This is a subjective-bound topic. Prsonally, there is nothing like the Milan - Inter derby

The biggest game in football is El Classico, while the biggest Derby is the Milan derby, closely followed by the Old Firm...

Derby? Milan - Inter, since the Classico can't be described as a "derby".

I'd probably go for Galatasaray-Fenerbahce. The other big derbies in Europe are too political for me, while Gala-Fener has the same intense feeling without a political sauce on top of it. Also, it's the city derby of what to me is the best city I could possibly have lived in.

I would refuse to set any foot in the stadium for an Old Firm derby. That game has nothing or very little to do with football and both teams are plain sectarian :yuck:

If 2 teams have to be from the same city for it to be considered a derby, why is the Juve - inter game called the "derby d'Italia?"

Because.both teams were the only teams who stayed in the serie A all over their history but now this is not true so it is not called Derby D italia anymore :pp

IMO the Rome-derby was more intense than MIlano-derby. Needless to say, Lazio is not even half the team of Milan and Inter and they still show up in the derby as a worldbeating team. Rome-derby brings that out from both teams, Milano derby isn't as intense imo.

Okay, i knew about the d'Italia part, but that doesn't explain the word derby in a rivalry between 2 teams from different cities.

I just checked multiple dictionaries and it has nothing about derbies in the football context, so maybe a derby can be between teams from different cities.

If you are looking for a derby of sheer madness, the Sevilla-Betis derby is just plain out nuts. Its more intense and heated than any other derby i can think of, these two teams just loathe each other.

The game is this weekend by the way ;)
