Banned - Playing with Fire
If it's about football quality, then it has to be El Clasico (except 4 or 5 matches in the Mourinho "era") with the English Big 4 clashes coming close.

Sevillista;3583873 said:The Sevilla - Betis derbi isn't the prettiest, but it's one of the most passionate and most comical in the world. Here's the good bad and ugly from the past decade, in no order:
4) One team lodged a complaint about the away team's jerseys, colors that had been worn in derbies for decades, and forced a delay to the game while the other team fetched their alternates from their stadium.
5) Both teams have made 3-goal comebacks
6) Both teams have dropped their differences and shown overwhelming support for each other after the deaths of two young players.

Yeah, SPL is a good day out. I was in Scotland for four years so I went to quite a few, my favourite in fact were the really back water games that we went to just for the hell of it, like Hamilton Academicals vs Partick Thistle.its_slash;3583979 said:
I should've gone to see one of those while I was in Edinburgh, but the only games I saw there were two Scottish Rugby NT clashes (I'm not interested in rugby at all; I was invited by a friend). I never even went to some other game from the SPL, which I must say, is a huge error on my side.

When I was in Tartu the Tamme stadium was being refurbished so Tammeka were playing on an astroturf pitch in Annelinn (the ghetto) which was honestly worse than the football pitches at my high school, it was surrounded by just a chain link fence, yet these were top division games and the referees were wearing the UEFA badge on their shirts. A Europa league qualifying spot was up for grabs in this league - it was a bit surrealBobby;3584281 said:Sir_Didier_Drogba, given the random places you've seen matches I bet you've seen some incredibly bad stadiums, which one was the worst?
