There is only one footballer in the current squad who was born when Real lifted their last title. Except Moya, the rest didn’t even exist. It could be that Monreal or Silva they were a vital project of their parents. Maybe Illarramendi or For your they were on a long-term plan to come into the world. And surely the entire constellation of young people who today aspire to be heirs of the champions, were still the product of a very distant reality. The parents of most royalists then thought that everything was yet to be written. A sensation similar to what the Oyarzabal, Zubeldia, Aritz
Elustondo, Zubimendi or Isak, at the gates of a date with history like the Super Cup.
The downward path that Real is developing this season admits a hiatus. The Spain Supercup Txuri Urdin reappears in life with the air of a talisman tournament. It is the second time that the Real takes part. The first was in ’82. It was the inaugural edition and the champion was the Ormaetxea, in Atotxa.
Two games away from a title, the remnants of the glorious era flourish. La Real aspires to be a champion by dusting off the trunk of memories and wanting to smash what any past time was better. It is a feat that has resisted him for 34 years. When Arconada stopped the penalty at Quique
Bouquets which ended with the ’87 Cup in the realistic showcase.
La Real travels to Córdoba today conspired to break with the established script. Winning Barcelona would mean the pass to the ninth final in the history of the entity. He has played seven, six in the Cup and the one that beat Real Madrid in the 1982 Super Cup. And the eternal one against him is still pending. Athletic, corresponding to last season. Precisely the memorable night of March 4, 2020, in Miranda
Ebro, propelled the Real to dispute this Super Cup. And he returned him to the direct fight for a title 33 years later.
The Barça, the thorn of always
The 19/20 Cup final and the imminent Super Cup place this realistic generation on the map of high-profile meetings. It is the era that can return the club to the most decorated rank. The one who distinguishes the aces.
At the club level, La Real is older than a new rocker in these struggles. In fact, tomorrow’s semifinal in Córdoba is the repetition of several precedents. He Real-Barcelona It is a classic that in the New
Archangel recovers the splendor of a semi-final. They are rivals who have been measured on similar occasions. Even in finals.
According to the results, Barcelona represents an eternal thorn in the soul of Real. An unsolvable theorem. The blaugrana won the finals against the txuri urdin of 1913, 1928, 1951 and the most contemporary of 1988, especially hurtful for the Gipuzkoan family because of the breeding ground that the exits of Rekarte, Bakero and Begiristain. The controversial semifinal cup of 2014 in favor of Barça deepened the wound. The ‘supercita’ of Córdoba offers the revenge.
