Audible Editor Reviews

This is a rich and detailed portrait of one of the most famous matches in Argentine football: the superclasico, fought amongst the Buenos Aires rivals Boca and River Plate. Sports correspondent Joel Richards provides a crash course into the history of the clubs, the culture and context of the game, and city in which it takes places. To his credit, he doesn't shy away from the complexities and problems surrounding the game. Performer Damian Lynch's voice is gravelly and deep, and pronounces the Spanish names with ease. Recommended for fans looking for insight into this fiercely passionate match.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Very good but..."

    Very well read by Damian Lynch (as always). Would have liked it to have been longer though. More about the recent history of the rivalry would have been good. Other than that, a very good listen and well worth buying.
