Top Ten Rivalries In Sports


The Contenders: Page 3XW

41River Plate v. Boca Juniors

Should be top 10, but some American (United States) made this list...
NCAA Basketball rivalry top 2? Are you kidding me? - redshark

42Flames vs Oilers Hockey

The Battle of Alberta Canada!

My vote moved this up from 81 to 59!

43Steelers vs Ravens

Should be number 1. Everybody in America knows this rivalry regardless if they watch football or not. Way too low on the list!

It's a rivalry because the Ravens used to be the Browns. It should be way up there.

The Blood Bowl is outside the top 10? What is happening? Go Ravens!

What, how the hell is this not even close to top ten?

44Kentucky v. Louisville College
45Brazil v. Argentina

Oh no! Its Brazil vs France. Look at the times both have denied each other to be in the the top 4!

46Germany vs Netherlands Football

I don't think any of the upper 10 belong there because the worst rivalries are the Eastern-European soccer rivalries which cost hundreds of casualties yearly (! ) For a sport!

47Bill Russell vs Wilt ChamberlainV1 Comment
48White Sox v. Cubs Baseball

Chicago is a city split in two. The North Side and the South. At EVERY game between these two you can expect an intense atmosphere between not only the teams but especially the fans. It gets crazy!

49Torino vs Juventus
50Yankees v. Mets
51New South Wales vs Queensland Rugby League

How is this not at least in the top 20! Australia's greatest sporting rivalry! Mate against Mate - State against State!

52Capitals vs Penguins

Who cares if the Pens always wins, but its Crosby vs Ovechkin

53Rangers V Celtic (Old firm)

Fiercest and greatest rivalry ever

54Dan Marino vs Joe Montana
55England vs. Australia Cricket

Dating back to 1882, this is the grand-daddy of all international sporting rivalries.

They have their own rivalry. Check out the Ashes dude. All for the the little Trophy full of Ashes.

56Springboks vs All Blacks

The greatest rugby union rivalry in the history of the sport! Spanning competition of a century, these two teams have settled as the number 1 and number 2 sides of all time, constantly replacing one another in the rankings and always keeping true to the spirit of rugby.

I am an all out All Blacks fan. Every time they play the Springboks though, I know it is going to be a match to remember.

57Washington Redskins vs Dallas Cowboys

This should be top ten easily biggest pro football rivalry

I don't see how this isn't number 1 We #HTTR fans Hate Dallas with a passion. I never been to a hame where a fight didn't break oit. I been in a few myself and

58Bulls v. Lakers Basketball
59Oklahoma vs Texas FootballV1 Comment
60Lionel Messi vs. Cristiano Ronaldo

This should definitely be in the top 10. Talk about debate on one topic!

This is a big rivalry were you can't tell the difference sometimes were lionel Messi has won 4 ballon de ore and cristano Ronaldo 3 this is a hard competition were I think Messi is the superior one
