The Biggest and Most Hatred Filled Rivalries in Football (Part 3)

G'day tribe. Over the last couple days I've started from #15 and worked my way down through the biggest and most hate filled rivalries in football. Who is in your top five and who do you think is number one? Let's go through the final rivalries!!

Part 1 | Part 2

5. Liverpool vs Manchester United

North West Derby rivals Liverpool and Manchester United are one of the biggest rivalries in football and are separated by only 35 miles (56 km). The two clubs are the most successful and most popular in English football. Both clubs consider each other their fiercest rivals ahead of their own local derbies.

4. Inter Milan vs. AC Milan

Inter Milan formed in 1908 after breaking away from AC Milan because they wanted to sign international players. The Derby della Madonnina features the traditionally wealthier Inter Milan up against the working class AC Milan and the crosstown rivals even share the same stadium.

3. Boca Juniors vs River Plate

The Buenos Aires rivals clash in the Superclassico which is one of the top football derbies in the world. Both clubs were founded in the working class area of La Boca. River later moved to the higher class Nunez setting up one of the biggest rivalries in football.

2. Celtic vs. Rangers

The Old Firm splits Glasgow right through the middle in the second biggest of derbies in football. Rangers are historically supported by Christian Protestants and Celtic supported by Catholics. The majority of Rangers fans are also pro-British loyalists and are native and Ulster Scots. Celtic fans are traditionally Irish immigrants.

1. Real Madrid vs Barcelona

Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona battle out the El Clasico in the biggest derby in football. They're both the two largest clubs in the world and are the two largest cities in Spain. The Ronaldo vs. Messi era of the rivalry splits both fans as much as the political differences between both sets of supporters with opposing beliefs on Catalan independence.

This was a great read @wolfgangsport

I remember learning about the rivalry between Celtic and Rangers. I mean, I am not surprised that it is one of the biggest rivalries in the world of football.
Sir Alex himself was a victim of the heat. He faced discrimination in Rangers because he got married to his catholic wife.

Notwithstanding, The rivalry adds to the flavour of the game jare. May it continue 😂😂

I really liked this series! I feel like there are so many rivalries more that are not that well known. But it all depends in what country you are and how big of an expertiese you have in these ligues. I think you covered the most well known ones and I dont think you missed any which is already a very good acomplishment! :)

Real Madrid vs FCB has always been the most heated football match.

I think the rivalry will soon change from Liverpool vs United to Liverpool vs City

Messi and Ronaldo, these two no doubt are the heartthrobs of modern day football.Sometimes I wonder, if both of them were not in the same league,then there wouldn’t be rivalries so tight, and fans buzzing around poking each other, time to time.

Huh ha..It just feels so funny when fans go crazy supporting and reprimanding opposition.

Good take on the rivalry context,👍💯

Great post! definitely the greatest rivalries are these, here in Buenos Aires we live in a very special way the Boca River, the city literally paralyzes for this game, plus the players fight fiercely, they want to win at all costs, not even imagine how it would be to live El Clasico or a Celtics vs Rangers, football is a great sport!

I think rightfully, the El Classico took the first spot. However, I feel that vibe died when Ronaldo exited and only Barcelona had Messi. With the Argentine gone now, the rivalry may be built up again ,this time with a different flavor where there are no "focus players" like CR7 and Messi.

So many great rivalries to talk about. Ohio State vs Michigan or Alabama vs. Aurburn are two of the best in college football. I saw your post on ListNerds because a ListNerd member shared the link to your post in an email. If you are not already a member of ListNerds, you may want to consider joining and get the same benefits as the person who shared your link. I would love to see more of your posts.
