In June of 2007, the FC Barcelona was playing win LaLiga in an intense fight with the Real Madrid. In the penultimate day, the whites played in The Romareda against the Real Saragossa and the Barcelona did it in the Camp Nou against the RCD Espanyol.

In thing of seconds, a goal of Ruud go Nistelrooy and another of Raúl Tamudo did that a League that almost was Barcelona tiñera of white. This derbi unimportant for the pericos with the goal of the ex captain of the RCD Espanyol was baptised like the 'Tamudazo' and celebrated by the fans blanquiazul as if it treated of a title of his own team, since they achieved to avoid that his eternal rival conquered a title suspender belt.

Little more than 13 years afterwards, produced an alike situation but totally to the reverse.

It is thus that, almost in a situation of poetic justice, the culés prevented that the eternal rival achieved his aim, the permanence, certifying of mathematical form his descent.

The most curious of everything is that Raúl Tamudo, the hangman of the FC Barcelona in 2007, lived in direct the descent of the RCD Espanyol from the same lawn, since this Wednesday exerted of assistant of Rufete. Curiously, this last gave him the pass of goal to the own Raúl Tamudo 13 years ago, by what the two protagonists of the 'Tamudazo' assisted in direct and in first person to the 'Suarezazo', that commanded them to Second Division.
