The snare of the drummer was already in the rhythm of the heart. The baton is done by bombo (tac, tac, tac) and is ready for the most important events in South American football history: Copa Libertadores final. And this is not even one. This Saturday (3 pm, Fox Sports) will be the two symbolic clubs of Argentina, Boca Juniors and River Plate. And Rafael Santos Borre and Juan Fernando Quintero, along the banks of the river with Will Mars Vario and Bova, Sebastian Villa and Edwin Cardona are from Colombia.
However, the reality of national soccer players is different and paradoxical. The two most talented players will not play at first. Kindero is on the bench and Cardina is going to go to the supercraft and can not be an alternative.
Owners are Barrios, Villa and Borre. The first round of applause was five minutes away with applause and the first round of applause. Already among the Boca fans became the custom of "Ole, Ole, Ole, Ole, Nigro, Nigro". The Barrios game is one of Xeneize's DNA. It is a game to hit without putting, putting, resting. There is a reason why entering the Boca heart is not so complicated.
Villa and Borre were more complicated because they had to compete with recognized names in the Boca and River. Boca needs $ 2 million to spend, and Villa is one of the most controversial supporters, such as Tevez, and Zárate, close to $ 3 million. Utilizing the low performances of Ignacio Scocco and Rodrigo Mora, Borre was fatal to the Libertadores. He scored in three return attempts before Liverpool entered the final round (Racing, Independiente, Gremio).
There will be no revenge.
In Argentina, they are responsible for repeating that it is not a matter of life and death. The next day life will follow normally, and where there will be a winner and loser is a football game. That's right. They will be right, life will go on, but the loser will be burdened back with his remains as his unforgettable existence.
President Boca Juniors and River Plate, Daniel Angelici, President Rodolfo D 'Onofrio, and Conmebol, Alejandro Dominguez, representatives from Buenos Aires Said he should be the first Superclassico in the 2018 Copa Libertadores final. A peaceful way
In a joint press conference with Bombonera de Boca, the first leg this Saturday, Angelici has asked for "peace of mind and can be enjoyed with the family," and D & # 39; Onofrio insisted that we should demonstrate. "There is no gap in Argentina, and soccer can be a bridge of reconciliation between the two clubs."
But the truth is that this final will be the last game to play with the round-robin. In the other year, it will be a neutral place. So the Boca River can not be a perfect revenge. Because Conmebol does not have a chance to have a final in a mythical stadium: La Bombonera de Boca and El Monumental de Núñez.
The world-class neighborhood classics will not only paralyze the football world on Saturday, but will also cause paralysis on Saturday, November 24, until a team of eternal glory is announced on the river.
