The most awaited match of the yr in Spain will be played on an awkward day: Monday. A hostile environment is anticipated in the Camp Nou stadium from Genuine Madrid’s coach Jose Mourinho, who is not welcomed in Barcelona.
Yr after 12 months the match among the two most significant groups in Spain awakens the precise exact same passion in between the enthusiasts from all all around the entire world, that anxiously wait for the two video games that are disputed throughout every single tournament. For the fourth consecutive period the initial game of “El Clasico” -Spanish for Traditional- will be disputed in the Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona, exactly where Actual Madrid’s last road victory was back in October 22 of 2006, when Raul and van Nistelrooy scored 1 aim each and every for the -2 win.
The previous two seasons have been nothing at all but best for Barcelona, that besides successful two consecutive La Liga titles, they have also swept Real Madrid in their last four confrontations, which incorporates the most memorable one particular in Barcelona’s historical past: a six-2 on the street that represents the greatest scoring suffered by the whites in El Clasico background.
On their previous check out to Madrid, the red and blue crew didn’t win by a bulging score, but that didn’t make the reduction much less unpleasant for True Madrid, as it created a 1 stage difference between them which was enough for Barcelona to crown themselves as the amount 1 staff in Spain once again, in a time that will be remembered as the 99 points Liga -given that that’s how many factors it took them to win the championship.
In their work to set an conclude to Barcelona’s supremacy, the white group employed previous Inter de Milan coach Jose Mourinho, a man who is commonly linked with the word success. The history between Barcelona and the Portuguese coach is 1 of enjoy and dislike, as he worked for the club from 1996 to 2000 as an interpreter for coach Bobby Robson first, and then for Louis van Gaal. During that time he did not only discovered from the finest, but also played a position as an assistant coach, successful the Copa Catalunya title below van Gaal’s tuition and the fans’ appreciation in 2000.
But that appreciation that the Barcelona followers felt for Mou came to an conclude in the 2004-05 UEFA Champions League season, when his group Chelsea eradicated Barcelona (four-3) in the 1st knockout round. One year later, in the same competitors and at the identical instance the dislike for the Portuguese coach grew when Barcelona had their revenge against Chelsea (two-three on the aggregate), and Mou’s comments have been not welcomed, as he claimed that Barcelona only won due to the fact in the 1st sport of the playoffs (2-one on the aggregate) Del Horno had been expelled. He said that 11 in opposition to 11 things would have been various, and that Messi had fooled the referee with a bit of theatricality and that resulted in Del Horno’s expulsion.
The story had a new chapter in the 2009-ten UEFA Champions League semifinals where Inter, below the command of Mou, eradicated Barcelona (3-2 on the aggregate) in the Camp Nou, and crushed their desires of disputing the final that was heading to be held in the Santiago Bernabeu stadium, True Madrid’s property discipline.
This time Actual Madrid’s coach Mou has tried using to open a verbal war by means of the media from Barcelona – without having success- to mentally unbalance them. His attempts have not been efficient given that Barcelona’s coach Joseph Guardiola has made the decision to stay at the margin of his statements, and has informed his players not to pronounce themselves about it.
The Portuguese has created these a hostile surroundings that assures that Monday’s game will be played at a great intensity and a lot of involvement from the crowd. Even with of the outcome a single points is for confident, the detest that Barcelona supporters experience for Mou is much from about, and you can assume a lot more spicy statements from him.
