Boca Juniors vs River Plate

Some say Partizan-Red Star is the biggest and most passionate derby in the world, others say Galatasaray-fenerbache or even Real Madrid-Barça.

I say River plate - Boca Juniors is the best derby in the world. And playing eachother in the Copa Libertadores final, how about that. Indeed, this is the first time that we have a Superclásico final in the Copa. Maybe not that much offensive power as in a CL final, but you gotta love the passion, this is unmatched if you ask me.

In my opinion Boca is the better team to watch with high skilled players such as Wilmar Barrios, Nandez, Pavon and of course Tevez, but it is too close to call. Especially since Pablo Pérez, captain of Boca Juniors, is questionable.

Players were not called for National duty in order to be fully prepared for this match.

Manager Marcelo Gallardo is suspended for River plate.

River However is a very organised team, they allowed just 3 goals in 6 away games in the Copa. 2 of them ended in a goalles draw.

Especially in the first leg i expect a very cautious game with not many goals. With roberto Tobar as a ref we can expect also some cards.

Biggest bet on under 2.0 with Sbobet ( sorry but i do not understand why betshoot removed other asian bookies such as Sbobet and 188 bet ) at 1.72, but odds on Pinna are a little too low to my taste and hence the first half under. Personally i took some on under 0.5 goals ft as well for smaller stakes.

Partizan - Red Star biggest derby in the world, are you joking??? Even mention it in context of other world derbies is frivolous. That wasn't biggest derby even in ex Yugoslavia.

Yes I'm from Croatia, and I'm not talking about Dinamo-Hajduk derbies (yes they are intense and fierce) but biggest derby in ex Yugoslavia was Crvena Zvezda (Red Star) - Dinamo Zagreb because of Croats vs Serbian antagonism, which escalated in Maksimir riots in 1991. started by Red Star hooligans and helped by yugoslav police (Milicija). In ex Yugoslavia there were 4 big clubs (so called Velika četvorka or Big 4 - Dinamo Zagreb, Hajduk Split, Partizan Belgrade and Red Star Belgrade) and every match between them was intense and fierce.

You mean started by Red Star hooligans, but only once they were: Provoked by stones being thrown at them by the Bad Blue Boys, Delije, placed in the stadium's segregated area reserved for visiting fans, began to tear the advertising hoardings and eventually made their way towards the Dinamo fans.

Taken from wikipedia.

Anyway, we are going waay off here, I only asked you if you were from Croatia, cause only in our countries people call a derby, a game between clubs which aren't located even close. A discussion we had here a few weeks ago, real meaning would be really close matches, like Hajduk vs Rijeka. :)

Heavy rain in buenos aires. The game might be suspended.

It's one of the biggest, fiercest derbies and that's because of the fans.end of story.
Like you said, with ruthless Tobar and two teams that really hate each other and have lots of fighting in their meetings, cards yellow red purple blue are very possible here.

Whatever dude, ur from Croatia so i rest my case, it is exactly how Demogorgon said. I am planning to go to this derby the following or the year next as my south american baseball friends invite me. They wanted to go wednesday but tickets were around 500 euros on the market (!). Usually you can find tickets for max 100 euro for this derby according to them, but only when you buy from reliable sources, like a guide for example.

So because of crazy rain we will play tomorrow and hence all bets stand. However, tomorrow it will rain even more, much more with lightning and all. They will cancel again? I hope they will play, it will make it harder to score goals, but i am already not expecting much action tomorrow in order to not get dissapointed again

Oh my God are you all retarded, I didn't say River-Boca isn't biggest derby in the world, but Red Star-Partizan...very shallow people here. I rest my case.

I agree with MG over 80% It was one of the crucial games between Dinamo Zagreb and Crvena Zvezda. From that game begin a war but from ex Yugoslavia first ligue was interesting watching a football.
So, MG what about Rijeka and Osijek ... ? HNL derby or not ...?
Congratulation for Dinamo. You are probably from capital ...?
