Real Madrid DIRTY History Against FC Barcelona ► Barcelona vs Real Madrid in Franco Regime ||HD||

FC Barcelona history and

FC Barcelona history and the ACTUAL true history of Real Madrid CF & it's so called success |

~ Real Madrid vs Barcelona , Barcelona vs Real Madrid : The roots of the rivalry between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona is actually a fascinating study into the Spanish history of the early-to-mid 20th century. Real reason of the rivalry between the two clubs is because of the traditional standing of the two provinces politically. Madrid, as the capital of Spain and the seat of the royal family, was seen as the region promoting conservatism. Barcelona, as the capital of Catalonia, was the district which was at the forefront of ushering in the modern era in everything - fashion, republicanism etc. Hence a regional rivalry always existed between these two regions. Franco regime was centred, politically and economically, around Madrid. For this reason, Real Madrid, as the most successful team in the city, and the most prestigious team of entirely Castilian identity, was always likely to be the preferred team of the dictator. It was for this reason that the Generalísimo paid regular visits to watch the side in the 1950s and ’60s, especially during their most successful period when, inspired by the majestic Di Stefano, they won five consecutive European Cups between 1956 and 1960.

~ The First Ever Encounter : El Clasico , the first ever encounter between the two clubs occurred on May 13, 1902. Barcelona won thatencounter 3-1,owing to the "6 foreigners that they lined up", according to the official Real Madrid website. Classic case of sour grapes, thus kicking off the biggest rivalry in all of world football.

~ The Spanish Civil War : The war raged from 1936 to 1939, and was the major factor in shaping the rivalry as we see it today. General Francisco Franco successfully staged a coup and captured Madrid in 1939 to end the war. Since Barcelona bitterly fought Franco's policies, he held a particular anger against that region, often resorting to murder or torture to get his point across - that a different culture and society under his rule would not be tolerated. Now, football was growing as an outlet of the people's views and sentiments. Hence, the people of Catalonia started supporting FC Barcelona in hordes, just to show that they are united in their hatred of General Franco, and to celebrate their unique culture and languages. In fact, FC Barcelona became “mes que un club,” more than a club, to Catalans as well as to progressives and left-leaning Spaniards across the country.

~ The Di Stefano Signing : As if the war wasn't enough, the battle between Barcelona and Real Madrid for the signature of Alfredo Di Stéfano took the rivalry to new heights. In 1953, Di Stefano had been plying his trade in Colombia for Millionarios when he was spotted by both Spanish clubs. He actually belonged to the Argentine club River Plate, but was on loan to the Colombians due to a player’s strike in Argentina. Both clubs sent emissaries to sign him, and after long and protracted negotiations, FIFA ruled that FC Barcelona would sign Di Stefano. Here is where the government in the form of the Spanish Football Federation stepped in - they banned the signing of any foreign player in Spain, allowing Real to swoop in and agree a deal with Di Stefano. This led to an impasse, which was resolved when the Spanish Federation ruled that Di Stefano would be allowed to play four years in Spain, two for Barcelona and two for Real. Barcelona though, backed out of this deal (supposedly on the orders of their Franco-backed president), which allowed Real Madrid to become the sole owner of Di Stefano. The rest,as they say, is history, as he led Real Madrid to 8 league titles, but more importantly, 5 consecutive European crowns, leaving Barcelona in their wake. This left more than a bitter taste in FC Barcelona's fans' mouth.

~ The Death of Gamper : Joan Gamper the founder of FC Barcelona was banned from the club which led to his suicide.

~ Real Madrid 11-1 Barcelona : On Barcelona’s part, there is a story, also steeped in myth, which sums up the way they were perceived and treated by the regime. The story goes that, in 1943, after winning the first leg of a cup semi-final against Real Madrid 3-0, Barcelona’s players were paid a visit by one of Franco’s cronies, who reminded them that they were only allowed to play at all due to “the generosity of the regime”, and suggested in no uncertain terms that they ease off in the second leg. Real Madrid went on to win that game 11-1, by far the biggest win in Clásico history.



