49East Bengal V. Mohun Bagan

Out more than 300 matches played till date, East Bengal is leading the race whereas Mohun Bagan is far ahead of their arch rivals in numbers of trophies. The East Bengal is once a part of Mohun Bagan before one of Mohunbagan official decided to form his own club. It is a fierce battle and the rivaly can be compared to Celtic and Rangers derby because both of them are of similar type.

Why the hell is it not higher...The fierce Kolkata Derby which attracts 100k fans at any match at condition...two communities of Bengali people based on the partition...the Bangals and the Ghotis absolutely hate each other...intense flares, fights and the specific tastes of fish just adds to the flavour of the rivalry...pride of Indian football!

50Everton v. Manchester United
51Adelaide United v. Melbourne Victory
52Everton v. Liverpool
53Dinamo Zagreb v. Hajduk Split

Hadjuk Split vs Dinamo Zagreb is more than a football match for their fans

54Alajuelense vs. Saprissa

Big time clasico, in Costa Rica. Saprissa definitely has the upper hand with more championships and games won. They also have a much bigger fan base.
