CSKA-Levski: “One of the biggest hates in the world”

The football world counts many, many derbies. These are the most special matches of the year for the fanatic fans. ‘Their’ team plays against another team from the same or another city, which is close to their team’s homebase.

In Bulgaria they also have a few big derbies, like the Plovdiv derby (Lokomotiv against Botev). But the biggest Bulgarian derby is without any doubt CSKA Sofia-Levski Sofia. Those two teams are both, what’s in the name, from Sofia.
