Copa Libertadores Final First Leg Between Boca Juniors And River Plate Postponed

Copa Libertadores Final First Leg Between Boca Juniors And River Plate Postponed

It was the game everyone was looking forward to feasting their eyes on later on but the Copa Libertadores final first leg between Boca Juniors and River Plate has been postponed due to heavy rain in Buenos Aires.

The referee inspected the pitch but ruled that the waterlogged playing surface was not for purpose and the highly-anticipated clash has been abandoned as a result.

CONMEBOL, the official governing body of South American football, have tweeted to say the SuperClasico is slated to be rearranged for as early as tomorrow, with La Bombonera poised to host the derby at 4pm local time (7pm UK time) on Sunday.

To give just an idea of what this rivalry means and how monumental it is that the two are squaring off in South America's equivalent of the Champions League, one crazy story involving fans of either side emerged this week.

Ahead of the match, a house genuinely got burned down after one fan from each team over in Misiones had a bit of beef and it ended in one blazing the other's home - because obviously that's the only logical end result.

If all goes well and the game does go ahead, some fireworks will be in store. Literally.