So Barca said no to Di Stephano?? I don't see how that's Madrid's fault

Lol I like seeing barka dogs in denial ? why did Barcelona win 8 la liga titles and 9 Copa del Reys during " The Franco era " explain that ,and made one European cup final , I thought Franco hated them if he did they wouldn't of won shit or he would dissolve the club , We never stoled Di Stefano , Di Stefano was own by River plate and Club Millonarios , Barcelona mange to agree on a deal with River plate but not Millonarios , but Madrid made a deal with both clubs and paid more money and that is why he played for Madrid , we stoled the European cups lol that so stupid ? Franco was the dictator of Spain not of all fucking Europe dumbfucks gaylona only one of the first 5 European cups Madrid won was hosted in Spain , that is why north Korea can't Rob oylmpic medals because the whole world would cancel the event and get mad at North Korea , it's funny how they say in the video Barcelona were bomb they were , but the capital Madrid was bomb even more in the Spanish civil war you gaylona fans think only Catalonia was effect that is why it's called a civil not Catalonia vs Spain but gaylona fans claim you know history ? , shitlona fans are pathetic and gay can't except where the kings of Spain and Europe , 34 la liga and 13 European cups enjoyed your shitty trebles and also enjoyed our 3 straight champions in row something shitlona will never do , what are you going to say Franco return from the grave ? , uploader we all know your a shitlona dick rider like I said enjoyed our 3 straight champions league trophy , keep making excuse for our success Madrid will always be kings of Spain and Shitlona fans keep making excuse haters Hala Madrid and " Visca I will never be better than you Lona "?

LIARS. Franco helped Barcelona more than any other team, specially economically. Let´s see: during the hard and violent part of Franco´s regime (1939-1960), Barcelona won 7 leagues and 6 cups, while Real Madrid won 4 leagues and 2 cups. The firts league won by Real Madrid was in 1954 (15 years after the regime started!!!). The only teams supported by Franco was Atletico (which was the official army football team) and thats why they have won 7 of their 10 leagues during Franco´s regime. The thing is that Franco wanted catalans to be quiet and happy and he used football (and many other things) for that. By the way, most of the catalans that where in Spain during that days were facist, very facist. Much more than people from Madrid (territorY that was the resilience until the end of the war). You are LIARS OR ILLITERATED.


Came here for the stupidity ?

Jefferson Huang

The sad fact is that Franco chose to corrupt Madrid and not Barcelona.

We still won more UCL s and laliga s than u. 13 UCL 18 Laliga to yours 5 UCL and 17 laliga. Franco can control Spain but not Europe. So if you wanna bark about history than we are still way better than Barca. Now you can bark about your Copa del reys.

Why do FC Barcelona and AC Milan have an England flag in their logo? | Oh My Goal

904 673 views | 29 Aug. 2019

There are logos we’ve

There are logos we’ve seen so many times, we hardly notice them anymore. We see them so often that they just remind us of a team, a goal, a memory, or a trophy. But each logo has its own part of mystery, its own secrets, its own story.

For instance, do you know why the English flag features on the badges of both AC Milan and FC Barcelona? Is it the same cross? You asked us for this video, so here it is!

Daniel Catallo

St Ambrose is correct. The Central Duomo of Milano is actually called St Ambrose Cathedral. He was the Bishop of Milano but that's the least of his accomplishments. He was a beekeeper and his Thesis on the separation of Church and State resonates to this day. If Popes had followed his direction, the world would be a much better place today.

Bull. We’re just such a dominant country.


Is it only me who realised because of this video ???

It's not A England flag.......done

Because both Italy and Spain technically colonized by England

Well, to be in the simplest way ever, the cross stands for the cross in which Christ died. And they used that as a mark of symbolism for Christian based clubs. As simple as that....apart from all the representations you've done. BUT NEVERTHELESS THE CROSS WON'T BE IN FIRST PLACE IF THERE WAS NO JESUS CHRIST! I felt that you want to be unbiased the best way possible and that is commendable. As simple as that..even more! Nice clip, by the way. Loved your soccer stories!

