The on-again off-again second leg of the 2018 Copa Libertadores final is finally going to happen…probably. The Superclásico has been moved to a mutual venue all the way across the Pacific Ocean to the Santiago Bernabéu, but at least world fans can watch the Boca Juniors vs River Plate grudge match via a Copa Libertadore live stream from anywhere in the world – and it's possible to do so absolutely FREE!
Forget Merseyside, North London or Milan – Boca Juniors vs River Plate is probably the world's most fiercely competed football derby. The two Buenos Airies-based clubs are bitter enemies. That's why the second leg of this Copa Libertadore final (think the Champions League but for South American clubs) has had to be pushed back and moved from Argentina to an entirely different continent. The crowd trouble surrounding the previous two attempts meant that the fixture had to be postponed.
The first leg that ended in a tantalisingly poised 2-2 draw. Both teams (and their fans) are desperate to come out on top in this once in a lifetime fixture. It's the first time ever that two Argentinian teams have played in the Copa Libertadores final. Serious bragging rights are up for grabs with Boca Juniors looking to add to their six previous titles, while River Plate have had the taste of glory more recently in 2015.
