English football has produced some of the greatest rivalries in world football, but the daddy of them all is the North West Derby between Liverpool and Manchester United.
Despite the Reds' lack of silverware over the last 20 years, the North West derby is still the biggest game in English football every year, and Liverpool and Manchester United are the most successful English clubs by some distance.
Liverpool dominated English and European football through the 1970s and '80s, winning an unprecedented four European Cups in a seven-year period between 1977 and 1984. They added an immortal fifth in 2005. The Reds also won 12 titles between 1972 and 1990.
The tide completely turned when Kenny Dalglish resigned in February 1991 with Liverpool three points clear at the top of Division 1. In time we would grow to learn that the Hillsborough disaster in 1989 had affected Dalglish deeply and that he needed to step away from football.
The following season both the Premier League and Champions League were born. Sir Alex Ferguson had positioned his team perfectly to win the EPL in 1992. United had arrived at the top at the perfect moment and benefited greatly from the huge monies on offer for success.
Since 1992, United have won 13 league titles and Liverpool has won none.
The two clubs, as England's most successful teams, have won 38 league titles between them with United edging ahead over the last two seasons with 20 wins.
This tie always produces heated matches and sometimes great games do break out. Their fans generally hate each other and taunt each other with the slightest provocation. In recent times the clubs have become involved and asked fan groups not to sing certain songs at each other.
The toxic atmosphere between fans has not been helped by players either.
In short, it is a game where everyone hates to lose.
Which way do you think the Champions League final will go, and what other great rivalries are there in Europe?
