You know Milan,
You know its world famous football clubs.
You know its world famous derby.
But what you probably didn’t know, is that in the same region of Italy just 40 minutes up the road, there’s two other clubs who have just as fascinating rivalry of their own that involves tanks, pigs, and medieval battles, but hasn’t seen a derby in thirteen years.
Off the back of our insane trip to Superclåsico in Buenos Aires, Derby Days is back for season 5 and this time it’s all about “The Wait”. The intense rivalries between clubs from England to Germany to Italy that haven’t met for 7, 8 even 13 years. What happens to a rivalry when there’s an absence of meetings? Is it a case of absence makes the heart grow fonder or is the rivalry even more heated thanks to the anxious wait?
In Episode 3, the final episode for this season, we head to Lombardy, Italy, for the first derby in more than a decade between Brescia Calcio and Atalanta B.C. Two clubs who share a rivalry that goes way beyond football and into every facet of local culture from the dialect to the food to the culture of war and violence in the region. Despite being provincial neighbours, different time spent in different divisions meant the two had been suffering their longest derby drought, until this season, where they would both finally meet in Serie A.
