FC Barcelona vs Real Madrid: A Brief History Of El Clasico

The world’s greatest football rivalry gets underway for the first time this season on Monday as the two Spanish giants contest El Clasico once again. Read on for a brief overview of the rivalry between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona.

History of the Rivalry between Barcelona and Real MadridWith football, as with any sport, there is no more powerful reflection of greatness than to compete against a powerful arch-rival, a nemesis whose very existence fuels passion and against whom one’s own greatness is either confirmed or found wanting. Seabiscuit, for example, had War Admiral. Muhammad Ali had Joe Frazier. Lance Armstrong had Jan Ullrich.

Such a nemesis serves to enhance, perhaps even define, a competitor’s greatness, and no competition can be considered truly successful unless the nemesis has been vanquished. And yet, as so often occurs in titanic sporting tussles, greatness may be confirmed for loser and winner alike.

Few rivalries in sport can compare with the spectacle, the passion, and the sheer football brilliance of  a match between Spanish football titans Real Madrid FC and FC Barcelona.  And any meeting between the two is known simply, elegantly, and without overstatement as “El Clasico.”

El Clasico: FC Barcelona,…“More than a Club!”

Sunday November 28 2010,
Tags: FC Barcelona, La Liga, El Clasico, Real Madrid
A brief history of FC Barcelona, ahead of El Clasico. Why is Barcelona 'More Than A Club'?

Barcelona's slogan - Mes Que Un Club. Mes Que Un Club!

It’s a motto that was coined quite recently in the club’s history. In January of 1968 Narcis de Carreras, newly-appointed president of Barcelona football club, upon making his acceptance speech, gave voice to the slogan “mes que un club!”

It reveals a sentiment that has been at the heart of the club’s philosophy almost since its beginnings.

To the people of Catalonia, FC Barcelona serves as a haven of Catalan culture, and in a wider sense stands for democracy and human rights.

El Clasico: Barcelona vs Real Madrid – Advantage FC Barcelona

FC Barcelona must prepare to run its engine at full capacity this Monday. Hosts and defenders of the title, we analyze what might give Barcelona a decisive edge over Madrid ahead of El Clasico.
It's undeniable much of Barcelona's success has to do with the outstanding individual capabilities of most of its players. Having scored 33 goals in 12 Liga games so far, Barcelona's offensive firepower has been growing week after week reaching its peak last week against Almeria.

But it's the excellent Blaugrana team work that's helped Barcelona keep up with Real Madrid's pace, standing only one point below the top and there's no doubt this game will be regarded as an early final for both squads.

From the security of the back line to the multiple angles of attack, in this article we run an in-depth analysis of what could give Barcelona the needed advantage to claim the top.

El Clasico: A Look At FC Barcelona Without Lionel Messi

Friday November 26 2010,
Tags: La Liga, Barcelona, Lionel Messi, Pep Guardiola, El Clasico
"The Lionel Messi-dependence is a blessing", said Barcelona's Pep Guardiola a few weeks ago. It might also be Real Madrid's key to success in El Clasico come Monday.
Only two months ago, Lionel Messi had to be replaced when playing against Atletico and everyone feared for the worst. It was only one week after Hercules celebrated an unexpected victory at the Camp Nou.

Only 10 days later, Messi was back on the fields and from that moment on, he's been the undisputed leader of Barcelona's attack, scoring 10 goals in 13 games.

Lionel Messi also tasted glory as he scored the winning goal in the Brazil vs Argentina friendly match 10 days ago in the very last minute of the game after a brilliant individual maneuver that left behind all Carioca defenders.

During El Clasico, nullifying Messi might consume most of Real Madrid's defensive resources and does not guarantee the Argentine won't break free from any personal mark. In this article, we analyze what might happen if Barcelona can not rely on Messi to lead the attack.

El Clasico: Keys For Real Madrid To Defeat FC Barcelona

Barcelona has only lost two Liga games in the last year and a half. What should Real Madrid's Jose Mourinho consider to deliver the third strike?

Out of the last 50 Liga matches, Atletico Madrid and Hercules have been the only two squads that have managed to leave Barcelona empty-handed. Shall we consider Copa del Rey and Champions League matches too, it's 66 games and five defeats, three of them at the Camp Nou.

In an attempt to understand what could have gone wrong, it's impossible the role Lionel Messi is expected to play in this game. La Pulga is only two goals away from becoming one of the top 10 Clasico strikers of all time.

