Playmaker FC Pundits Debate The Best Derbies In The World

The North London Derby is always an emotional, fiery affair, and Arsenal’s 1-1 draw against Tottenham last weekend was full of incident and controversy.

Around the world, there are some rivalries that lead to some quite intense derbies, to say the least. The Superclasico in Argentina between River Plate and Boca Juniors is one of those that regularly sees clashes between rival fans.

The Old Firm derby between Celtic and Rangers can also be very hotly contested due to the history between the two fanbases.

Other rivalries are not so hostile, but the stakes being played for make the games just as important. El Clasico between Barcelona and Real Madrid has decided the La Liga title in many past seasons.

The same could be said of Liverpool and Everton in the eighties, although these days it seems the Toffees are just happy to derail their city rival’s title bids. So which derby is the best in the world? These fans have their say in the video below:

We can probably discount the Blades fan who mentions the Sheffield derby, but the other derbies are certainly up there. It’s a surprise that the North London derby doesn’t get a mention though.