Muni Munito

I knew it b£for£

Sanjay Kr. Kaushik

Can u pls provide the link of the background music

Stefano Valente

It's not the "england flag". That's the st George cross, the original vessel of the Republic of GENOA. The English monarch paid an annual tribute to the doge of genoa to benefit the protection of the genoese fleet in the Mediterranean. It was adopted by the English fleet as an identification. St George is the patron of Catalonia, Barcelona explained. The a.c. Milan cross it's the st. Ambrose one, patron of Milan.

The Batman

Like se tifi milan

JuAn CuEvA

And Bologna, and Genoa, Sampdoria (in kit), etc

For milan it's a st ambrose cross which is the patron saint of the city. That's why even inter honour that with their away shirt ini their famous 2010 treble year. Its white jersey with red cross. They look like a crusaders lol

Ronaldinho and Ibrahimovic played four these two teams

Can we all appreciate the music change between barca and Milan

Di. Bollati

It's more likely from the early Knight Templars and the Freemasons who decided to design such a logo. Man. City have being given the color (sky) blue for a reason too..

Billy the GOAT

Most teams in Italy and Spain and in South America were started by English men and they were mostly cricket teams before football teams. You even forgot inter smh ??

Colin Brown

Genoa have the st George flag also

I was in Barcelona a few days ago and saw that cathedral

AC Milan and not "Milano" Carry the English flag on the logo cause the pioneers, founders, head staff and captain of the origins of ac Milan where all english

Note: title says why does Barca & Ac have an English flag on their badge not Northern Ireland flag !

rudrarup paul

Radu Boboc

Genoas cross is actually the Genovese flag. The old republic of Genoa had th flag that the english use nowadays and that was way before england even existed, england was just a dream at that time, they had only duchies and counties divided and at war between themselves, so we could assume that england stole the Genovese flag. From what i know the english that traded in the mediteranean sea in those times payed tribute tu use that flag for protection to the Dodge of Genoa.

Mark Chambers

Genoa have the England flag to

It's not the England flag... it's st. George cross, originally the flag of the Republic of Genoa. England had to ask permission to use their symbol. That's why you have the actual st. George cross on the Genoa football club crest...


What is the Italian song I can’t find it anywhere

Aidy Gooner

Genoa have St George's cross on their badge because that flag is actually GENOESE, which the English adopted as their national flag. ?


Beautful christan culture.....dont take it for granted guys.


St George cross ??????? and no although England use it as their flag, he was not English he never came to England once in his life,

Cholo Tajada

Thats the kind of videos we wang in youtube


Oh my god lol England flag ... Im not even gonna watch this video


Don't is the English flag but the Genova flag, later was take by the English. In italy we say : ignoranza in abbondanza. For the English people I don't hate you but England don't is ever the center of the world. Also in my city is used the cross of San Giorgio, but not because have some type of English connection. If we would say the truth is the English flag that have connection with the Genova flag.

What about Gary lineker? He played for barca

huhubu huhubub

Genoa has the flag because it was also Genoas flag when they was independent from Italy.


It’s obvious. If you ever payed attention to historic cities and religion you would know that the “England flag” is St. George’s Cross, who is the patron saint of England as well as Milan, Barcelona, Freiburg and many other places.

The country is home to the two top teams in the world, Football Club Barcelona, or “Barça,” and Real Madrid. Barça is a premier symbol of Catalan identity and pride, while Real Madrid is seen to represent the Spanish crown and Madrid’s rule over Catalonia. As the battle over Catalan independence hits crisis levels, AJ+’s Dena Takruri hangs out with Catalan soccer fans, for whom stadiums are a symbolic battleground over the future of this region.

Madre mia que forma de distorsionar la realidad. Suerte que nadie en el mundo se cree esta basura

Salad Axmed Nuur

now more americans know what is the difference between Real and Barca

Prashant Sharma

its not soccerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Aderinola Olamiju

It’s football

Juan Miguel Galindo Lladó

Real Madrid and Barça both show the union between football and Spanish politics. Even more if we think that both teams represent not the working class domination of themselves, but the high burgeoise one of there cities and both have seduced an incredible number of low classes people by tales of success, own interest and the possibility of being related to millionaire figures and enterprises.

