Argentina: Boca Juniors

River Plate, another Argentine powerhouse, could arguably sit alongside Boca Juniors if winning were all that was taken into account.

Both are considered among the best clubs in the world, but Boca Juniors has the higher profile. It's considered the most popular team in South America because superstars like Diego Maradona and Carlos Tevez have played for the club and brought added attention.
