Derby Οf Τhe Εternal Εnemies (Greek: Ντέρμπι Tων Aιωνίων Aντιπάλων), also called Mother of all the battles (Greek: Μητέρα των μαχών), is the name of the basketball local derby in the Greek capital between Panathinaikos and Olympiacos. These two are the only Greek basketball clubs that have won the Euroleague and this derby is considered the most classic in Greek basketball and one of the most significant in European basketball.

History[edit]

Culture rivalry[edit]

The rivalry between the two top Greek clubs can be traced back to some social, cultural and regional differences. Panathinaikos comes from the center of Athens and was considered the classic representative of the old Athenian society and culture. On the other hand Olympiacos comes from Piraeus and used to represent the middle class of merchants in the port of Piraeus and the world of the working class. However, this kind of clash was much more pronounced in the past, as the class differences between the fanbases have faded out and the social gap that once separated the two sides has closed over the years. Nowadays, both clubs boast fanbases that represent all the social classes.

Basketball rivalry[edit]

Panathinaikos is the most successful basketball club in Greece, with Olympiacos being runners-up. The eternal enemies are the most traditional basketball powers as they have been fighting in the top level of the Greek basketball scene longer than any other team.

Their rivalry is highly credited, especially in the 1990s-2000s (decade), when they met each other in several regular season and playoff series, and in some Euroleague matches which marked their history.
