In possibly the biggest rivalry in all of the Americas, Boca Juniors will host River Plate this Sunday, April 23, 2016 (12:15 PM Pacific) at the Estadio La Bombonera. This edition of the ‘Superclasico’ will not be as meaningful as previous editions as both teams do not have a chance at winning the Argentine league, yet it will undoubtedly be played under a great crowd and great emotions.
With Boca Juniors currently sitting in 5th place of Group 2, and River Plate in 9th of Group 1, both sides understand that nothing other that prestige is on the line in this match. Therefore, both sides will use their ‘B’ squads as they will save their starters for the Copa Libertadores in which they will participate in the knock-out rounds.
Nonetheless, winning this game will be very important as not only would they gain bragging rights, but also because winning such an important match will give them goor morale going into the Libertadores round-of-16. Both teams will play in the South American tournament this Thursday, April 28 with Boca facing Cerro Porteño, and River against Independiente de Valle.
The Boca Juniors vs River Plate match will begin at 12:15 PM Pacific but it will not be televised or streamed in the United States.
