There is one key difference with the two pairs of brothers. The Gasols are Barcelona’s finest. But Guillermo Gustavo Willy and Juan Alberto Juancho are Madridistas. The rivalry is intense, albeit only when the Real Madrid and FC Barcelona soccer teams meet each other. “For sure! My brother and I are Madrid fans, Real Madrid fans, and Gasol brothers – they are FC Barcelona fans. The soccer teams played a match two or three weeks ago in Madrid, the Spanish Supercup, and Madrid beat Barcelona easily. So after the game, my brother and I were crazy, like, yelling ‘Hala, Madrid!’ and ‘Let’s go, Madrid!’ The Gasol brothers were mad at us. But it is what it is,” said Willy smiling, as he thought back to the 5-1 on aggregate Real win.
