Product Description

Product Description

The superclasico, the Buenos Aires derby between River Plate and Boca Juniors, is unique in world football. These two clubs fought for supremacy in the Boca neighbourhood in the early 20th century. Today they fight for the city, for Argentina and the world. This is your ticket to the game; a guide through the streets of Buenos Aires; a journey through the dramatic and violent history of the fixture; a showreel of the great players who have played in it and an analysis of why they now leave for Europe earlier than ever before.

By Ginkers
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you ever caught any footage of South American football and wondered what all the fuss was about, take this crash course guide to one of the world's biggest games. When Boca Juniors and River Plate collide, it is never anything short of gripping. This book captures the essence of why that is the case and you can read it all in one sitting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super classy 21 Feb 2014
By MattyC
Format:Kindle Edition
A quick, easy and niftily constructed read that skips the minutiae and insider-y jargon that weigh down many football books and gets you straight to the heart and soul of one of football's most storied rivalries: Boca Juniors vs River Plate.

Richards clearly knows his stuff and has immersed himself in the often seamy world of Argentine football so that we don't have to. Refreshingly he doesn't obsess over Diego Maradona (who, Richards reminds us, only played one season for Boca in his prime), but dwells instead on local legends like the enigmatic Juan Román Riquelme and the "traitorous" Oscar Ruggeri, who committed the ultimate crime of switching from Boca to River.

Worth 90 minutes of anyone's time and by the end you'll be wishing for extra time.
