’s record win (11:1) in the El Classico comes up.

Today, luckily the football is more important. However, players who have swapped the club colours are still under immense pressure. A good example was the transfer of Portuguese Luis Figo from Barcelona to Madrid in 2000, which sparked an enormous storm. One of many anecdotes in this regard, was the subsequent Derby, when a pig’s head was thrown at Figo. Very emotional was also the transfer of Luis Enrique in the opposite direction. He was a marginal figure at Real, but was loved by the Barcelona fans as he often expressed his dislike for his former club.

The interaction of the players from both clubs in the Spanish national team is also described as critical. Only the triumphs in recent major tournaments stopped this discussion. Everyone, however, can be sure that this discussion will be raised again once the golden generation stops winning titles.

The first El Clasico is more than 110 years ago and was won by Barca with 3-1 and more than ever – fascinated the masses. Even meaningless games like the Supercup turn into huge media events and get an incredible importance – El Clasico will always be more than just game.
