Saturday’s first leg of the Copa Libertadores final involving Boca Juniors and River Plate could be delayed.
Rain has been hitting Buenos Aires lately and inspections are on going at La Bombonera. With the draining system not being the best at the stadium, COMMEBOL officials will investigate the pitch one last time ahead of kick off to see if the match will be played or not.

The big final is expected to kick off on Saturday afternoon, should it not be post poned.
