Origin of EL Clasico:
Real Madrid and Barcelona’s rivalry began to take shape as far back as 1902, even since one of their first meetings at a tournament held in honor of King Alfonso XIII. The hostility continued to grow during the Franco era, When Real Madrid was seen as a symbol of Spanish nationalism, while FC Barcelona was the strongest expression of Catalan pride and identity. Things haven’t changed too much since then. In a nutshell, as long as the rivalry between Castile and Catalonia will carry on, El Clasico will always be more than a football match.
