FC Sevilla – fear nobody

A great game is about to come SevillaBarcelona , for the Super Cup of Europe- tonight. I was about to start with some stats, but this is information, that you can find in another sites. Let’s try this way- there is a trend for nearly 10 years, that Spanish teams do dominate in the European tournaments.

It was long ago when everyone was afraid and scared from the English teams. Yes, they do have many stars playing in UK, Premier League , but when it comes to European football scene,Spanish are far away from the others.

The perfect example is Sevilla. They are wining the Europa League title, just for the sport. For the last 10 years, they won this trophey 4 times. They had competition, in the previous edition of the tournament only from the team of Zenith. All other games were easily won, including the final against the brave team of Dnipro( who previously had kicked out Napoli from the semi-finals stage of eliminations). FC Sevilla is a rare diamond , that brights that strong, that could be seen in different directions of the Universe.

FC Barcelona, they are too strong to play in whatever championship you may think of. Just few names and words will be of no need : Rakitic, Alves, Messi, Neymar and Suarez. Actually , I am a keen fan of Real Madrid, but at this time and point of view, Barce do have one of the best teams in the world, also one of the most loyal fans. Everyone of us, do perfectly remember, how easy they won the final agains Juventus. We also do remember the tears of Pirlo ( a genius with the ball). With few words – Barcelona is a dream team.

My expectations from tonight games are that Sevilla will try to score an early goal , and will press their opponents hard. Barcelona is very strong , when its players do pass the ball for a long period of time and have a smashing ball possession , something like 65% -75% of the regular playing time. One of the main players for Barca is Rakitic, he will be playing against his former team-mates from Sevilla. He is very special and rare football layer, who is creating magic and magnificent passes , no matter how many defenders he has around. Neymay is injured and he will be substituted by Pedro. Every single one of us expects a lot from Messi, tonight is his time to show , why he is the best football player in the world.

At the end, I will allow myself to give you some betting advice. It will be a game with many goals and corners. Both teams play very attractive and open game. I think that Sevilla will take the Super Cup. They already had won against Barcelona for the same Cup in 2006.

Wish you many nice and wonderful emotions with the Europa Super Cup final, many winning and many smiles after the end of this brilliant game, which is so great expected. 

 

Great football derbies

It is very passionate and satisfactory to write about such a great theme. Football derbies is something unique, something of its own, something that has to be felt. When the years are passing, you analyze and see that this is not just a religion, this is something bigger that the fans, players , presidents of clubs and teams, it is an internal love and insomnia.

I will start with the insomnia. Most of the ultra fans, before such games of grandeur and glory, do not sleep for a week or even for a whole month. Can you imagine what power and energy it is ? You think how to make better choreography, how to sing more, which , what and how many numerous banners you will wave during the match? There are many questions and one determination and moving power – the ultimate and after every single derby, growing love to the team of your heart.

It is a theme that will have no end , this is just the first article. As you perfectly now on every continent, in every country , in every town or city there are derbies, clashes, rivalries . In future, I will do my best and to have a post on one of the most intense, dramatic and not-normal derbies from all around the world. I will just mention some , with the promise of mine that in the near future , there will be specific and detailed article about the most popular ones:

1. LazioRoma : this is the battle for the eternal city . Whole Rome is becoming like a boiling pot, days before the derby is coming. There are clashed among the ultras of both teams, also too many police forces are concentrated in the hot points in the capital of Italy.

2. PartizanCrvena Zvezda : the battle for Beograd. When these two opponents are playing , it is like a war. They also compete in basketball. In basketball halls , the football ultras usually support their teams, and some of the times the games got postponed, because of different reasons, as you can imagine and predict.

3. LevskiCska : this is the Bulgarian derby , which also gains and concentrates lots of energy and power in the capital of Bulgaria. One of the teams was created 34 years before the other. The other one was created by the communist party , and their color is red. The eternal fight between ” blue” and ” red” ideas is definitely seen , shown and performed here, on this stage. From 09 September 2015, the red team does not exist anymore, there are many teams with this name now. The one who is playing in BG premier league is Litex – Etropole.

4. Dinamo ZagrebHajduk Split : this is definitely the most intense and passionate derby of Croatia.Dinamo is the better team now, from 5 and more years. If you go to this marvelous country you can see graffiti of the two most powerful fractions of both rivalry teams : Bad Blud Boys and Torcida Split. When the derby is on its way, police forces are very careful, because there are many fights between the fans.

5. Boca JuniorsRiver Plate : this is something from another dimension. Because of the hot blood of Argentinians , there are people killed, when those opponents are playing. I remember a video, I saw in the net , in ” La Bonbonera” . The fans of Boca where singing, jumping and lightening torches  an hour or an hour and half before the start of the game. They are totally mad.

6. OlympiakosPanathiniakos : it is the battle for the capital of Greece -Athens. It is one of those games, which you should go and feel. I had e friend , who explained me in details what is to be on one or the other side , and what is total madness , and people devoted to their eternal and forever burning love for their local team.

7. Real MadridBarcelona: this is something immense . It started with a political ideas , and opponents where on the the total different positions. The team from the capital, the royal one, and on the other hand Barselona , who always wanted their freedom i.e they made a referendum to get excluded from the borders of Spain and wanted to create separate country – Catalunya.

8. Zenith St. PetersburgSpartak Moscow : it is something huge . It is a rivalry with 300 of years lasting. Saint Petersburg was the old capital of Russia . Here we have again the opposition of right and left ideas, the blues against the reds. It is one of the most fierce derbies in Eastern Europe.

9. FlamengoVasco da Gama : it is something that arranges the whole nations, also knows as the derby of the millions ( because both teams have the largest fan masses in Brazil). When we speak about South America , it is something beyond any one imagination.

10. BenficaSporting Lisboa : it is the derby of the capital of Portugal – Lisboa. Here there is a common thing as in South America : fans are making noise all the 90 minutes , before the games , and it is like you are in the middle of celebrating of Chineese New Year . It is amazing.

11. ArsenalTottenham , ChelseaManchester United , Manchester UnitedManchester City, LiverpoolEverton,  BirminghamAston Villa. Actually in UK there are plenty of derbies and it is great to what a games like this, not only in Premier League , but also in the lower divisions.

12. Borussia DortmundShalke 04 : it is the derby of Ruhr. Both teams are from that region, and have one of the most passionate, powerful and mad fans in Germany. I have to add here the rivalry between Dortmund and Bayern Munich. It is on Euroean stage and also on local German one. The team that can beat Bayern in every single game , no matter of the tournament is Borussia Dortmund( you all remember the semi-final game for DFB Pokal, when no one counted Dortmund that have power and mentality to go furhter).

13. Urawa Red DiamondsGamba Osaka : we move east to Japan. All I can see is that I am impressed by both teams and the behavior of their fans. When football and passion are going hand by hand, promises for great games and derbies appear on the horizon.

In a conclusion , I want to apologize to those of you , who don’t see their favorite team here . I had written some starting lines for the derbies, which I heard, read and have opinion about. If you have any further proposal , I will be glad to read it.

We are all slaves to one faith, one religion, one passion and one goal: our favorite team to win. But when the adorable team wins in the derby , this is the miracle of all miracles , this is the top of the world . It is indescribable , you just have to go to the game, sing with your friend , wave the banner, light up the torches and shout till you cannot speak , when the winning goal is scored.
