The El Clásico represents a rivalry between two different Spanish cultures – The Castilian and The Catalan. But for a true football fan, a match between La Liga’s two best teams FC Barcelona and Real Madrid simply represents a great football match between two of the best clubs in the country. This time out, things won’t be the same for either of the clubs as players like Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane, Lionel Messi won’t be a part of the Classico this season. For Barcelona, a win against Real Madrid would give them a huge boost and help them get back to where they were. As for Real, a win would keep their league form intact this season. But whatever the outcome may be, it’s going to be a treat for each one of us.

Liverpool versus Manchester United is widely thought to be one of the greatest rivalries in the world of football. Over the years, the North-west derby has never failed to live up to its hype as the rivalry not only stays in football but also extends to the economic and cultural enmity between the two cities. Hosts Liverpool, currently sit on the top of the Premier League with no losses as of now and Manchester United will be looking to end their run. Last time out, this fixture ended in a 1-1 draw and it’s been forever since United picked up all three points at Anfield.

The Derby d’Italia is a match between Inter Milan and Juventus, two of the greatest rivals in Italian football. This rivalry between the two got intense after the scandal of Calciopoli – a scandal that rocked Italy and left Juventus in Serie B. After showing dominance in the Serie A for the last many years, Juventus lost their title last season to a redefined Inter Milan breaking Juventus’ 9 consecutive title win streak. Juve will be looking forward to this matchup as they find themselves in the relegation battle as of now and a win against defending champions and rivals would give them the boost they need and Inter Milan would do everything to prevent that from happening.

With just seven races remaining this season, the battle for the Formula 1 world championship and constructor’s championship intensifies. As things stand, only two points separate Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen, and with F1 travelling to the United States on the 24th of October, we would have a much clearer view of who could be crowned as the champion. Could it be Lewis Hamilton claiming his 8th championship or could it be Max Verstappen to claim his maiden championship and end Lewis’ streak? Only time will tell.

On the 24th of October, we will also be witnessing one of the greatest rivalries in the world of cricket as India open their T20 World Cup campaign against Pakistan. The rivalry between India and Pakistan originated due to the partition of British India into India and Pakistan which laid down the foundation of one of the most intense rivalries in the world of sports. This matchup not only sparks flames between the fans but also sparks a flame between the players.
