Super Clasico Inside the ultimate derby

Joel Richards

Joel Richards, the Guardian’s South American football correspondent, lifts the lid on the Super Clasico, the craziest derby in world football.

This is your ticket to the game: a guide through the streets of Buenos Aires; a journey through the dramatic and violent history of the fixture; a showreel of the great players who have played in it and an analysis of why they now leave for Europe earlier than ever before.