Seven goals in the last six Clasico games is the flawless record of the young Argentinean against Madrid. Considering he's already scored a hat-trick at the Camp Nou as well as a double in Madrid, what can Jose Mourinho's Merengues do to defeat FC Barcelona at home?

Defining Football Star Zlatan Ibrahimovic: Arrogant Trickster or Charmingly Brave?

Thursday September 23 2010,
Tags: Zlatan Ibrahimovic, FC Barcelona, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Serie A, La Liga
Just as Cristiano Ronaldo, AC Milan’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic faces massive criticism from the public because of his “brash” attitude. But really, why do people believe he is so arrogant?

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, a one-time Inter Milan and Barcelona player. Now an AC Milan star...On several occasions, Ibra has been reproached by football personalities and followers for his indomitable spirit. The Swedish forward is said to have a uniquely divisive attitude in the dressing rooms, which explains why he has been going through hectic transfers in the past few years.

Despite his negative outlook, he is still a big target for Europe’s top clubs; and behind this fact lies a mysterious question. Why would such a “cocky” player be wanted by top sides if his moral fiber was as disapproving as many believe it to be? Perhaps this is simply because the world has unduly translated into arrogance the typical combination of high confidence and mental power, which has made Ibrahimovic an incomprehensible player.

Tags: FC Barcelona, Panathinaikos, Champions League

Yet from a deeper prospect, this match at the Camp Nou will also show if the Spanish giants have bounced back from Saturday’s La Liga defeat or not. Both sides were in action at the weekend, and while Barcelona faced newly-promoted side Hercules CF in La Liga, Panathinaikos fought against Aris Thessaloniki FC. Below is a brief recap of both matches.

It was the Catalans’ first home defeat since their Copa del Rey exit earlier this year in January. Looking at the fixture on Saturday, the majority…

Friday August 20 2010,
Tags: FC Barcelona, Sevilla, Spanish Supercopa
La Liga winners FC Barcelona will face Copa del Rey champions Sevilla in the second leg of the Spanish Supercopa on Saturday evening at the Camp Nou. Barcelona suffered a 3-1 defeat at Sevilla last week in the first leg, but Pep Guardiola will have to force his army to overturn this harsh result if they are to begin their 2010/11 La Liga season with an early prestigious trophy in their hands.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the Supercopa vs SevillaSpanish Supercopa: Sevilla-Barcelona, What happened in the first leg

A weaker Barcelona side containing a number of Barcelona B players managed to take the lead against Sevilla on August 14, on 20 minutes. Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic amazingly received a pass from Maxwell before placing the ball past Andre Palop at the surprise of his opposing defenders. Instead of killing the Andalusians, the introduction of Lionel Messi rather strengthened the hosts who started who feel the game’s powerful heat.

After the hour mark, Brazilian superstar Luis Fabiano stunned the Barcelona defense with a low shot, and Malian legend Kanoute then came off the bench to bury the Catalans. It was with the nice help of Alvaro Negredo and Diego Perotti that the 2008 African Footballer of the Year was capable of scoring a late double to give Sevilla a 2-goal advantage ahead of the Spanish Supercopa’s second leg at the Camp Nou.

Barcelona vs Valladolid – La Liga Match Preview

Thursday May 13 2010,
Tags: FC Barcelona, Valladolid, La Liga
It is the very last day of La Liga in the 2009/10 season, and FC Barcelona will welcome Real Valladolid at the Camp Nou on Sunday at 17:00 GMT, exactly at the same time as Real Madrid face Malaga away from home.

Barcelona trainingBarcelona are just one victory away from the league title, and they will need to make the last decisive step to rule Spain for the second time in a row. They are a point above Los Blancos, and hence, a draw against Valladolid could cost them the Spanish League trophy. As for the Pucela, they are 3 points from the bottom even though they are in 16th position, and therefore, they could fall all the way down to relegation if ever they failed to fight back against the title holders.

Barcelona – Confident, Prepared, Prudent

Barcelona are aware that achieving their task successfully this weekend will give them their one and only cup this season, and they are quite confident that they will be able to sadden Real Madrid with a triumph over Valladolid. Despite the fact that Valladolid have collected several unsatisfying results this season, Barcelona have affirmed that they will not allow their mentality to be harmed by complacency–explaining that Valladolid were also possessing a bunch of reasons to play for on the last match-day.

