Most intimidating stadiums

It's like a gentle Sunday morning stroll down to the newsagents in comparison with trips to our 10 intimidating stadiums from around the world...

With Boca's army of fans in full voice it's a venue that seems, quite literally, to be rocking.

Nicknamed 'Marakana', due to its resemblance to the famous Brazilian stadium, the Serbian version had a capacity of 110,000 back in the seventies.

The introduction of seats has taken the capacity down to less than half that but it remains a formidable venue, a real fortress for both Red Star and the Serbian national team.

Shocked by the level of hostility and abuse, the Socceroos couldn't handle it and it cost them the game.

Back on the domestic front, its the Penarol-Nacional derby that the stadium almost lives for.

2006 saw renovation work start and this will include a retractable roof and and extra 12000 places, making it an even more unpleasant environment for opposing players.

Its actual name is the Feijenoord Stadion, buts its universally called de Kuip (meaning the Tub - a reference to its shape).

The 3rd biggest ground in Italy is probably its most intimidating.

Home ground of the legendary Penarol, the Estadio Centenario is also home to bitter rivals Nacional for their big games, including the Montevideo derby.

Sited in the city's Parque Batlle area, the stadium has a great history - built to celebrate both 100 years of Uruguay's independence and also the first World Cup finals, it has been the scene of many great games.

Be it a game involving the Croatia national team, or a home match for Dinamo Zagreb, the Maksimir can be an extremely hostile place to be.

The Croatian and Zagreb fans are renowned for their noise and movement on the terraces, creating an almost mesmerising effect for opposition players and fans alike.
