The Copa Libertadores 2018 will conclude when River Plate faces Boca Juniors in Madrid, Spain on Dec. 9. The match was scheduled for November but was postponed after Boca's bus was attacked by a small group of River fans, injuring several Boca players, and the following day it was postponed again.
This match is set to feature fans from both teams at Real Madrid's Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday.
The Copa Libertadores final second leg has been delayed, suspended, and postponed (twice). Now it's finally set to be played, albeit at a neutral venue, after Fifa decided to move the fixture to Real Madrid's Santiago Bernabeu.
The postponement came after River Plate fans attacked the Boca Juniors team bus as it arrived at El Monumental, the venue for the second leg. Players and staff required treatment for their injuries, with Boca's Pablo Perez needing treatment after his eye was caught by a shard of glass.
Now there is dissatisfaction from both sides; Boca want River thrown out of the competition after the chaos in Buenos Aires last month, while River are refusing to play as they believe the game should be played in South America.
But with the second instalment of the Superclasico finally set to go ahead, the football can finally resume. It's easy to forget the first leg produced an entertaining clash, the two sides playing out a 2-2 draw - River twice coming back from a goal down.
The winner not only gets the bragging rights in the Argentinian capital but also a place in the Fifa Club World Cup, which is being held in Abu Dhabi in two weeks' time. But with tension still running high after the events from the first leg, it promises to be a feisty clash in Madrid.
