first_imgLuis Suarez makes his return to football this weekend when he is expected to play for Barcelona against Real Madrid.El Clasico will see Suarez, Lionel Messi and Neymar take on Cristiano Ronaldo, James Rodriguez and Karim Benzema (Gareth Bale is injured).That is not the only derby taking place, though, as Greek sides Olympiakos and Panathinaikos go head-to-head, so talkSPORT looks at five of football’s craziest derbies, ranked by the arrow to see the top five. 1. Fenerbahce v Galatasaray: Turkey (Intercontinental Derby) – The recent encounter, known as the K?talararas? Derbi, between the two, won by Galatasaray 2-1, saw Gala fans recreate Graeme Souness’ iconic 1996 celebration (picture from @GalatasaraySK). The Scot, then manager, provoked the opposition when he planted a flag into the Fenerbahce pitch after a Turkish Cup final win – fuming was not the word… 3. Celtic v Rangers: Scotland (The Old Firm) – Police in Glasgow may be missing out on valuable overtime after Rangers were booted out of the top flight in 2012, but their health is presumably much better. The back pages are usually dominated for days leading up to this highly anticipated clash. 6 5. Flamengo v Fluminense: Brazil (Fla-Flu), Red Star Belgrade v Partizan Belgrade: Serbia (Eternal Derby), Roma v Lazio: Italy (Il Derby Capitolino) – In Brazil, Flamengo’s football team was created in 1911 after nine players from Fluminense broke away to form a rival side in Rio, while in Belgrade, Red Star and Partizan contest what is known in Serbia as Veciti Derbi – Eternal Derby. The fixture between Roma and Lazio in Italy is well known for the chaos that can follow when the two sides meet in the capital. 2. Boca Juniors v River Plate: Argentina (El Superclasico) – Both clubs were actually formed in La Boca in Buenos Aires, but River left in the late 1930s and set up in the money bags area of Nunez (hence the Los Millonarios nickname) while Boca stayed put. Head to either stadium and it is a see of colour – blue and yellow for Boca Juniors and red and white for River Plate. 6 6 6 6 4. Olympiakos v Panathinaikos: Greece (Derby of Eternal Enemies) – Traditionally Olympiakos represented the working class and Panathinaikos the upper class in Athens. Once the petrol bombs have been dealt with (first image) the local police will tell you that they’re both as bad as each other. Even players aren’t safe… Click the arrow to see five of football’s craziest derbies – This weekend sees two big derby clashes as Real Madrid and Barcelona go head-to-head in Spain, while in Greece Olympiakos and Panathinaikos play out the ‘Derby of Eternal Enemies’.
