Which is football's fiercest derby?
Around the Academy:

Ryan Giggs
Manchester-born Ryan Giggs knows all about derbies
A league season is a marathon not a sprint - or so they say!

But on occasions a whole season can be saved in a single game, at least in the minds of the supporters.

We're talking about the local derby.

One of the biggest is the famous Merseyside clash between Liverpool and Everton.

Defeat by your fiercest rivals is unforgivable and can result in weeks of stick at work or in the playground.

Free-flowing football is usually substituted by tasty challenges and a string of red and yellow cards!

The Sport Academy gives you the low-down on seven of the most ferocious derbies in the world.
