If the eighties had begun with the dominance of the Basque teams and ended with the monopoly of Real Madrid, In the nineties, Cruyff's Barça took over from Madrid at Quinta del Buitre. The white team added 1990 his fifth consecutive league title, but from the 91 Barça won four championships. In three of them he reached the last day in second place. They were the two setbacks for Real Madrid in Tenerife and the La Liga penalty missed by Djukic. After those four Barcelona leagues, Real Madrid would win two titles (95 Y 97), the athletic one (96) and Barça two (98 Y 99) before Depor finally achieved its League in the year 2000.

In that context, It is understandable that the majority of the most outstanding players of that decade wore the Barça shirt.

In the early nineties one of the stars of the League was Paulo Futre. The Portuguese arrived at Atlético as an electoral promise of Jesús Gil in the year 87 after having won the European Cup with Porto and the Silver Ball. In the six seasons that he wore rojiblanco in his first stage (came back in 1997 to play 10 meetings) He became the idol of the Calderón fans and a key part of the team that won the Copas del Rey over the years. 1991 Y 1992, In addition to being league runner-up in 1991. After his retirement he returned to Atlético as sports director and collaborated in the return to Primera.

Bebeto It is possibly the most remembered face of the Superdepor that Lendoiro built and that made history. It is true that in his debt remains the memory that he did not want to take the penalty that could have given the Galician team the League of the year 94. Donato, the one in charge, was not on the grass, Bebeto refused and Djukic made a mistake. but baby, who arrived in La Coruña convinced by some photographs of the Galician beach, made history in Riazor, scoring in four years at Depor (93-96) 102 goals in 154 encounters and achieving in 1993 the club's first Pichichi trophy with 29 goals.

Ronaldo Nazario of Lima He only played one season in the nineties in Spanish football, but his performances went a long way. He arrived at Barça from PSV for a record transfer of 2.500 million pesetas and went to Inter a year later, in 1997, When did he win the Ballon d'Or?, paying the 4.000 million pesetas of its clause. In that season he won the Copa del Rey, the Recopa and the Spanish Super Cup, finishing runner-up in the league. In those four competitions he scored 47 goals in 49 matches and left images to remember, as a spectacular goal against Compostela in one of the best plays in history. I would return to Spain in 2002, When would he win his second Ballon d'Or?, to play 5 seasons at Real Madrid.

Rivaldo left his mark both on Deportivo, where he played in the season 96-97, like in Barcelona, where he played the next five years, winning two Leagues and one Copa del Rey and scoring 130 goals. In addition to its football quality, He went down in history for being the first player in the history of Spanish football to leave a team paying his termination clause. Núñez paid in extremis to Deportivo the 24 million euros to achieve his freedom and make up for Ronaldo's goodbye.

And Butragueño He was the crack madridista of the eighties, the one who replaced him up front would be the icon of Real Madrid in the nineties. Valdano trusted Raúl González Blanco when he was only 17 years old and belonged to the third team. But in October 1994, the casualties led the Spanish-Argentine to risk looking at the quarry. and Raul, Former Atlético player, began that day a glorious career. Sixteen seasons at Real Madrid in which he won 16 titles and the fact of becoming the top scorer in the club's history and the player with the most games played as a Real Madrid player made him a legend.

In addition to the aforementioned Futre, Bebeto, Ronaldo, Rivaldo or Raul, Other players of obligatory mention such as Stoichkov and Romario at Can Barça also went down in history in the nineties, Roberto Carlos in Chamartín or Julen Guerrero ,Athletic standard-bearer and example of fidelity to certain colors.

It was a decade in which Deportivo, Atlético and Valencia threatened the supremacy of Barça and Madrid. Today, the Galician team tries to resurface after falling to Primera RFEF and the Ché team is at risk of falling to La Liga SmartBank. La Liga continues stronger than ever, being one of the most followed leagues in the world. Keep track of sports betting forecasts in SOSapuestas can be a great help, since they predict that the dominance of the blaugranas and whites will continue. Atlético has remained in recent years as their only threat.
