The Estadio Monumental de Nuñez will be home on Saturday to quite possibly the biggest match in the history of South American soccer: River Plate and Boca Juniors will play the second leg of the Copa Libertadores final, and winner takes all.
Date: Saturday, Nov. 24th
Time: 3:00 PM ET
TV Channel: FOX Deportes
This incredible, historic rivalry is deciding the biggest tournament in the continent for the first time ever. These two teams played an amazing and contentious first leg two weeks ago at La Bombonera. Boca, playing at home, took the lead in the 34th minute before River responded immediately in the following minute. The fantastic back-and-forth affair ended with a 2-2 draw.
For the second match, this time at River Plate’s home stadium, the scenario is simple: the winner leaves as champion, and another draw takes us to a penalty shootout. Regardless of the outcome and how the winner is decided, this will truly be a fantastic game. These two teams are playing for the South American championship, absolutely hate each other, and will do whatever it takes to be Libertadores champions against their biggest rival. As with the first leg, away fans will not be permitted on the grounds due to the high potential of violence, but will undoubtedly make the 8-kilometer trek from La Bombonera to make their voices heard from the perimeter of the stadium.
This is without a doubt the game of the weekend in the world of soccer, and to many, the game of the century. Never before have these staunch rivals met in South America’s biggest club tournament. Both fans and players alike have dreamed of this moment for years, and finally, they’ll have the chance to etch their names into the history books.
