The Frying Pan of Spain: Sevilla v Real Betis - Spain's Hottest Football Rivalry [9781785315244]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Seville is the capital of Spain's Andalusian region and is the life and soul of the nation. Enchanted with effortlessly stylish bars and colourful buildings, this is a charismatic metropolis doused in the endless sun of southern Spain. The city is also home to two historic institutions of Spanish football - Real Betis and Sevilla - and when they go head-to-head to contest El Gran Derbi, the rest of Spain can only watch in awe. This is a pulsating and arresting experience which encapsulates the beautiful game in all its raw, spellbinding brilliance. Spanish football is more than Barcelona and Real Madrid. Much more. The city contrasts uptown Sevilla with downtown Betis. Los Rojiblancos pitted against Los Verdiblancos. Sevillistas and Beticos. Nothing can compare to this beautiful city and the crazy passion for football that it produces, either in Spain or Europe. Colin Millar - who made the city his home - charts the illustrious histories of football in the city and explores how both clubs represent a way of life for Sevillanos.
AUTHOR: Colin Millar is a freelance football journalist who has combined covering the beautiful game in his native Northern Ireland with that of his adopted home, Seville. Colin has reported on Spanish football for numerous publications with particular focus on the Andalusia region. He is the editor of Football Espana.
