A soccer game in Spain

El fútbtol es lo más importante entre las cosas menos importantes.  Jorge Valdano


On our recent trip to Spain, we wanted to go to watch live one of the best soccer leagues: La Liga. The BBVA Spanish soccer league, known as La Liga is played by 20 teams.  Each team plays two rounds against the other teams, once home and once away for 38 weeks, each week is called a jornada.  After the 38 weeks the team with the highest amount of points will be the Campeón de Liga.

While we were planning our trip we realized that there was a game to be play during our stay in Madrid, but not any game, the derbi madrileño. A game between the two soccer teams from Madrid: Real Madrid and Atletico de Madrid. This is more than a game, is an old rivalry between los blanco (the whites) and los rojiblancos (the red and whites). 


The derbi usually has season records attendance and tickets sold out fast. We couldn't be more excited when we got the tickets.  

The day of the game, we took the train to the Vicente Calderón stadium, the closer we got to the stadium the more rojiblancos were on board, people from all ages, many father and sons and even grand fathers and whole families.  Except for a few, the whole stadium was cheering for Atletico, all wearing red made. 

From the moment the players where at the field the passion was afloat.  The stadium is impressive and the ambience is hard to beat, the crowd sang and cheered the whole 90 minutes.  Everything is debated and criticized from goals to plays of the opposite team.   Non stop emotions during the whole game. 

Real Madrid dominated the first half of the game and scored early in the game by Karim Benzema.   A penalti kick was stopped by the Real Madrid goalkeeper, Keylor Navas. The Atletico managed the second half and it ended in a tie.  

As Mexicans we grew up around the passion that soccer creates and as Real Madrid fans this was one in a lifetime experience that won't be easily forgotten.  HALA MADRID!

  4. The anticipation of blocking a shot, intercepting a pass or making an amazing shot on goal motivates players to run faster and harder than just going for a regular run. 토토사이트
