well at one point it was fnatic vs nip, but nowadays there are so many real top teams that its hard to tell
Astralis Liquid last year I guess
SK vs fnatic was THE el classico but like #1 said theres so many real top teams nowadayz and to be honest they are way more inconsistent too
nip vs fnatic was, is and will always be el clasico of csgo
Obviously NiP vs Fnatic, if you consider the all time scene...
only teams in contention: nip, fnatic, astralis, vp, any french teams with old top players
Best rivalries for me is fnatic vs nip 2013-2015.
Other good ones are, Navi nip 13-14, navi could never beat NiP.
Also Fnatic vs dignitas (fnatic couldnt beat them until tec9 buff).
Astralis vs VP was enjoyable too, after VP threw major final against xyp3x 1v3 with tec9 and VP followed it up by destroying astralis 2 or 3 times in a row.
Old Kinguin raping VP on LAN after pasha trashtalked international team, 16-0 on cache :D
it changes from year to year
nip vs fnatic back then
and most recently sk vs faze on 2017 and
astralis vs liquid i guess now
a while ago it was faze x mibr. dont ask me why.
what is El Clasico mens? Is it Italian?
El Classico has always and will always mean NiP vs fnatic. Never a disappointing game
Nip vs fnatic - IEM Sydney 2019 unforgettable game
NIP with Maikelele vs fnatic was the only real classico there has ever been, charisma wise.
Envy vs NIP final came close though, who doesnt remember overpaSS
Nip vs Fnatic w/o question.
Currently its mouse v faze
Fnatic x Natus Vincere
Mousesports x FaZe Clan
Former: Ninjas in Pyjamas x Virtus.Pro
NiP vs Virtus.pro back in the day were the best games
Astralis and liquid, I'm waiting for astralis to make chokequid the first team to get 16'0d outside of groups.
nip vp nip dnatic fbatuc envy
If you stop to think, every match that includes two teams from the same country is a El Classico, for an example:
Fnatic x Nip
G2 x Vitality
mibr x Furia
And theres the big top teams, like:
Astralis x Liquid
Ence x Liquid
Astralis x Faze
Faze x Navi
Navi x mibr
SK vs Faze 2017
Fnatic vs NIP begining of csgo untill end of 2014
SK vs VP early 2017
Astralis vs Liquid 2018
NAVI vs VP was the real shit
NiP vs. Fnatic
Always close games
Right now it'd have to be Astralis and Liquid.
Of all time:
1) NiP - Fnatic
2) SK.br - NaVi
3) EnVyUs - Fnatic
4) Cloud9 - iBUYPOWER
5) Titan - NiP
The El Classico doesnt necessarily involve the best teams. Imo there were only 3 El classicos
1.Fnatic vs EnvyUs 2015
2.VP vs Astralis 2016
3.SK vs Faze 2017-2018
Nip vs fnatic
SK vs Faze (2017)
Liquid vs Astralis
Navi vs Nip
Now per Regions/countrys
Asia vs Oceania | Renegades vs TyloO?
Americas | Liquid vs LG/SK/mibr core
NRG vs Liquid
Europe & CIS | Nip vs Fnatic
Mouz vs Faze
Astralis vs French Teams (G2 & Vitality), this is for the TSM vs Envyus
Navi vs Nip
I will add more as I go remembering...
NiP v fnatic
Virtus.Pro v Na'Vi
EnVyUs x fnatic
TSM x EnVyUs
fnatic x TSM
cold vs s1mple - baitlords
flusha vs gla1ve - cheatlords
jame vs idk - savelords
NiP vs Fnatic 2013-14-early 15
nV vs Fnatic late 2015
Liquid vs Luminosity/SK 2016
I’m not sure for 2017 myb G2 vs North (cuz of “drama”) or SK vs FaZe
Liquid vs Astralis 2018/19 for sure
NIP vs VeryGames
GeT_RiGhT - shox
friberg - SmithZz
f0rest - NBK
Fifflaren - Scream
Xizt - Ex6TenZ
A true Clasico would be f0rest vs NEO.
They are battleing each other since 2005, most hltv users weren't born back then!
Navi vs Sk
Navi v Gambit
Liquid vs Astralis
EnVyUs vs Fnatic
The only real el classico in cs go is Nip vs Fnatic. Newfags dont know about that!
LG vs NaVi was always good as well
and turks used to know ss-sk/mibr games as a el-clasico
Swedish-Polish cs battles was called "el classico" back then since 1.6
Frenchies vs swedes
Forze vs epsilon
Epsilon vs Riders
Riders vs Forze
M16R vs BUG
Some sort of coownfiesta el classico
NIP vs fnatic cologne 2014 probably best match
NiP vs fnatic such a great rivalry
It will always be NiP vs Fnatic
SK - VP
Cloud9 - SK
FaZe - Astralis
NiP vs VeryGames
NiP vs Fnatic
SK vs VP
FaZe vs Astralis
Astralis vs Liquid
NiP vs fnatic is the only answer
NiP vs SK.swe
NiP vs fnatic
It changes every year imo
2012 : Nip - VeryGames
2013 : Nip - VP ?
2014 : Nip - Fnatic
2015 : Fnatic - Envy
2016 : Luminosity/SK - Navi
2017 : Faze - SK or Astralis - VP
2018 : Liquid - Astralis
Vitality and G2 would be le classique
I love both teams tho
TSM vs fnatic 2015 definitely
For me VP-Fnatic, NiP-Fnatic
Giants(Portugal) and Movistar Riders(spain) its a great rivalry always
VP vs Fnatic (with pronax)
NIP vs Fnatic (with pronax)
Why do people insist on saying liquid and astralis, el clasico is fun to watch, astralis is not fun to watch vs liquid.
tier 2 el clasico
furia vs nrg
Envyus - Fnatic Always overtime on inferno
i remember those times when it was old Natus Vincere vs EnvyUs, it was always 50/50 and it was exciting to watch
Fnatic NiP everything else was no rivalry for years on top level
currently has to be astralis liquid
well Sk vs Faze was one of the most entertaining rivarlys, like nip vs fnatic on Sydney but nowadays maybe ast vs liquid
Nip x VeryGames
Fnatic x Envyus
Sk x Faze
Liquid x Astralis
Team VeryGames vs NiP best games ever
NiP vs VP was always cool coz of f0rest vs neo
AGO X Windigo.... Polish lul teams...
nip fnatic match was always fun to watch :/
Vodafona Giants vs. Movistar Riders
Astralis vs Lulquid
Fnatic vs NIP back in days
MIBR old VP
old VP Fnatic
Mouz vs FaZe is for me little bit El clasico
comparing the most legandary duel in football history to some random cs match
For me the closest to an El Classico is NiP-Astralis, the main line-ups going back to the Dignitas days.
How the fuck noones remember LG vs VP in 2016
vp vs sk gaming the best rivalry
