El Clasico vs. Milan Derby: Which Is Better and Why?

If you're a fan of derby football—and who isn't—this weekend is going to be a good one.

Real Madrid visits Camp Nou to take on La Liga leaders Barcelona Sunday at 1:50 ET. Los Blancos are wallowing away in sixth place in the table, a whopping eights points behind their rivals.

Happy 50th. They're both pretty good...

Meanwhile, AC Milan will have the home-field as they take on Intern Milan Sunday at the San Siro at 2:45 ET. Milan has started the season miserably with just seven points from six games, while Inter is right in the mix early up in third place with 12 points.

It's the biggest match of the year for each team, but which matchup is bigger? This year and in many recent ones, it's no question El Clasico trumps the Milan Derby. But what about historically?
