Boca Juniors vs River Plate (By: Mulder)
Some say Partizan-Red Star is the biggest and most passionate derby in the world, others say Galatasaray-fenerbache or even Real Madrid-Barça.
I say River plate - Boca Juniors is the best derby in the world. And playing eachother in the Copa Libertadores final, how about that. Indeed, this is the first time that we have a Superclásico final in the Copa. Maybe not that much offensive power as in a CL final, but you gotta love the passion, this is unmatched if you ask me.
In my opinion Boca is the better team to watch with high skilled players such as Wilmar Barrios, Nandez, Pavon and of course Tevez, but it is too close to call. Especially since Pablo Pérez, captain of Boca Juniors, is questionable.
Players were not called for National duty in order to be fully prepared for this match.
Manager Marcelo Gallardo is suspended for River plate.
River However is a very organised team, they allowed just 3 goals in 6 away games in the Copa. 2 of them ended in a goalles draw.
Especially in the first leg i expect a very cautious game with not many goals. With roberto Tobar as a ref we can expect also some cards.
Biggest bet on under 2.0 with Sbobet ( sorry but i do not understand why betshoot removed other asian bookies such as Sbobet and 188 bet ) at 1.72, but odds on Pinna are a little too low to my taste and hence the first half under. Personally i took some on under 0.5 goals ft as well for smaller stakes.
