There Will Be A Special Radio Broadcast Of Boca-River Libertadores Final For Fans With Heart Conditions

There Will Be A Special Radio Broadcast Of Boca-River Libertadores Final For Fans With Heart Conditions

The day has finally arrived. For the first time in history, a Superclàsico will take place in this year's Copa Libertadores final - the Champions League of South America.

If you need some context behind this fixture, many believe this upcoming final is bigger than Barcelona vs Real Madrid. It might even rival an old firm between Celtic vs Rangers - it's really that big.

Boca Juniors and River Plate will go head-to-head in one of the biggest fixtures of the season, so heart rates may be through the roof for some, but don't worry.

It has emerged that Uruguayan station Radio Colonia, who broadcast from Colonia del Sacramento, will commentate in a calm manner.

They will even give cardiologists' recommendations throughout the match, while relaxing music is played in the background.

That's right. There will be a special radio broadcast of the Boca-River Libertadores final for fans with heart conditions - a terrific idea I'm sure you'll agree.

Boca Juniors Bus Attacked By River Plate Fans Ahead Of Copa Libertadores Final

published at2 years ago

Last time the two clubs met, four River Plate players were taken to hospital and the match was abandoned at half-time after Boca fans attacked River players with pepper spray in the tunnel.

This is serious, folks. Boca Juniors were subsequently disqualified from the competition that year and River Plate went on to claim their third title.

The Copa Libertadores has seen disturbing violence in recent months, and in August a match between Santos and Independiente was abandoned as Santos fans threw missiles on to the pitch.

And last week riot police were forced to protect referee Andres Cunha after he awarded River Plate their game-winning injury-time penalty via VAR.

Let's hope things don't get too out of hand, this weekend.