Hiatorically, RM and Barça are the exemple of the ones of the top and the economical power seducing and lying the ones of the bottom, disgregating them by identity craps that has no sense and limitating his revindicative potential. Not criticizing football (which I like), but market and, specially, mass opium in what has developed.

Sorry if my English is not quite good ???, I'm not as marxist as you could think hahaha, it's just that football IS a good exemple of apropiation and disgregation of social movements.




There are also many Espanyol fans that want to vote

I'm a Barca fan though I knew nothing about this before watching this video. To be honest, I don't care.

Dexter Dédalo

Have you seen how tiny Catalunia actually is!?

Ry Rilo

Football was the common mans game but they've grown rich and are now multi national companies. If you are pro Catalan how can you represent the Union? So the politics gets dropped when it involves furthering their footballing career. Business comes before morals for a lot of sports ppl..except a few who become legends like Muhammad Ali or Colin Kaepernick.

Cataluña siempre ha sido y será españa. Que unos paletos digan indecencia en ub partido no significa que todos lo piensen....


Not all catalans want independence, they are a minority that uses the camp nou to be noticed

viva la catalunia!

The Catalans can never regain their independence, wanna know why? Because their Talisman is someone from Argentina. Dont fkin cry go and fight for your rights. No one gives you your land, you have to forcefully snatch it.

Ranya Putri

lol AJ+ must be regretting their support for Catalonia now that they're trying to support Israel and not recognising Palestine as a state and that they're condemning Spain for recognising it


Why can’t football be like how it was in the old days? Just playing for the joy of football and not for political or financial reasons.


Shame on Barca! It’s a sports club not political party!

alejandro B

When has football never been political? The same owners of our beloved football clubs are in and out of politics everyday, lobbying for capital.

khan lmao

It's football !!!

Franco saved Spain from putas rojas.


So horrible!
This has a lot of failures and it is so one sided!
More than half of what she said is wrong
Instead of talking with one side of the coin, try to talk with both of them


Selfish Barcelona funs football it's not politics.


This is so biased, pure manipulation.

Spain didn't conquered Catalonia, Catalonia has never been an kingdom of its own, for starters.

The referendum was illegal for secession goes against the Spanish Constitution.

They speak their own language, and have their own flag and traditions... so what? Most places in Spain are just like that. Most places in Europe are like that for that matter, but that doesn't mean they all must become independent states.

So biased, I'm out.

Barcelona is a team of freedom fighters

The referendum was not a democratic act, it was an illegal act

This article is obviously bias. Franco suppressed every one.

My grandfather died fighting him.

Franco pardon Barcelona’s football debt. Franco was awarded by the club itself.

This article is done from the view of the 50% of the population in Barcelona that wants to separate. Do they hold on to Franco to keep that bad memory producing the hate they need to recruit.

This person did zero digging into the truth. The Barcelona club uses political tactics to mar everyone else.

The video es all on the opinion of the Barcelona fans and totally ignored the other first division team Espagnol.

This report is lazy and it is a joke.


that why barca is MES QUE UN CLUB

denis okelo

So much respect to Espanyol

Ok, Dena you are very attractive. You win, subscribed.


Soccer? What's that?

Mes Que Un Club

Nobody gives a shit what some immigrants arount the asspanyol stadium think about Catalonia independence. 88% of the population inside Catalonia are pro-independence, that region deserves it cause they're trying to achieve it with democracy(referendum), as simple as that.

HALA Madrid

Ruben Pereira

Contrary to what most people believe Franco was an Atletico Madrid supporter for most of his dictatorial reign. Atletico is considered to represent the Spanish air force. Franco switched allegiance to Real Madrid only after our European domination in the 1950s. So the "Real Madrid is Franco's club" narrative is a little flawed but not incorrect nevertheless.

Diana Martín

First get right information and stop bringing nazi catalán propaganda.



kahl drogo

Athletes should and have the right to their political opinions like any other individual. They just happen to have a better platform to voice their opinions and be heard and that’s a good thing if they stand for freedom and nonviolent protest

King Messi

Madrid is a corruption club ..win all UCL by corruption..
