History of the Superclásico Rivalry

As with many of the great rivalries in world football, the Superclásico is a local derby. Both sides hail from Buenos Aires, and each started in the same La Boca neighborhood. River Plate was founded in 1901, while Boca came shortly after in 1905. River would move to a more affluent district in 1925, but the local rivalry continued.

The club’s two home stadiums are some of the most iconic in the game. River Plate’s El Monumental is the largest capacity stadium in South America and is also the main home venue of the Argentina national team. Boca’s La Bombonera (“the chocolate box”) got its name due to the unique shape of the stadium. With three steep stands, a distinctive single vertical sideline section, and FIFA-minimum pitch dimensions, the venue creates a compact, intimidating atmosphere unlike anywhere else.

Sadly the clash has often been marred by fan violence. Most recently, at the 2018 Copa Libertadores final, Boca’s bus was attacked by River fans ahead of the second leg, causing the game to be suspended and moved to the Santiago Bernabéu in Madrid, Spain.

The two sides have played over 250 times in official matches. Both sides can count legendary players amongst their ranks. Names like Riquelme, Diego Maradona, Carlos Tevez, Enzo Francescoli, Ariel Ortega, Hernán Crespo and many more have graced the pitch over the years in this historic fixture.
