The intense rivalry between the 2 sides most often means that if you play for one club, you simply don’t play for the other. In the early days when the majority of players were from the local region and played the majority of their careers at the same club, that wasn’t too much of a problem but now the game is truly global, with these 2 sides leading the way in that regard, you would think that players would find it easier to make the transition.

In reality it seems to be just as hard as ever as since 1996 only 4 players have moved from Barcelona to Real Madrid (only 2 directly) and only 4 have gone in the other direction (with only 1 of these moves directly).

History of El Clasico

The history and rivalry between the Spanish giants of Real Madrid and FC Barcelona is one of the longest and fiercest in world sport but just is the case with any rivalry, it is something that has developed down the years and it is something that has had a number of key moments throughout the histories of both clubs that has proved critical in enabling the rivalry to continue and for El Clasico to become one of the true spectacles of world sport.

In the 1930’s Barca had already started to really develop their identity as a focus point for Catalonia and as a Catalan institution. This was in total contrast to their big rivals Madrid who were in many ways becoming closer to the Madrid based Royal family and were quickly becoming the club of the establishment in Spain.

By the 1936 Coup d’état by Francisco Franco against the second Spanish Republic the rivalry was already strong but things started to move away from the sporting field and more into the politics and ideologies of both clubs and the regions that they represented as the then president of FC Barca Josep Sunyol, who was a member of the Republic Left of Catalonia was arrested and executed with trial by Franca and his armed forces.

This shocking event saw Barca move to the top of organisations that were to be purged by the Franco dictatorship, alongside the seemingly always punished communists, anarchists, and independents.

It was during this period when regional languages and identities were heavily ‘frowned upon’, Barcelona doubled down on their Catalan identity and became a beacon of local pride, something that gained them their motto of Mes que un club (More than a club).

During this period, General Franco was often seen at Real Madrid matches and many high ranking officials of his ruling organisation were strong supporters of Los Blanco’s but what few new at that time just as top officials in Madrid were friendly with Franco, so were those in charge of FC Barcelona and allowed both clubs to enjoy good freedom and improved profits and that helped both clubs to become the giants that they are today and the 2 top club sin the country, something that once again just added to the rivalry between the 2.

This left-right divided on the political level was always an issue for both clubs but things ramped up during the alate 1970’s to the early 1980’s when new ‘supporter’ groups were established. These groups would become known as ultras and with both sets of fans infiltrated by those on the hard right (for Real Madrid) and those on the hard left (for Barca), it was no surprise that hooliganism quickly became the norm at matches and especially on El Clasico occasions.

Those off of the field issues have continued to this very day but the on the field rivalry has also been something that stated early and continues in the modern era.

One of the first matches to really take on the importance of an El Clasico was the 1943 Copa del Generalisimo (the name of the Copa del Rey during Franco’s time in charge) semi-final. In the first leg, played in Barcelona, Barca won comfortably by 3 goals to 0 but there were many question marks over the referee and that led to incredible scenes in the second leg when Real Madrid defeated their big rivals by 11 goals to 1, with Barca constantly abused and attacked during they time in Madrid and the refereeing display seemingly been there to ‘even’ things up from the first leg.

The 2 legs of that semi-final brought the 2 cities to a halt, as is the case on derby day nowadays, and with Real Madrid seemingly helped by the ‘establishment’ and Barca painting themselves as the underdogs undone by the corrupt nationalists, people throughout Spain started to pick sides and the clubs and the matches between the 2 became so much more than a game of football and became a part of the culture of the country.

In the 1950’s the rivalry ramped up once again and thankfully this was for footballing matters, at least by a loose definition.

Whilst playing for Los Millionarios in Colombia, Argentine superstar Alfred Di Stefano caught the attention of both La Liga giants but things were complicated as he was only playing in Colombia due to a players strike in Argentina, where River Plate still owned the playing registration of the creative attacker but both Spanish giants agreed with Los Millionarios to sign him.

River were of course not happy and neither were Barca and Real and after FIFA stepped in, it was decided that Barcelona and Real Madrid had to share the player, on a season by season basis.

As you would expect, that didn’t end well and the then Barca president was forced to resign and that allowed Real to sign the Argentine full time, much to the anger of Barca fans and much to the joy of Real Madrid fans who now had something to brag about and hold over their big rivalries.

This of course added to the sense of pantomime on match days and just added to the rivalry between the 2 sides in a similar fashion to the Luis Figo saga when in 2000, the Portuguese winger agreed to move to Real Madrid but continued to tell his Barca teammates and the FCB management that he was loyal to them.

A huge amount of money was given to Figo by incoming Real president Florentino Perez and when unveiled by Madrid, he was given his playing shirt by Alfredo Di Stefano in a move clearly used by Madrid to show their rivalries that no matter who the player is and even if he is a Barca player, they were the biggest club and they could simply take them.

That of course didn’t go down well in Catalonia and the El Clasico’s during this era become about more than football once again and instead of bragging rights, the matches became about the hatred of Figo which including chanting and banners proclaiming Figo as a ‘Judas’, ‘Scum’ and Mercenary’ and the famous sight of a pigs head been thrown at Figo at the Camp Nou when he took a corner in front of the Barca fans became an image shown around the world.

Since then, things have calmed down in terms of the heat of the rivalry on match days, with footballing matters taking centre stage.

The 2 cub shave of course battled it out almost uninterrupted over domestic titles and trophies and they have become established as 2 of the most successful clubs on the continental stage but over the last couple of decades, it was the individual battle of for supremacy between Leo Messi of Barca and Ronaldo of Real Madrid that added to the spectacle of Clasico.

Both players thought of themselves as the best in the world both lived up to that moniker on a match by match basis so when it came to El Clasico’s it was a chance for both players to step up and show that they were the top player and with football fans across the globe often getting involved in pettiness over who was the better player, it brought about extra focus on derby days.
