The Buenos Aires derby be­tween Boca and River Plate was post­poned in Novem­ber fol­low­ing an at­tack on the Boca team bus by River Plate fans. It will in­stead be held at Real Madrid's Bern­abeu Sta­dium on Sun­day.

"It is a bit weird to play here but it is im­por­tant for us to fo­cus on how the game will be in Madrid," said Tevez. Copa Lib­er­ta­dores: The 36 hours that shamed Ar­gen­tine foot­ball

The Ar­gentina in­ter­na­tional, 32, said, "I think it is em­bar­rass­ing for the peo­ple, not so much for the play­ers. "They took away our dream of play­ing the fi­nal in our coun­try."
