Boca Juniors vs River Plate live online: Superclasico: as it happened

Boca 0-2 River: as it happened

Scuffles breaking out as Boca players manhandle the ref.... River players celebrate and Boca coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto is far from happy with the referee's decision pushing the match official

93'   Corner for Boca as Armani stops majestically  

91'   Boca huff and puff but apart from the first 15' of the second half, they've been outclassed by a better River as Boca hits the bar and  River clear their lines 

  Despite the adverse score line, still plenty of noise coming from the home fans (away fans banned from Argentinian top flight games)    

88'   We're set to have 4 minutes of time added on at the end of the 90

87'   Boca keep pushing as the clock ticks down. Gallardo was more than astute in adressing the problems that Boca were causing with good changes in Zuculini &  Scocco

84'   Five to go in La Bombonera. Can Boca salvage anything from the SuperClasico?

82'   Benedetto set to come off ...final throw of the dice for Guillermo Barros Schelotto.... Villa the man coming into the fray

81'   Boca win a corner as we head into the final ten minutes

80'   Another call for a spot kick and this time it's River who call for a penalty. Once again ref. says no.

77'   Rash tackles flying in from Boca players now as Almendra is booked. Impotence from the men in navy and yellow as the ref tries to ensure things don't get out of control.

Nandez carded for two footed tackle

71'   The Scocco strike should see maxiumm points head to the north of the city as I can't see Boca clawing their way back into the game as River dominate

What a strike from Scocco as he silences La Bombonera

Gooooooooooooooooooooool River make it 2

68'   Despite their improved performance in this half, Armani has yet to really be called into action as time ticks at La Bombonera

Tevez off (discreet pèrformance from El Apache) Zarate on for Boca

Almendra carded

Scocco comes on for River with Pratto the player making way, final change for River tonight

63'   Still no way through for Boca despite a step up in play in the second period.   

61'   Cardona drives a free kick dangerously close to the goal as Enzo Perez is subbed for Zuculini comes on

Another spectacular image from La Bombonera tonight

Calls for VAR for the Argintinean league  

  Another call for a penalty for Boca as Pavon is pushed over in the area. Once again the referee disappoints the home fans and waves play on

50'   Great chance for Boca as the ball drops perfectly to Benedetto who tries a scissor kick but drives the ball high and wide

50'   We're underway again and Casco seems okay to carry on.....High energy start to this second half too

50'   Casco take a bad tumble and appears to have damaged his arm. 

48'   Boca seem to have come out with a better attitude as they apply more pressure with Cardona firing a long range effort on goal



Correct call on both occasions!

46' Double call for a penalty from Boca for hand ball x 2. Ref says play on much to the ire of the 49000 fans

Fouls getting more robust as we move towards to the end of the first 45'. River worth their lead. 

44' A yellow is the end result for Cardona.

42'   Enzo Perez goes down after a tangle with Cardona. River players look for a card and a red could even apply for an elbow in the face from the Colombian.

Jara off / Cardona on for Boca

41' Jara seems to have failed to recover from an earlier knock as Ponzio is booked.  

Cardona looks set to join the action.

39' Play held up as players are attended to after a clash of heads.... We're back in action as Almendra latches on to a lose ball but his half volley gheads wide 

River Plate's Gonzalo Martinez celebrates his goa

35'   10 minutes to hgo in the first half with River clearly on top. Two efforts from Benedetto all Boca have to date with the current champions failing to get any rhythm together  

33'   Danger once again from River as they link well down the right hand side but the final ball is straight at Rossi 

31'   Pavon certainly the danger man for the home side

30' On the half hour mark, once again great work from Pavon on the left flank as he feeds Tevez but the veteran fails to get a shot on target

25' Great work from Pavon on the flank as the ball breaks to Nandez who rifles over

Barrios booked for River

Confirmed: Martinez off and Quintero on for River 

22'   Looks to be a hamstring iussue as Quintero looks to replace the goalscorer 

21' This looks worrying from a River point of view as the best player for the away side looks to have picked up an injury.... Looks bad as River subs start to warm up

20'   Martinez bossing the game at present, at the heart of all the River Plate attacking play 

A slightly more subdued tweet from the Boca twitter account !

7'   River now press with an entertaining start to the action with both sides sahring spells of dominance 

6'   Benedetto fires from long range and calls Armani into action with the River keeper tipping over. First danger on goal of the evening goes to Boca

4'   River break up the other end with Palacios' cross overhit as thew visitors maintain a sustained spell of possession.

3' Early pressure from Boca  as Pavon and Tevez link up well 

3' The traditional tense start to a game of this magnatitude.....plenty of niggly fouls

Teams are on the pitch at a  packed La Bombonera as 4th placed boca Juniors face eternal rival River Plate 

Hello and welcome our live coverage as Boca face River 

The city of Buenos Aires and indeed most of Argentina will came to a halt tonight as the focus turns to the biggest domestic game in the league as Boca Juniors face River Plate in El Superclasio, a game that rarely disappoints with Boca currently fourth in the Primera Division with ten points with unbeaten River in 13th on seven points.

This Sunday’s derby in La Bombonera will be just the sixth matchday of the 2018 Argentine Superliga season with both clubs still involved in the Copa Libertadores with River drawing 0-0 with Independiente and Boca securing a 2-0 home win over Brazilian outfit Cruzeiro.

Boca Juniors do go into this one as slight favourites being reigning champions of Superliga, and have impressively strengthened their squad again in a bid to retain the title and secure a historic three in a row.
