The Rosario derby ("Clásico Rosarino") is one of the most fiercely contested football rivalries in Argentine football.

It is played between the two main teams from Rosario; Newell's Old Boys and Rosario Central. It is widely regarded as the most important Argentine derby outside of Buenos Aires and the Buenos Aires Province.

History[edit]

The first Rosario derby was played on June 18, 1905, it resulted in a 1-0 win for Newell's Old Boys with a goal from Faustino González.

The clubs continued to play each other in the "Liga Rosarina de Fútbol" for many years. In 1939 the two clubs were admitted to the Argentine Primera, the first game at this level resulted in a 1-1 draw on June 18, 1939.

Experts claim that the Mexican Monterrey derby holds similarities with the Rosario derby. The teams are crosstown rivals from cities away from the capital and have very passionate fans.

Nicknames[edit]

The teams nicknames relate from the same incident where Rosario Central refused to play a charity game for a Leprosy charity, hence their nickname Canallas (Scoundrels). Newell's Old Boys stepped in to play the game and earned the nickname Los Leprosos (The Lepers).
