CLASSICO VOV˘ (GRANDFATHER DERBY)
In Rio de Janeiro, there is a fierce rivalry between the 4 big clubs (Vasco, Flamengo, Botafogo and Fluminense). The oldest derby is Botafogo -Fluminense. Both were founders of the Rio de Janeiro league in 1906, and still today they quarrel about the 1907 title. It's known as the Classico Vov˘ (Grandpa derby), since it dates from way back to the 1900s.
