Greatest Soccer Rivalries

The fiercest and most exciting rivalries in all of soccer.

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Brazil v Germany
42 Wales v England
43 Serbia v Albania
44 South Korea v. Japan

When arguably the best two national teams in Asia go head-to-head, the game becomes as intense as any local club derby in Europe or South America in terms of the quality of the game and hatred between these two nations. Given their historical animosity, this is a rivalry that must be mentioned as one of the fiercest.

Although Japan together Korea host the 2002 World Cup, Japan is not cheating. While Korea seems to pay a referee in a game against Italy. - naufal15JC

Nope South korea is better. Korea won Japan by 2-0 in London Olympics.

45 England v. Argentina
46 Lokomotiv Plovdiv v. Botev Plovdiv

Everyone from Bulgaria knows what I am talking about..

47 East 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.

This One Definitely.

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!

54 Dinamo Zagreb v. Hajduk Split

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

55 Portland Timbers v. Seattle Sounders

Best American club football rivalry

Cascadia Cup Rivalry has made soccer in America fun in this Northwest Corner of the US

Proof that there is a good, if still budding, soccer culture in the U.S.

LA galaxy vs SEA sounders is a close if not even rivalry

56 Portsmouth v. Southampton
57 Everton v. Manchester United
58 Adelaide United v. Melbourne Victory
59 Everton v. Liverpool
60 Alajuelense 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.
