The derby week kicked off on Wednesday night with Milan and Inter playing in the quater final of the CL.

Milan won 2-0, thanks to Stam and Sheva ..

The second derby this week, and considered the strongest and biggest derby in europe, if not the world, between Real Madrid and Barca.

For the past few years, the derby wasn't as exciting as this one, because Real Madrid and Barcelona are finally in the top of the league, after years of Valencia and Deportivo dominance.

The third and final derby, the smallest of the three, with respect to them offcourse :D , is between Arsenal and Tottenham.


Who is going to watch "el classico" from you neutral fans? Because we all know there won't be a single Madridsta or Cule whom is going to miss the game

The Madrid-Barça is not a derby (this is when the two teams are from the same city), it's just the 'Clásico' ;)

In Europe, derby usually means the biggest or a big game.

For example Inter - Juve, is called the Derby of Italy.

Thats true, it isn't a derby like Real Madrid - Atletico Madrid and Barcelona - Espanyol, but like the others said, everyone calls it a derby ;)

I'll watch it of course. You don't miss games like these. However it won't be as even a game due to Real not being at their best. This encounter will be something really special two seasons from now when Real and Barcelona lock horns for bragging rights and La Liga rights.

There is Panathinaikos-Olympiakos in Greece, and Steaua-Dinamo in Romania too.

And Athletic Bilbao-R.Sociedad in La Liga.
