Soccer - Barcelona-Madrid : the rivalry

Soccer - Barcelona-Madrid : the rivalry

There are derbies and there are derbies. But trying to understand the rivalry between Real Madrid and Barcelona through the prisms of Celtic versus Rangers, Liverpool versus Everton or Spurs versus Arsenal is a mistake. As Barça's motto makes clear, it is "more than a club".


Whenever Real step out on to the  Nou Camp (Our Ground, in Catalan) they are not just facing a football team they are facing the whole of the Catalan nation. On Tuesday night they were greeted by a cacophony of sound and flares, plus myriad Catalan and Barcelona flags from the 95,000 Barça fans in the stadium, completely drowning out the 3,000 Real fans.


Outside there were another four million Catalans watching on television in bars, restaurants and in their homes, with flags and banners on their walls and hanging from their balconies.

    The same is in Silesia (Poland) when a Polish team (esp. Legia Varsovia) is coming to fight the Silesian one, especially Ruch Chorzów, it's like war. Silesia is like Catalonia, but we don't have autonomy as you but we are fighting for it.