Sevilla vs Barcelona – La Liga Match Preview

With only two matches left in La Liga, the title race has appeared to be hotter than ever at the top of the table, but Barcelona can once again stamp their authority in the Primera División by defeating Sevilla at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Saturday.

Sevilla fighting against Barcelona in the Copa del ReySevilla - Facts and Stats from the home side

The Andalusian club has managed to take a Champions League place in the top four with 60 points, placed ahead of 5th place Mallorca who have 59 points. Sevilla have proved to be a difficult side this season, although they have also shown a lot of struggle in their league campaign.

Sevilla only have 18 wins in 36 league games which include 6 draws and 12 losses. Their home record looks acceptable, having triumphed 14 times at home, drawn once, and lost thrice. It is thus away from home that their tests weaken them, as they can only boast of 3 wins in their name, and 7 draws as well as 8 defeats.

Luckily, their game this weekend will be decided at home against La Liga leaders Barcelona, and Sevilla can look ahead to retaining their recent good shape so as to keep their opportunities of playing in the Champions League next season. Nevertheless, results popping-out of their last matches show what could be referred to as inconsistency, in view of the fact that they have snatched 9 points over their last 15 possible due to 2 stoppable failures.

Barcelona vs Tenerife - La Liga Match Preview

Tags: FC Barcelona, Tenerife, La Liga
Spanish Primera Division leaders Barcelona will host Tenerife at the Camp Nou on Tuesday at 19:00 GMT.

Carlos Puyol with Sergi Busquet and Bojan against TenerifeBarcelona are no longer present in the Champions League, and for that reason, they have now been fighting with all their strength to at least win La Liga title. The Catalans are in danger of losing the pole position to their rivals Real Madrid if they fail to take every chance they have before the end of the season, but they could be one step closer to accomplishing their mission with a triumph at home against Tenerife.

Barcelona - A good form

Bottom side Tenerife should certainly not be a threat for the league leaders. Barcelona destroyed Villarreal away from home at the weekend 4-1 thanks to a super performance from their Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi. The defending Copa del Rey champions may have not been able to show off their might in Europe this season, but happily, they still have hopes of finishing their season with one cup in their bag at least.

Villarreal vs Barcelona - La Liga Match Preview

Saturday May 1 2010,
Tags: FC Barcelona, Villarreal, La Liga
Champions League hopes are over for FC Barcelona and they can now focus on their last competition which is La Liga. They face Villarreal this weekend at the Estadio El Madrigal on Saturday night.

Barcelona vs Villarreal on January 2 at the Camp NouBarcelona – No right to lose

The Catalans are just one point above Real Madrid in La Liga standings after they failed to take all 3 points away from home when they came up against Espanyol two weeks ago. This weekend, the Yellow Submarines appear to be a dangerous side to beat, but Barcelona have only one option, which is to win.

Losing might worsen their situation since they have been striving remarkably in the past few days. The Catalans won 3-1 against Xerez last Saturday, but they got disqualified from the Champions League subsequent to their incapability to overturn a 3-1 score line which they suffered at the San Siro on April 20.

Barcelona vs Deportivo Xerez – La Liga Match Preview

Barcelona will play an early game against lowly side Deportivo Xerez on Saturday in La Liga, in preparation of their Champions League game against Inter Milan next Wednesday.

Lionel Messi

Day 33

This game will serve them as a chance to keep their lead at the top of La Liga standings, especially in view of the fact that they were unable to grab a win last weekend away to Espanyol. The Catalans drew 0-0 against their city rivals at the disappointing of their fans.

Barcelona – Get ready

This should normally be an easy game for Barca who have all their players available for Saturday apart from Andres Iniesta and Dani Alves. But the most significant thing in the end will be the vision that emerges from the 90 minutes at the Camp Nou–which will hence show, more or less clearly, the outcome of their next task at home to Inter Milan next week.

The true Champion’s League Final - Inter Milan vs FC Barcelona

Tuesday April 20 2010,
Tags: Inter Milan, FC Barcelona, Champions League, Messi, Mourinho
UEFA Champions League Semi-Final Preview Inter vs Barca Live. This is it. The Champions League Final is here - Yes it’s Inter Milan vs Barcelona.

