Colin Millar and Dan Rouse join Footy Talks LaLiga

LaLiga is back! And it’s kicking off tonight with El Gran Derbi – a fiery fixture that pits Sevilla against city rivals FC Betis. 

In this special episode, hosts Carlos Verde and Mike DeLuca take us on a deep dive into the Spanish football’s ‘other’ derby – and shine a light on a rivalry that’s huge in La Liga, but less well known outside of Spain.

Colin Millar, author of The Frying Pan of Spain: Sevilla v Real Betis: Spain’s Hottest Football Rivalry, tunes in to tell us everything we need to know about the history of the region, the fixture, and the teams themselves.

And we’re also joined by The Score’s Dan Rouse who gives us a picture of Andalusian life on the ground and in the stands, and talks about the difference between English and Spanish footballing culture.
