In the "Foot nostalgia" of the week, Le Figaro takes you back to 1983. The day when Diego Maradona, with an anthology goal, transported Barcelona and raised the ovation of fans of Real Madrid.
"Carrasco gave me the pass in the middle of the field," remembered Diego Maradona in the columns of the daily newspaper Olé . I dribbled the goalkeeper, I waited for Juan José (Real's defender, note) and I let him pass. ” While the goal was wide open, the Argentine made a hook as futile as humiliating for Juan José, feigned. "He hit his balls against the post and I just had to push the ball into the net," commented Maradona trivially. Insolent of ease, the Barcelonan saw the Madrid public stand up to applaud him. An unprecedented fact in an often animated, sometimes sulphurous rivalry. Only Ronaldinho (2005) and Andrés Iniesta (2015) have been able to capsize the hearts of enemy supporters since.
