David Fernández Borbalán has again the "honour"..

David Fernández Borbalán issued three red cards in his 1st clásico

Everyone knows the background behind probably the most traditional and best match on this planet. When FC Barcelona and Real M
adrid meet, it is not only football. It can be furthermore seen as the eruption and showplace of political issues concerning "La dictadura de Franco", Catalonia's pursuit of "independencia" and so on.

An overview of "los clásicos" since the millennium:

In 2011, these two teams met six times, six pieces of exciting football, but also fights, red cards and helpless refereeing. It did not matter whether Spanish referees were in charge of this match or European top referees like Wolfgang Stark and Frank de Bleeckere. They all had their problems in a match which normally controls itself. "El clásico" is of course always fascinating but after the first semifinal, I had no lust anymore to watch the remaining matches. The reason behind that was a helpless Real Madrid side which did not know how to beat Barca by playing football. The "special one", José Mourinho, was the best example for that. Prickling an opponent's eye was more important than showing his team that Barca can be beaten.


The gap between both teams heavily decreased in this season; Real seem to be the favourites to win today's match which will be handled by David Fernández Borbalán who had many problems in his first clásico in the last season's Supercopa Final. 
However, one has to state that a very good perfomance without mistakes is nearly impossible in a match where the involved teams mostly favour boxing instead of playing football.
The man from Almería in the Comunidad Autónoma of Andalusia has been ranked as no.2 in Spain by rfef closely behind Carlos Velasco Carballo. After two nominations for CL matches, two clásicos and this ranking, a promotion is only a question of time on UEFA level as well.

  2. What is your bet?
    I think: 7 yellows and 3-1 for Real. But I do not hope it..

  3. Great choice by RFEF. Fernandez Borbalan is the best ref in Spain now. Undiano Mallenco and Velasco Carballo are far behind him. Good luck, David, good luck!
    BTW, 9 yellows, 2 reds and 3-0 Real. I will be with Barcelona of course... but I think, that Real is stronger at the moment.

    Hi Suricate,

    i suppose, with "3-1 for Real" you referred to the number of goals to be scored and not to the number of red cards to be shown. ;-))

    Kind regards from Vienna,
    Peter

  8. and UEFA does not learn, again Ivan Bebek in a good EL match...
    Fautrel for Schalke.
    Matej Jug in PSG-Athletic could be interesting, Dean in Lazio-Sporting will be colourful ;)

  9. Hi Suricate,

    why do you classify Ivan Bebek's match as a "good" one? Both clubs, RSC Anderlecht and FC Lokomotiv Moskva, already qualified for the next round, hence this encounter is de facto meaningless.

    Kind regards from Vienna,
    Peter

  10. It is inconsistent that he gets any match at all, does not matter whether a good or bad one. Good not due to the situation, then I would have called it important. But two good teams which play forward, a good stadium / atmosphere etc. After his Bilbao-RB match and the several weak perfomances before, the chapter Bebek should be closed. Strahonja, Vucemilovic, Vuckov, that is the future.
