9

For the second consecutive year, we will have a Superclasico in the Copa Libertadores as Boca Juniors will clash against River Plate in the semi finals.

The two finalists from last season’s infamous final will play once more, this time for a place in the final. The first leg of the final was played at Boca’s la Bombonera, where the match ended in a 2-2 draw. Following much drama and at one point not even knowing if the second leg would be played, River Plate would go on to lift the Libertadores after a 3-1 win in Madrid.

Argentina’s two biggest teams will play again in the semi’s. But first they will meet in the league on Sunday at River Plate’s Monumental stadium.

Boca Juniors reached the final following a 3-0 aggregate win against LDU Quito while River Plate won 3-1 on aggregate.

River Plate will host Boca Juniors in the first leg at home on October 1 with the second leg on October 22 in Boca’s stadium.

      • yes you are right. just in Clasico games usually this is not matter so much.
        the passion and wild game is cover the tactics and the technical abilities of each team.

        if we play technical they will start hitting us.
        when they was superior than us we was doing same.

        that is why everything depend to power and who will do the mistake first.
        quality and technical game in clasico games most of times eliminated by force.
