River Plate say no to fi­nal date in Madrid

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Sport - - SOCCER -

RIVER PLATE have re­jected the de­ci­sion to play the re­ar­ranged sec­ond leg of their Copa Lib­er­ta­dores fi­nal against Boca Ju­niors in Madrid.

The much-an­tic­i­pated Su­per­cla­sico be­tween the fierce Buenos Aires ri­vals was post­poned twice last week­end after Boca’s team bus was at­tacked by River fans on the way to the sta­dium. It was an­nounced that the sec­ond leg of the fi­nal would be played at the Bern­abeu sta­dium on De­cem­ber 9, but River Plate said it is in­com­pre­hen­si­ble to play the Cup fi­nal in Spain.
