December 8, 2018 By Oscar Rojas
The big South American clash had to be postponed due to violent incidents. Let's wait and see which team makes the most out of this atypical scenario.

How did River Plate and Boca get to this game?

River Plate enters this game with a not so positive streak, having won only two of their last five games. Prior to the draw in the first leg of this tie, River lost against Estudiantes and accomplished an extra-time win against Gremio to reach the title game.

Boca Juniors gets to this game with high hopes, despite the incidents that took place two weeks ago. Los Xeneizes are unbeaten in their five most recent Copa Libertadores games, and their form in all comps shows four games without a loss.

River Plate vs Boca Juniors controversy - Playing the game abroad was the right decision?

Following the events that took place on November 24, both teams reluctantly accepted to play this game on neutral ground. River felt they were "unfairly" stripped from hosting the final, while Boca players were eager to win this game on the table. With CONMEBOL not willing to change its stance, it was up to the Court of Arbitrage in Sports to decide if the game should be played. Once the court gave it's thumbs up, one of Boca's legends urged his team-mates to stop thinking about what happened, in order to bring the trophy back to their headquarters, known as La Casa Amarilla.
