The Clásico between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid in Week 14 of La Liga began with a spectacular animated mosaic. The more than 90,000 fans at Camp Nou unveiled a mosaic that contained a depiction of ‘castellers’ (human towers) in which the words ‘Força Barça’ could be seen. Both areas behind the goals bore the yellow and red of the ‘Senyera’, the Catalan flag. Unlike other mosaics, the one against Real Madrid was unique in the sense that it was dynamic, moving from the bottom part of the stands to the top, echoing the building of a ‘castell’ (human tower).

The unfurling mosaic was accompanied by the Barça anthem. The fans sang along as they, little by little, unfurled the mosaic to create a 100% blaugrana atmosphere.

That was how the fans welcomed the two teams out onto the field, Luis Enrique’s and Zidane’s teams accompanied by a banner that read #FuerzaChapecoense in tribute to the victims of the plane crash in Colombia in which members of the Brazilian club Chapecoense were killed.
