    What's your favorite soccer derby? I love the derby between Mohun Bagan and East Bengal Club from Kolkata, India. They always play their derbies in front of 120,000 extremely fanatical fans at the Salt Lake Stadium. Although the skills of the players are not very special, the match has big status in India. Galatasaray versus Fenerbahce is also a big derby for me.

    Lazio-Roma and Boca-River Plate are the greatest and best rivalries in my opinion. Nothing approaches the passion of Boca-River Plate, but being Italian the Roma-Lazio one has always been my favorite.

    Rangers -Celtic always has a cracking atmosphere and like the Classico, has layers of meaning beyond football.

    I guess the Classico is not a derby in a geographical sense, is that the only way in which the term can be used?

    Peñarol vs nacioMAL

    95% of the soccer fans in the country are fans of one of these teams, so its not like in Argentina, where the percentage is WAY less.

    60,000 crazy fans. Both teams get the same amount of tickets, so its a fight to see who sells out first, who sings the most, who has the best celebration for when the team comes out on the field.....

    Nothing compares to it
