    Yes, it is.

    Which makes the Milano Derby the biggest one in Europe by default. Shame we both kinda suck for 8-9 years.

    Well, that's not really a very accurate or fair comparison.

    Milano has 2 teams. We cannot count the likes of Brera Calcio or whatever else there.

    Buenos Aires has like 20 teams that have played in the top tier. Milano has only 2 and a couple of extinct ones (US Milanese which was merged into Inter comes to mind). If it were only River and Boca then sure, they'd be a more fair comparison. And it would still trump over Milano in an objective metric. So with the likes of San Lorenzo, Independiente, Racing (suburbia teams, but still BA) and others, there's no other ciyt like them.

    You can compare Milano to some Brazilian cities like Porto Alegre (Gremio, Internacional) or Belo Horizonte (Cruzeiro, Atletico Mineiro) but then you also have Rio de Janeiro (Flamengo, Fluminense, Botafogo, Vasco) and Sao Paulo (Santos, Sao Paulo, Palmeiras, Corinthians).

    I'd say Sao Paulo and Buenos Aires are the top cities, followed by Rio De Janeiro. There's also Montevideo in Uruguay.

    In Europe it's no contest.

    If Atletico were a tad more lucky (1974 final, 2014 final), then Madrid would also be there. And if the Champions League/European Cup started 15 years earlier, then Turin may have been there. Or maybe not, since Juventus could have been the poor cousin of Grande Torino.

    I will not tolerate nothing else that a WIN in the away game against Barcelona. They lost to GRANADA.
