Racing Club - Based in Avellaneda, 50 metres from their arch-rivals, and follow members of the so-called 5 Grandes, Independiente; and just across the River Riachuelo form the city and Boca Juniors. They are known as El Primer Grande (the first Great Team) as they were the first team founded by and including local players, to win the league in 1913, going on to win 7-in-a-row. That also earned them their nickname of La Academia (the academy) because of the conveyor-belt of talent.
