Red Star Belgrade vs Partizan Belgrade

Also termed the Eternal derby, this affair is considered one of the hottest affairs in Serbia given the fact that the two clubs share a duopoly in the Serbian SuperLiga. Usually attracting large audiences, violence during the match is not uncommon and in 1999, 17-year old boy was killed by a flare let off by the opposition stand. The most recent outing was fiery affair. Quite literally, when the Partizan fans set the Red Star Stadium ablaze and hurled rubbish to intensify the flames. While Red Star is streets ahead when it comes to trophies and accolades, the influence of the derby is diminishing with corruption allegations rife in the entire Serbian football system. With both teams standing out in an ocean of mediocrity, a contest between the two is a treat for the eyes.
