The Super Derby of the Americas – Doctor Nicolás Leoz Cup (Portuguese: Superclássico das Américas, Spanish: Superclásico de las Américas), also known as the Superclassic of the Americas, is an annual friendly football match-up between the national teams of Argentina and Brazil. Founded in 2011, it is the successor of the Roca Cup.
The competition was played over two legs in 2011 and 2012: one leg in Argentina, the other in Brazil. The team that hosts the first leg will alternate with each edition; the location of the first leg in the first edition was determined by a draw of lots. The country that accumulates the most points after both legs will win the competition, followed by goal difference and a penalty shoot-out if necessary. The format was changed in 2014 and now the game takes place as a one-off match in a neutral venue.
In the 2011 and 2012 editions the squads of each team were composed of footballers playing in either the Argentine or Brazilian league. However, this rule was changed for the 2014 edition and both teams can now call up players based in other countries, such as those of Europe.
