    Hi guys, I'm Martin del Palacio, Spanish Editor for FIFA.com. We're writing a story about the Guatemalan Clasico but we have struggled to find any colorful anecdotes or interesting stories about it.

    I'm sure there are thousands, so if you know some, would you mind sharing them with me so I can include them in the piece?

    Thank you very much for your time.
    Martín

    Municipal once humiliated Comunicaciones in a final by beating them in both legs 5-1 and 4-1 for an overall 9-2 agg. I dont quite remember the year, I think in 2004.

    Thanks a lot for your help guys, do you remember any particular rivalries between players? or some manager who was hated by one team but loved by the other? If you know some things like those, they would be very helpful.

    Thanks!

    P.S. I'd love to have Guate in FIFA 10, but it's up to EA. I think they will be there for the World Cup Edition though

    We had a player who died during a clasico. I believe it was in 2002 when Municipal goalkeeper Danny Ortiz collided with Mario "el loco" Rodriguez of Comunicaciones during a match. Danny Ortiz later died from a head injury caused from that clash.

    Mario Rodriguez ironically now plays for Municipal. He's still hated by some Rojos fans for that incident, especially by the radical "Ultra Roja".

    Also, Horacio Cordero was loved as the Rojo's coach, then signed to coach Cremas and won back to back titles in 2002/2003...

    Creamas has been the only team, to be champion 4 years in a row, before there was apertura , clausura, although Municipal(rojos) claim they had won the championship 5 times in a row, they were champions only 2 1/2 years, so the cremas, have been the team that has hold a champinship longer time!!!
    oh and rojos, are ghetto people,!!! lolz,

    Thats not exactly true. When Comunicaciones won the Tetra, the last one was a short apertura tournament. Solo ganaron 3 torneos largos al hilo.;)
