Real Madrid y Barça:

rivalidad total



Soccer in Spain is a force to be reckoned with, and not two teams draw more attention than Real Madrid and the Fútbol Club Barcelona. Whether the venue is Madrid’s Santiago Bernabéu or Barcelona’s Camp Nou, the two cities shut down for the showdown, paralyzed by fútbol fever. A ticket to the actual game is always the hottest ticket in town.

The rivalry between Real Madrid and Barça is about more than soccer. As the two biggest, most powerful cities in Spain, Barcelona and Madrid are constantly compared to one another and have a natural rivalry. There is also a political component to the dynamic. Barcelona, with its distinct language and culture, has long struggled for increased autonomy from Madrid’s centralized government. Under Francisco Franco’s rule (1939-1975), when repression of the Catalan identity was at its height, a game between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona was wrapped up with all the symbolism of the regime versus the resistance, even though both teams suffered casualties in Spain’s civil war and the subsequent Franco dictatorship.http://ts2.mm.bing.net/th?id=i.4630619764229609&pid=1.7&w=211&h=137&c=7&rs=1http://ts4.mm.bing.net/th?id=i.4881385705573023&pid=1.7&w=216&h=155&c=7&rs=1

Although the dictatorship is far behind, the momentum of all those decades of competition still transforms both cities into a frenzied, tense panic leading up to the game. Once the final score is announced, one of those cities transforms again, this time into the best party in the country.
