Derbies of the Week: The Derby della Capitale & The Peruvian Clasico

This week's derbies include a heated derby in Istanbul, the biggest football match in Peruvian football and the Derby della Capitale...


Communicaciones vs Municipal, Sunday 24 May 2015, 01:00 GMT+1,
Estadio Cementos Progreso, Liga Nacional

The Guatemalan Derbi is simply the biggest football match in Guatemala. Two most supported & decorated teams in the country. This game means everything, the Liga Nacional Clausura Final 2nd leg. After Comunicaciones won the first leg 2-0 away from home they will definitely be fancied, while Municipal will be give their all to turn around the first leg deficit.


Alianza Lima vs Universitario, Sunday 24 May 2015, 02:00 GMT+1,
Estadio Alejandro Villanueva, Primera Division

El Clásico de los Clásicos del Futbol Peruano, the classic of the classics of Peruvian football... Ever since their first meeting in 1928 the bitter rivalry has continued to grow and even though both sides have made shaky starts to the season, this game will definitely be one to watch. 

Galatasaray vs Besiktas, Sunday 24 May 2015, 18:00 GMT+1, Türk Telekom Arena , Süper Lig

As two of the most successful clubs in Turkish history, there is naturally a lot of tension between Galatasaray and Besiktas. Every year they compete, along with Fenerbache, at the top of the table for the title. Besiktas lost 2-0 at home earlier in the season, so they will be looking to make up for it this time around.

Lazio vs Roma, Monday 25 May 2015, 17:00 GMT+1, Stadio Olimpico, Serie A

The Derby della Capitale is the most tense fixture in Italian football. Lazio and Roma both fight for dominance in a capital city where football is everything. The stakes are once again higher than usual on Monday.  Roma are one point ahead of Lazio on 67 points, and both teams are hoping to finish second in the league. 

Djurgården vs AIK, Monday 25 May 2015, 18:05 GMT+1, Tele2 Arena, Allsvenskan

The most bitter Stockholm derby. Historically the two biggest teams in the city, both Djurgarden and AIK are always desperate to get one over their neighbours. Djurgaden currently sit four points ahead of AIK who will do whatever it takes to close the gap to a single point.
