Actually, “big derby” doesn’t quite do either game justice.
The Derby della Madonnina – AC Milan v Internazionale – is on Fox Soccer Channel at 6 a.m. This edition doesn’t have quite the usual high stakes but there is still plenty for both teams to play for: Inter could all but clinch the Scudetto with a win, while Milan is trying to salvage Serie A’s last Champions League spot. A big time glamor match.
But the really, really cool game is El Superclassico at noon, also on FSC: Boca Juniors y River Plate at La Bombonera. You can have Real Madrid v Barcelona, or Tottenham v Arsenal, America v Chivas – for me, this one is it.
Of course, you may disagree. Your favorite derby?
UDPATE: Our photo editor Jeremy Harrison put together this sweet gallery about Boca Juniors that convinces me more than ever that the Observer got it right when it put El Superclassico at the top of this list.
