After several cities stepped up to host the second leg of the competition, an agreement was reached between CONMEBOL and Spanish authorities.

What started out as a rumor was finally confirmed minuted ago, as CONMEBOL has revealed that the Copa Libertadores will be held at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

Doha, Miami, Asunción and Barcelona presented bids to host the competition's final, which was re-scheduled due to violent incidents before the second leg started last Saturday. The first leg had concluded with a 2-2 draw.

As hours went by, even the Spanish government offered its assistance to celebrate the game in the Spanish capital, which will host the two most relevant club competitions in the world in the same season.

An agreement was reached after thanks to Gianni Infantino's involvement in all negotiations. FIFA's president asked the Spanish Football Federation for help on this matter, since all other options raised some doubts about their capability to host such a relevant match.

With an agreement reached between CONMEBOL, FIFA, the Spanish Football Federation and Real Madrid, the game has been scheduled for Sunday, December 9. Boca Juniors will travel to Madrid on Tuesday, while River Plate's schedule could see Los Millonarios making the trip on Monday.

According to several reports, local authorities will allow fans from both teams to attend the stadium even after the incidents that forced this game to be postponed.

Boca Juniors is expected to file an appeal, since the club feels adequate to disqualify River Plate for the incidents that led to the game's cancellation. Despite that fact, it seems that the South American tournament will have a new champion next week.
