River vs Boca: CONMEBOL decision on Copa Libertadores final second leg | preview

The fate of the 2018 Copa Libertadores final between River Plate and Boca Juniors is to be decided today in a summit meeting at the headquarters of the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) in Paraguay.

Alejandro Domínguez, the president of CONMEBOL, is to hold talks with Rodolfo D'Onofrio and Daniel Angelici, his River and Boca counterparts, respectively. Ahead of a meeting that is scheduled to commmence at 10:00 local time (14:00 CET), D'Onofrio arrived in Paraguay yesterday, while Angelici was due to travel this morning.

After the tie's second leg was twice postponed at the weekend in the wake of an attack by River supporters on the Boca team bus, today's meeting will determine when the rearranged clash will take place, whether it will remain at Los Millonarios' El Monumental stadium or be moved to another venue, and whether the match will be played with fans present or behind closed doors.

Measures are also expected to be taken against River after CONMEBOL on Monday confirmed disciplinary proceedings against the club over Saturday's trouble, which saw three Boca players taken to hospital after members of their squad suffered cuts from broken glass and were affected by tear gas used by police.
