El derbi barcelonés is the game between the two city's club : FC Barcelona and RCD Espanyol. this match is know as El derbi barcelonés.
Reial Club Deportiu Espanyol, the 'royalist' team of the city, were founded exclusively by Spanish fans of the game, on the contrary to the multinational nature of FC Barcelona's original board. The club's first home was in the well-off district of Sarrià and was formerly known with the Castilian spelling of its name, Real Club Deportivo Español.
Traditionally, especially in the years following the Spanish Civil War, Espanyol were seen as a club who cultivated a kind of compliance to the central authority, unlike FC Barcelona, who for the majority of Catalans, symbolised the ideal of autonomy. However, the Blanquiazules in 1995 attempted to have a go at getting their own part in Catalanism by 'catalanizing' their name in a move that generally did not earn them much respect at the Camp Nou.
