How to watch Copa Libertadores final between Boca Juniors and River Plate

Argentina’s two biggest clubs meet in the first leg of a huge Copa Libertadores showdown on Saturday night.

Bitter rivals Boca Juniors and River Plate will lock horns at La Bombonera before next weekend’s second leg.

It is the first time Argentina’s two biggest clubs have met in the final of South America’s premier club competition.

Both sides have struggled at the start of the season with River Plate as low as 10th and Boca just two places higher.

Only home fans will be able to attend each leg amid fears over violence inside and outside the stadium.

In 2015, a Libertadores match was abandoned after Boca fans attacked River players with pepper spray.

Let’s hope focus remains on on-pitch affairs for what should be an explosive encounter.
