We offer two explanations for why the term derby is used for a big soccer rivalry, then each offer up three of our favorite derbies.
Worth noting, we don't talk El Clasico or the North London Derby or Superclasico or the Old Firm Derby because a) you've probably heard it all before and b) each deserves its own full episode.
The Northwest Derby: Manchester vs Liverpool
The Black Country Derby: Wolves vs WBA
The Hamburg Derby: Hamburg vs St Pauli
De Klassieker: Ajax vs Feyenoord
The Istanbul Derby: Galatasaray vs Fenerbahce
The Seville Derby: Sevilla vs Real Betis
