Rival Reviews: A Real Madrid Superfan Reviews A Barcelona Jersey

Real Madrid fans are unique. As supporters of the most successful club in the history of Europe — if not the world — they look down on all others, especially that pesky club from Catalonia.

The only club that can really challenge Los Blancos’ superiority in Spain is, of course, Barcelona, so the rivalry is understandable intense. No other team brings out the best (or worst) in Real.

He creates goals for teammates, yes, but he generates attacks no one else can see with agility and raw skill.
