Bayern v Dortmund and 9 More of Football's Biggest Rivalries [Infographic]


The Champions League final has long been the pinnacle of club football. With Europe's best teams battling it out over the course of nine months, it is as much a test of stamina as of skill, with the winning side having to peak just at the right time. The best moments in the final - Manchester United's comeback, Zinedine Zidane's wonder goal - are writ large in the history books, and for good reason.

This year, though, another element will be added to the mix: local rivalry. The big finale at Wembley sees the resumption of one of German football's longest-running battles, Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund. These two have won the Bundesliga 27 times between them and have been locked in a tussle for supremacy over the last three years. Bayern's league win this season puts an end to a two-year spell of Dortmund dominance, but Jurgen Klopp's side will have a chance at gaining revenge at Wembley.

This, of course, is just one of the classic rivalries that define football. Here at Unibet, we've put together an infographic charting ten of the biggest grudge matches in the world game – from the Derby della Madonnina (Italy) and El Clásico (Spain) to the Old Firm Derby (Scotland) and De Klassieker (Netherlands).

We'll let you decide who the real winners are!