Jose Mario dos Santos Felix MourinhoNo. Actually, it’s a bit premature since it’s only the first leg of the semi-final, but many will tell you that Barcelona and Inter Milan are the two big teams they want to see. So for many it is the true final.

Don´t expect great football match today. With Jose Felix Mourinho, you can expect a gritty, closed defensive match full of tactics to neutralize the opponent, but this isn’t just any opponent - this is Messi & Co. Many are betting that Mourinho will direct the Stadium operations staff to relocate one of FC Barcelona buses and park it behind Julio Cesar.

The current Italian and Spanish champions also faced each other in the group stage of this Champions League campaign. Inter Milan were incapable of scoring in both matches. A nil-nil draw in Milan and a 2-0 defeat in Barcelona left Mourinho with only praise for Guardiola and the Catalan giants. In those two matches, Barcelona’s superiority was obvious, as they amassed a possession of over 60% over both games.

You may think that these statistics would work in favor of Barcelona in boosting their confidence. And so will Mourinho, who will hope to implant a false sense of confidence in their opponents. A few compliments, comments and outlandish statements from the special one are sure to precede and follow this first leg. Watch this space.

Recent Form

The last 4 matches between these two sides have not favored Inter Milan who has yet to score a single goal. Inter Milan have drawn twice and lost twice in the Champions League this decade. So maybe it’s time for a positive change for the milanese. Mourinho will certainly inject this belief in their squad, and remind them of recent results and their dominance over Chelsea.

Both teams are in great form. Inter Milan have been playing with determination and purpose, which has seen them undefeated in their last 6 games in 3 competitions, having won 5 and drawn 1 and with a goal tally of 10-2 in their favor. FC Barcelona has also been in excellent form led by their mercurial striker: the amazing Leo Messi. Their goal tally for their last 6 matches is 15-4 in their favor with 4 wins and 2 draws. But their last game this past weekend saw them draw away to Espanyol in the Catalan derby.  Dropping 2 massively important points in their battle for La Liga and they were lucky to escape with only a 0-0 draw.

Inter Milan vs Barcelona – Champions League Match Preview

Monday April 19 2010,
Tags: Inter Milan, FC Barcelona, Champions League
Fervent football fans will have to wait until April 20 to regain a feel of the UEFA Champions League, and among the first two stadiums to witness the return of Europe’s biggest club competition is the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, where Inter Milan face Spanish giants FC Barcelona in the semifinals.

Inter Milan manager Jose Mourinho watching his side against Barcelona in the Champions LeagueInter Milan vs Barcelona – Back in the group stage, first leg

Both clubs met in the group stage of the Champions League this season, and coincidently, the first leg of that particular encounter happened at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. Sadly for Barcelona, despite having several chances to destroy the hosts, former Inter Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic had one of his worse days, and hence, the defending champions could only settle for a 0-0 draw.

In that game, French striker Thierry Henry seemed in an extremely weak physical condition, but still, Manager Pep Guardiola agreed to add the former Arsenal striker to his starting line-up. Lionel Messi was not at his best, and as he was unable to do anything special for the visitors, he was incapable of breaking the deadlock.

Barcelona vs Deportivo La Coruña – La Liga Match Preview

Wednesday April 14 2010,
Tags: FC Barcelona, Deportivo La Coruna, La Liga
Spanish League leaders FC Barcelona will come up against Deportivo La Coruna at the Camp Nou after their historic triumph at the Bernabeu Stadium at the weekend when they defeated Real Madrid 2-0. Barcelona will be welcoming La Coruna as part of their challenge of Day 32 in La Liga, and they’ll need to be cautious to maintain their position as present rulers.

Barcelona – Returns and Absences

Barcelona against Deportivo La CorunaBarcelona won 2-0 away to Los Blancos on Saturday night following goals from Lionel Messi and Pedro, and fortunately for them, these two aces are eligible for this evening’s game. The major problem for the Catalans now is the ruling-out of midfielder Andres Iniesta.

The Spaniard has again been diagnosed with an injury which could – this time – keep him in the doctors’ room for up to a month. More precisely, Iniesta suffered a hamstring injury just after having recovered from a 2-week injury which he had obtained earlier on.

"He is sad and down,” said Manager Pep Guardiola on Andres Iniesta. “We want him back as soon as possible, and let us hope we can take him to the final (of the Champions League) at the Bernabeu.
