River Plate - Boca Juniors live: Copa Libertadores final postponed again - as it happened

River Plate vs Boca Juniors: preview

River Plate and Boca Juniors are scheduled for a second attempt at playing the second leg of their 2018 Copa Libertadores final at El Monumental today, after yesterday's clash was delayed by 24 hours in the wake of an attack by River fans on the Boca team bus.

Three members of Boca's squad required hospital treatment after players were left with cuts caused by glass from broken windows and were also affected by tear gas used by police against the River supporters involved.

The rearranged match is due to begin at 21:00 CET, but in the hours ahead of kick-off the fixture was thrown into doubt after Boca confirmed that they have formally requested that the return leg again be suspended to allow the final to be played in "conditions of equality".
