The match of the century takes place at the Santiago Bernabeu this Sunday after the incidents which forced CONMEBOL to change the venue. Boca Juniors and River Plate are bitter rivals and this game should’ve been played at River’s Monumental.
River are considered the favorites to win the title, but anything can happen in such a big game. Real Madrid will reportedly try to sign River’s Exequiel Palacios after the game and could also face the winner of this match in the upcoming FIFA Club World Cup which will be played in the United Arab Emirates.
Boca couldn’t take advantage of their home-field advantage in the first leg and the match ended 2-2. Away goals are not a factor in this competition, so any kind of draw will take the game to ET after the 90 minutes of regulation.
Only one thing is certain, though. The winners of this game will have bragging rights for years to come.
